New Brunswick has many roadside attractions, hidden gems and unique places to add to your next road trip! We created this resource in hopes that you slow down, take time to explore and stop a while next time you are on the road in New Brunswick. These are short stops, not activities that take hours, but a place to stop, look, have a bite to eat or stretch your legs. Pack a picnic lunch and bring your camera, snap a photo at some of these fun attractions. Feel free to share on social using hashtag #StopToSeeNB so we can see all the fun you have!
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.
Are you decluttering and don't know where to take all your "stuff"? We have compiled a list of options for donations and consignment in the Greater Moncton region.
Skating is a huge part of winter for many, but do you like to skate outside, in the fresh air? This series will feature Outdoor Winter Activities for the family. We are kicking it off with Outdoor Skating Venues in Greater Moncton.
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!
This gift guide was sponsored by the businesses mentioned. Ireached out to select businesses in my community, where I shop and support. All opinions are my own.
Christmas is just a little over a month away, and this year we are going to be shopping local for much of our gift giving. The kids still want a few toys or video games, but this year we will be looking locally to purchase from our local retailers, artisans and service providers. Below we are highlighting a variety of gift giving options for Children, Teachers, Men and Women.
A 5% shift towards buying NB = thousands of new jobs + hundreds of millions of dollars towards our economy! ~ Excellence NB
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.
Taking time to connect as a family is something I really did not realize we needed, at least not until we did it.
Did you know we have a beach, right here in New Brunswick, that has black sand? Black Beach is located minutes outside of Saint John, in Lorneville.
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.
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,
As you can tell, based on our previous beach adventures, we have been visiting some beaches on some windy and cooler days. To be fair, often it is much warmer and even sunny inland, but when you head towards the Fundy Coast, you never know what's in store. When heading out on any road trip, and especially a beach trip, always dress in layers and pack a sweatshirt!
