Winter Sleigh Rides in New Brunswick

Winter is often a hard time of year to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. We are trying to do more and more in the winter months to get outside as a family and enjoy activities in the cold. 

While it is sometimes too cold  to hit the slopes or skate outdoors, a sleigh ride, bundled up under a blanket with a thermos of hot chocolate could the the perfect family outing. We have put together a list of Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides available to book in New Brunswick.

Winter Skating In Greater Moncton

Skating is a huge part of winter for many, but do you like to skate outside, in the fresh air? This series will feature Outdoor Winter Activities for the family. We are kicking it off with Outdoor Skating Venues in Greater Moncton.
I remember as a child and teen spending many hours at outdoor rinks with my family and friends(I practically lived at the local arena as well, for figure skating). I grew up in Quispamsis, NB and always skated on the Kennebecasis River or at the Rothesay Commons. 

Now, living in Moncton, and raising my family here, we are learning where all the best spots are around the region for our favourite winter activities. This list of outdoor skating rinks is the start of our Outdoor Winter Activities series. Watch for new activities and roundups of locations coming soon!

Tips For Winter Travel With Your Dog

A winter vacation can be a wonderful change of scenery for you and your dog. But like any trip, you must plan ahead and be prepared. We love including Bo in our travels and adventures as much as possible. There are so many pet friendly options these days, from accomodations to businesses that will allow you to bring your dog inside for a walk around.

It’s Christmas and I am thinking of our beautiful NB Beaches! #MyNBChristmasTree

Over the past few summers, my boys and I have spent many hours on the road, visiting and exploring our beautiful New Brunswick coastline.  As I thought about a theme for a New Brunswick Christmas Tree, my very first thought was to create a tree that represents all those fun day trips and adventures we have spent as a family. Family is our focus this time of year, so we decided to create some ornaments that cherish those tidbits of time spent Discovering NB Beaches. There is so much more to explore in NB, and I look forward to adding more hand made ornaments to this tree each year.

Just because winter is on the way, it does not mean you should stop exploring. Winter road trips can be so much fun! Not only are many destinations more picturesque in winter, they often offer off-season rates, additional outdoor activities and an opportunity to explore by skiing, snowshoes, sleigh ride and more.
