Our 2020 Holiday Season Family Bucketlist!

With the world in limbo for making long-term plans these days, I thought I would create a bucket list of Family Favourite activities that we hope to do this year. If not, we will have lots of ideas and be able to plan for next year, right!?!

Support Local: Why is it important to shop local?

Let’s just say, 2020 has been challenging! Everyone’s lives have been changed in some way due to the global pandemic. As individuals and as business owners,  we have had to rework how we go about our day to day lives.

Most businesses have had to pivot and rethink their business strategies. Some businesses have been hugely successful in adapting and discovering new ways to reach their customers.

New Brunswick Family Day Trips & Destinations

New Brunswick Family Day Trips & Destinations

When it comes to family travel, I truly believe in exploring where we are from. Last summer 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 have put together a resource to help you plan some New Brunswick day trips and weekend destinations this summer. This list will be updated and grow as we visit more places.
Our travels will be a little different this summer, with some destinations not opening or having limited services.  PLEASE check with each destination before heading out to ensure they are open and what precautions or limitations to service they have in place at this time. You may be required to wear masks, there may be closed areas or limited services.

Local businesses are the hardest hit at this time. With everyone running to big box stores for their toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and even food, the locally owned businesses are trying to figure out how to provide service to their customers, continue to provide their products and services in a safe way and ultimately, how to pay the bills if they lose these weeks of business. 

Today, amidst the closures and reduced hours, I wanted to share some inspiring and uplifting stories and encourage you to support local if you can.
