The Bay of Fundy is a bucket list destination for thousands of avid vacationers, but there’s so much more to the experience during the fall than just the awe-inspiring bay itself. Fall colours around every turn, and the fragrance of autumn in the air.  Fall is just not complete without a drive along the Petitcodiac river and the Fundy Coast in Albert County.

 

 

The first thing to design is your driving, walking, hiking, and biking plan because there are no bad choices in this beautiful area when fall shows her colours - you’ll find trails aplenty

 

Fundy National Park

The region exists in the boundaries of the Fundy Biosphere Reserve, which UNESCO designated as one of the world’s Amazing Places. It needs to be experienced to be believed and brings many people to a moment of both meaning and magic.

As you create your plan, prepare to be enchanted by the coastal views, the waterfalls hidden in the spectacular Acadian forest, and the unique coastal formations rising from the ocean floor under the powerful Bay of Fundy tides. Some of the most visited choices along this discovery route are Fundy National Park, Hopewell Rocks, Mary’s Point Bird Sanctuary, Crooked Creek Lookout and Trail Riverside Albert, Waterside Beach, and White Rock Recreation Area in Hillsborough.

 

 

You can also experience some of the local ‘flavour’ by sampling world class seafood and fresh harvest produce, and taking in the ‘Fundy Fresh – Taste of Place’ tour connecting eclectic villages by trails that bring you to local wineries and craft breweries like Riverview’s Craft Brewery Beer Garden Patio. You can also find out more on the history of this magnificent area by stopping by the Albert County Museum in Hopewell Cape where they are celebrating a 175th birthday this year.

As you’re road tripping through, be sure to keep an eye out for the artists, makers and creators that reside in the region – it's a cultural mecca! Nestled all along routes 114 and 915 you can drop in and visit a number of local artisans creating in their studios as well as ‘popping up’ in local shops and events.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

We are so excited to see small businesses reopening over the next few weeks. The struggle has been extremely real as many have invested so much ♡ Wishing everyone the upmost success throughout 2020 in recovery and moving forward. Robert H. Schuller: “Tough times never last, but tough people do.” Nous sommes heureux de voir la réouverture des petites entreprises au cours des prochaines semaines. Ce défi a été extrêmement réelle car beaucoup ont investi tellement ♡ Souhaitant à tous le plus grand succès tout au long de 2020 dans la récupération et en progressant ensemble. #nbalways #hoperestored #explorenb #localartisans #fundystudiotour #wendyjohnstonpottery #artisan #buylocal #pottery
