#StopToSeeNB – Sackville, New Brunswick

Inside: Our #StopToSeeNB, two night family visit to Sackville, New Brunswick. Sharing what we did in Sackville, where we ate and where we stayed.

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.

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.

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 perfect family outing. We have put together a list of Winter 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 features Outdoor Winter Activities for the family. We are kicking it off with Outdoor Skating Venues in Greater Moncton. We also have a list of Sleigh Rides In NB, as well as Maple Sugar Camps In New Brunswick and Winter Festivals In New Brunswick
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!
