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!
A winter vacation can be a wonderful change of scenery for you and your dog. But like any trip, you must plan ahead and be prepared. We love including Bo in our travels and adventures as much as possible. There are so many pet friendly options these days, from accomodations to businesses that will allow you to bring your dog inside for a walk around.

Just because winter is on the way, it does not mean you should stop exploring. Winter road trips can be so much fun! Not only are many destinations more picturesque in winter, they often offer off-season rates, additional outdoor activities and an opportunity to explore by skiing, snowshoes, sleigh ride and more.
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.
When it comes to family travel, I truly believe in exploring where we are from. We love day trips, weekend adventures and to explore Atlantic Canada.
We are sharing mainly our weekend wanderings, day trips within 2-3 hours of Moncton, NB (where we are from), and some longer adventures we have had in Atlantic Canada.
Any other travel will be shared in the appropriate categories.

Day-tripping in Nova Scotia - Joggins Fossil Cliffs
The Joggins Fossil Cliffs are located in Joggins, Nova Scotia, at 100 Main Street. This is a great day trip from Moncton, NB at just over one hour's drive. We spent hours on the beach after exploring the interpretive centre.
Winter Road Trip Check List
We are trying harder each year to enjoy more time outside in the Winter. In Eastern Canada, we tend to get a large accumulation of snow most years. This is great if you are into skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or other snow related activities.
As I have been planning activities this Winter, checking out festivals (such as the Jack Frost Festival in PEI), looking for activities to do as a family, or seeking venues to visit within a few hours of our home, I got to thinking about what to take with us. Packing the car up for a Winter Road Trip is a little different than what I pack in the warmer Summer months.
In our vehicle, we pack a Road Trip Kit, and now have different seasonal lists of what to pack. You can find these printable lists for Summer or Winter, as shown below.
