"Fredericton and New Brunswick" Top 5 Page for this destination Fredericton by Bwana_Brown

Fredericton Travel Guide: 224 reviews and 329 photos

Fredericton is the capital of the province of New Brunswick, Canada and is located in the Maritime Provinces (NB, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island) on the Atlantic Coast. It is interesting to note that, when all the contributors and photographers to the National Geographic Magazine were polled 3 years ago for their estimation of the top 50 "must see" things/places to experience based on their World travels, Canada ended up with two "winners". One was to see the Rocky Mountains and the second was to visit the Maritime Provinces to experience the relaxed pace of life, combined with rustic scenery of your choice. A combination of seashores, forests and pastoral farm lands provides a wide variety of visual experiences. This, along with the friendly nature of the inhabitants and the reasonable cost of amenities makes this location a great place in which to spend some time!

    Nice page Glenn. I guess it would have been wonderful growing up in this outdoors enviroment. Perhaps not in winter. Did you shovel the snow off your driveway as a youngster?

    Interesting that this quiet and unassuming place has the world's longest and highest of anything (covered bridge and tides). And the last totally undeveloped section of Atlantic coastline north of Florida.

    Glenn, it looks like you live in a real Canadian gem. Interesting info and fabulous photos. I didn't know about the world's highest tides. Well done ... :-)

    Thank you for your kind words about my Quito page. I can't believe I've been somewhere you haven't. I admired your hometown page. It's so hard to remember what's interesting about one's hometown (I've added sport travel tips to mine today).
