Officially bilingual, New Brunswick is the home to a large French community. Famous for the unique roadside vegetable stands and beaches, this tiny Canadian province has something to offer to every visitor.
What to do
New Brunswick is the perfect Canadian province to visit if you plan to explore the nature. Make sure to check Old Sow, the largest tidal whirlpool in the western hemisphere. Also, you can hike on Mount Carleton, hike and watch the Reversing Falls or explore the Hopewell Rocks.
Kings Landing Historical Settlement is worth your visit and you can also drop by during the Fiddles on the Tobique, an annual festival featuring canoeing down the beautiful river.
Plenty of national parks feature lovely campgrounds and trails for you to explore. Kouchibouguac National Park has some lovely beaches to check out.
