Highlights

Saint John, New Brunswick

Also known as “Port City”, Saint John is Canada’s oldest incorporated city, being established as a city in 1785. It’s rich in historic architecture, boasting some of the most well-preserved Victorian-era architecture and is an eco-attraction treasure trove, with newly planted trees, beaches, and beautiful nature parks. The Bay of Fundy, a funnel shaped dip in the Atlantic coastline, creates tides up to 55 ft with water levels rising to an average of 28ft during high tide.

Fun Things to Do:

  • Experience Stonehammer Geopark, a UNESCO Global Geopark. The park was created by the collision of continents, the closing and opening of oceans and volcanoes, and climate changes. Covering the entire Saint John region with geology over 1 billion years old, it is a sight worth seeking out.
  • Observe the “Reversing Rapids,” Saint John’s best-known attraction. The St. John River changes direction throughout the day and when visiting during slack tide, you’ll be able to see the water completely stop and change directions.
  • Stop at Canada’s oldest charter market, Old City Market. It is filled with numerous vendors from fishmongers and sausage makers, to local artists offering watercolor paintings and historic streetscape etchings.

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Founded in 1794 as a naval base, Halifax is built around the world’s second-largest natural harbor. Today, the capital of Nova Scotia is a vibrant urban city with historic architecture and a restored waterfront. It’s blue-gray presence is visible from the surrounding hills and centuries old buildings. Halifax brings together unique history and modern excitement; with a small-town charm and the excitement you would expect from a big city.

Fun things to do:

  • Explore one of Halifax’s museums and galleries. The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia houses an extensive collection of artwork featuring Maritime folk art and works by world-renowned artists. Nova Scotia’s Museum of Natural History provides insight to the native cultures and history of the province, with interactive displays on Nova Scotia’s wildlife and full-scale models of marine species.
  • Stroll along gravel garden pathways at Halifax Public Gardens. This 16-acre garden located in the heart of the city features flowers bursting with color, gazebos to sit and relax, and fountains to view.
  • Relax on a drive through the beautiful Nova Scotian countryside to the moody, weathered village of Peggy’s Cove. Once there you can catch the best panoramic views and the most photographed lighthouse in the world.
