Reversing Falls#2 in Best Things To Do in Saint John, New Brunswick
According to previous Saint John visitors, this natural phenomenon is sure to wow you. Sitting just west of downtown Saint John, the Reversing Falls is a rocky gorge overlooking gurgling whirlpools, impressive rapids and several small waterfalls. Here's what makes this natural site such an anomaly: The whirlpools, rapids and waterfalls flow one way with the incoming tide and another with the outgoing tide. According to one TripAdvisor user, "It was impressive to see the water churning as the tide changes and the dramatic tidal difference was awesome!"
There are several ways to experience the Reversing Falls. You can watch the churning water from one either Fallsview Park or Reversing Falls Park, or you can observe from above on the rooftop viewing platform (all of these options are free). If you want to get up close and personal, many previous visitors recommend challenging gravity on a zip line tour: Saint John Adventures features a network of five zip lines across the falls. According to one TripAdvisor user, "This is a great zip line to start with if you have never done it before because it is not too high or too long." Tours cost $60 CAD ($60 USD) for adults and $50 CAD ($50 USD) for children and seniors.

#1 Saint John City Market
Sitting at Market Square in downtown Saint John, the Saint John City Market has been in operation since the late 1700s, making it the oldest continuing farmer's market in Canada. But before you become too engrossed in the many mouthwatering offerings at the vendors' tables, make sure to cast your glance upward. The ceiling of this massive 19th-century building (the original market was held outside) resembles the upturned hull of a ship -- a tribute to the city's shipping industry.
