New Brunswick Family Day Trips & Destinations
Are you looking for family day trip ideas in New Brunswick? Well, we have a list of over 50 for you!
When it comes to family travel, I truly believe in exploring where we are from. Two summers ago 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 put together this resource to help you plan some day trips and weekend destinations in New Brunswick.

UPDATED IN SUMMER 2022

It is one of Sackville’s oldest surviving homes, containing a museum to showcase the areas rich history.

Hey everyone! Have you ever stopped to look at what there is around you when planning a night or weekend away? We have started a new blog series called “#StopToSeeNB – Visiting Hometowns In New Brunswick”, to share some of the reasons we love New Brunswick, why we are proud to be from here, and in order to instill a sense of belonging in our children. We are a family of 4, Ruth Ann (me), Doug (my husband), Lorne (16 yrs) and Clayton (6 yrs), and traveling most of the time with our dog Bo. We will highlight the things we saw, where we ate and where we stayed in each place we visit.
