Some people like to think New Brunswick is a drive through province… just a way to get yourself to Nova Scotia or PEI. It’s not.
New Brunswick is a province with some of the most beautiful lakes, rivers, and coast line in the world. Old, still used light houses and ancient rock formations dot the coast, while rivers and lakes full of plentiful fish and wildlife are everywhere in the interior.
Every province has something that connects their citizens, be it geographically, or culturally. In New Brunswick, what connects us is Water. It is what the province thrived on for decades, through transportation, shipbuilding, and now it is a major tourism producer. But who could forget about the fisheries? They’ve been a part of New Brunswick since its creation. World-class salmon fishing? Yep, we have that. Fresh-off-the-dock lobster? We also have that.
Next time you are in New Brunswick don’t take the Trans-Canada, all you will see is forest for miles on end. Take the scenic routes along the St. John River, the Acadian Peninsula, or the Bay of Fundy; these are some of the most scenic water-side drives you will ever do.
