"St. Andrews by the Sea" Saint Andrews by 850prc
Saint Andrews Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 38 photos
St Andrews by the Sea, some 30 km southeast of St Stephen and just abeam Passamaquoddy Bay, is a longtime resort town. Settled in part by Crown loyalists who left the USA after the British withdrew, St Andrews has long been a sanctuary for affluent, well-heeled residents and visitors. This is the kind of place that doesn't have a "poor side" of town. The poor side would be more accurately described as the "least wealthy". :)
Although very popular with visitors, St Andrews is still a quiet and reserved place. Home to many shops, galleries and B&Bs, it also boasts one of Atlantic Canada's most famous hotels - the venerable Fairmont Algonquin.
St Andrews is steeped in history and historical buildings. The main town plat of St. Andrews has been designated a National Historic District and many of the more than 250 homes have been marked with descriptive plaques by the St. Andrews Civic Trust.
