What's your favourite place to visit in the province, and why?

My favourite place to visit in New Brunswick changes almost yearly as I explore more and more of the province! Right now one of my favourite places to visit is Cap-Pelé – it has phenomenal sandy beaches and great seafood.

What's something about New Brunswick that you wish the rest of the country knew about?

I think New Brunswick often gets overlooked because it doesn’t have the “obvious” tourist draws like the other Maritime provinces have. You have to do a little bit more work to find our hidden gems, and it’s so worth it. New Brunswick has gorgeous oceanfront camping, hotels, Airbnb’s, sandy beaches like you’d find down south, phenomenal restaurants with top-notch service and fresh, local ingredients. Our local beer scene is amazing and many cities and towns have really cool breweries to visit. We’ve got so much nature here to explore, and everything is such a short drive, you can pack a lot into a short vacation to NB.

What's your favourite "made in New Brunswick" food/drink?

We have the BEST craft beer in New Brunswick out of anywhere I’ve ever been. My top 3 picks would be Trailway’s Hu Jon Hops American IPA, Graystone’s Patagonia Pale Ale and New Maritime’s Centennial Pale Ale.

Is there a part of the province you haven't been to yet, that you'd like to visit? Tell us why!

I’d love to visit up north along the coast – I hear it’s one of those hidden gems I was talking about!
