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.
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.
We are enjoying our summer and setting out each week, or so to #discoverNBbeaches to share with you. We hope you are enjoying this series, and would love any suggestions on beaches to visit!
A recent outing, on a cool and breezy Spring day, led us to explore Gardner Creek Beach on route 825, NB. It is located along the Fundy coast between Saint John and St. Martin’s, about 1.5 hours drive from Moncton, 30 minutes from Saint John, and about 15 minutes from St. Martin’s.
In 2017, we ( the boys and I) spent our summer in Quispamsis, caring for my mom after her stroke. Exploring beaches was one of the things we did to get away from the hospital and get the boys outside. We went to the Irving Nature Park a few times over the summer, and here are some of our photos and the details on the park.
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.
