A Quiet Escape

I've taken two trips to Grand Manan - a place you're not likely to find on your own - and I will definitely go back again. You won't find any of the normal "touristy" things to do here; no kitschy shops, no all-inclusive resorts.

What you will find here is a rugged natural beauty in the landscape and ocean. You'll find birds and seals and whales. Hiking trails ring the island - which is only about 16 miles long and around 5 miles wide. Grand Manan is the place to go to decompress, to read a book in an adirondack chair while the seagulls chatter overhead.

I can't recommend this small, out-of-the-way island enough!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet, beautiful, rugged, natural, unspoiled.
  • Cons:None - unless you are looking for exciting nightlife.
  • In a nutshell:Relax in unspoiled natural beauty.
