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.
Pebble Beach is a such a beautiful spot, fun for the kids, wonderful to photograph and at low tide, lots of space to hike and explore. Pebble Beach is part of the Cape Enrage Nature Preserve just north of Cape Enrage, on the Bay of Fundy in Albert County.
When travelling from Saint John to St Martin's on Route 111, why not venture along the coast via Route 825 and visit a few beaches along the way? McLeod's Beach is the first of 3 beaches you will come across.
McLeod's Beach, Reed's Beach and Gardner Creek Beach are all on NB Route 825.
There is no parking, so we pulled off along the side of the road, there are a few spots with a little shoulder. When the tide is out,
When it comes to family travel, I truly believe in exploring where we are from. We love day trips, weekend adventures and to explore Atlantic Canada.
We are sharing mainly our weekend wanderings, day trips within 2-3 hours of Moncton, NB (where we are from), and some longer adventures we have had in Atlantic Canada.
Any other travel will be shared in the appropriate categories.

Day-tripping in Nova Scotia - Joggins Fossil Cliffs
The Joggins Fossil Cliffs are located in Joggins, Nova Scotia, at 100 Main Street. This is a great day trip from Moncton, NB at just over one hour's drive. We spent hours on the beach after exploring the interpretive centre.
As part of our Halifax weekend getaway in April, we visited the Discovery Centre for the first time in it's new location. WOW!!
"The Discovery Centre is a not-for-profit registered charitable organization whose mission is to bring STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) to life through fun, interactive learning experiences." ~ thediscoverycentre.ca
Visiting the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Halifax NS
The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is a regular stop for us when visiting Halifax, NS. I can't count how many times we have visited, and each time we all have a good time reading, watching, playing and exploring.
One of my favourite spots in Fundy National Park is Point Wolf Beach.
Just before crossing the Point Wolf covered bridge, be sure to stop at the Red Chairs and enjoy the view.
FUN FACT: There are about 60 covered bridges in New Brunswick. This one was built in 1992 and is 29m long.
Day Tripping - Kingsbrae Gardens in St Andrews, NB
Kingsbrae Gardens in St. Andrews NB is a beautiful place. I have been to St. Andrews many times over my 40 + years and only last summer did I get the opportunity to visit the gardens.
Our family took a day trip from Moncton, with my kids and nephew, and headed to St. Andrews to visit the Huntsman Marine Science Center. On the way, I was looking at the NB Tourism Guide and trying to figure out what else to do when we got there.
Day Trip NB - Fundy Trail Parkway
The Fundy Trail Parkway is the perfect spot for families with any age children. There are hiking, biking and auto routes, making this ideal for anyone to enjoy.
We went and explored a few trails, down to waterfalls, across the suspension bridge and also drove the length of the trail. We also visited the interpretive center at Great Salmon River. My history loving hubby and older son have to read all about everything! We will be headed back this summer to check out the beaches and the extension to the route since we last visited.
