Fredericton is our provincial capital city, but it’s the rivers – the mighty Saint John and the adjacent Nashwaak – running through it that surely imprints the distinctive character. Combine this with the city’s distinct historical character and Maritime-style urban experiences, and you’ve got the perfect mix of summertime fun.
Frederictonians live on nature’s doorstep. There are waterfalls, over 120 km of trails, including the iconic Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge spanning the river, three of the province’s top golf courses, as well as forest bathing and Wabanaki Tree Spirit Tours in the city’s Odell Park. Nearby are Hyla Park Nature Preserve, Kings Landing historic site, Mactaquac Provincial Park and Lakeway Houseboat rentals at Mactaquac, Fredericton Fishing, and Second Nature Outdoors to tempt everyone from the novice to the expert with vacation fun.
As the Brewing Capital of Atlantic Canada, Fredericton offers a one-of-a-kind biking experience along the Fredericton Taproom Trail, a riverfront course with 11 craft brewery stops each with a unique set of local flavours. Cheers to summer!
Keep your eyes open, because in Fredericton creativity can be found around every corner. With more working artisans per capita than anywhere in Canada, it’s a haven for art lovers. Every block downtown offers a gallery or artisan treasure which compliments the public art trail featuring 30 individual installations. For even more art check out our weekly markets which feature plenty of homemade wares – cultural, culinary, and beyond!
