Saint John, also known as Saint Awesome, is a jewel of an urban vacation destination hiding in plain sight right here in New Brunswick. Nowhere else can you find globally ranked culinary stars, mind-blowing reversing rapids, the provincial museum, the oldest continuing farmers’ market in Canada, and the wonder of the Bay of Fundy right at its front door.

Sounds like enough – but there’s more. It’s also a photographer’s dream from its headline-making public art installations to turn-of-the-century architecture and Carleton Martello Tower, along with a Saint John city sign that’s the backdrop for one of NB’s top selfie spots.

 

 

Saint John is the perfect home base for all your Bay of Fundy day trips to St. Martins, the Irving Nature Park, or New River Beach. It’s also a gateway to the marvels of the Fundy Trail Parkway.
