Best Things To Do in Saint John, New Brunswick

Saint John's somewhat rough exterior deters some travelers, but those who give this industrialized city a chance will discover that tucked beneath its smoggy skyline is a wealth of historic and cultural sites. For the best introduction to Saint John and New Brunswick, spend some time at the New Brunswick Museum. After this, you can dive deeper into Saint John's history as a British colony by touring sites like the Loyalist House and the Carleton Martello Tower. Just make sure to devote at least a day or two to the region's natural attractions: If you don't mind the drive, you can enjoy spectacular views of the Bay of Fundy from Fundy National Park.
