Your hub for all things fun in the heart of the Maritimes
Perfectly positioned between the Fundy and Acadian coasts, Moncton’s got just what you need at all the right times. Fresh off a Bay of Fundy adventure? Recount stories over a 5-star meal. Headed to the beach soon? Stock up on cottage essentials. Give the kids the thrill of their lives; watch the tidal bore; hit the shops and see what you might discover. In this city, kids and parents each get exactly what they want.
The Greater Moncton Area, which includes Moncton, Dieppe, and Riverview, is a great mix of English and French Acadian cultures in the geographic centre of the Maritimes. It’s also a wonderful mix of outdoor adventure and urban experiences. The tidal bore—when the power of the Bay of Fundy tides reverses the flow of the Petitcodiac River—is just one of the ways you’ll enjoy the outdoors here. Parks, trails, golf courses and cycling are all popular ways to get outside.
Kids will have the time of their lives here. Magnetic Hill Zoo puts kids face to face with animals they’ve never met before. Magic Mountain will have them screaming with joy, thanks to the amusement park rides and water features. And Resurgo, the area’s museum and discovery centre, makes learning fun.
And all you adults, get ready for some fun! The region is packed with some of the province’s best restaurants and bistros; you can get your arts and culture fill at the Capitol Theatre, Aberdeen Cultural Centre, and Dieppe Arts Centre; take a chance or two at Casino New Brunswick; and yes, you can shop till you drop—Moncton is the Maritimes’ premier shopping destination.
