Family Winter road trips can be so much fun (when we are able to travel again, planning ahead never hurts!). 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.
Summer 2020 Road Trip Check List
Road Trips are so much fun and our family has always enjoyed road-tripping year round. Most of our road trips are within our home province of New Brunswick, especially this summer as we explore closer to home during a global pandemic.
New Brunswick Family Day Trips & Destinations
When it comes to family travel, I truly believe in exploring where we are from. Last summer we started a series called #StopToSeeNB, hoping to encourage more people to explore and visit our picturesque and heritage rich province. In 2020, with the province in a state of emergency and our borders closed, we have put together a resource to help you plan some New Brunswick day trips and weekend destinations this summer. This list will be updated and grow as we visit more places.
Our travels will be a little different this summer, with some destinations not opening or having limited services. PLEASE check with each destination before heading out to ensure they are open and what precautions or limitations to service they have in place at this time. You may be required to wear masks, there may be closed areas or limited services.
Our Winter 2020 bucket list contains activities to do, experiences to enjoy and destinations to visit in New Brunswick with our children. We will be sharing our family ideas for things to do with a 7-year-old and a 16-year-old. Of course, many activities can be enjoyed by other ages as well, we are just sharing what we are doing and experiencing.
Winter Festivals In New Brunswick
We are keeping our goal for Winter Festivals this year to 2, only because the weather and road conditions may limit the travel we can do. We compiled a long list with details as we were researching our plans, so we are sharing here for your enjoyment and planning. We also shared our Winter Family Bucket List to help share more ideas for winter, family-friendly activities in New Brunswick.
UPDATED 2020 EDITION!
With Christmas right around the corner, houses are being decorated inside and out. Some people have a few strands of lights, while others go all out.
With lockdowns, no parade, limited access to activities, etc, we hope to make 2020’s list and map a favourite resource for families in Greater Moncton.
We have compiled a list of all the bigger or unique (one of a kind) light displays in the Greater Moncton region. The list was compiled on our Facebook page in 2018 & 2019, and we will continue to update and add to it here on the blog.
Inside: Our visit to the Magnetic Hill Zoo in Moncton, New Brunswick. Sharing photos from our visit as a family and my experience at Breakfast with the Tigers.
One of our family favourites for many years is right here in Moncton. The Magnetic Hill Zoo.
This summer they introduced a new program called Breakfast With The Tigers, which I will tell you all about below. I received a complimentary experience from the Magnetic Hill Zoo in exchange for sharing our experience with you. All wording, photographs, and experiences are our own.
This summer we have a bucket list of activities to do and destinations to visit in New Brunswick with our children. We will be sharing ideas and things to see and do with a 6-year-old and a 16-year-old. We had to get creative on this one, it’s not always easy finding activities for these two!
Our goal for this summer with the kids comes down to finding new places to EXPLORE, new things to LEARN and trying new food to EAT. We will also be re-visiting some of our favourite spots along the way.
Road trips are always a fun way to spend time together, learn about where we are headed and explore our beautiful province and country. If you are traveling in New Brunswick, be sure to check out our list of New Brunswick Roadside Attractions or how about Daytripping In NB With Kids?
One of the best ways to save money when road tripping, is to plan ahead and save on gas. Below we are sharing some tips to save on gas purchases.
