Getting away is closer than you think

The Word is Out - New Brunswick is Canada’s ‘Best Kept Secret’

We’ve always been at home with the spectacular. That’s simply what happens when you grow up with endless adventure right in your own backyard. When some of your earliest memories are of day-tripping with family to Canada’s warmest saltwater beaches, or taking a walk on the ocean floor. It’s a side effect of living where lobster is a picnic food and kitchen parties are always a possibility.

No wonder the rest of the world is taking notice. The New York Times has called New Brunswick “one of Canada’s best kept secrets.” The National Post declared it “an unforgettable experience.” And TripAdvisor rates it as “an absolutely must-see place to go.

So why not take some time for play this summer? Explore the Hopewell Rocks…by kayak. Go for a bike ride…down a mountain. Let the ocean-view take your breath away…from a zip-line. A few days’ ‘staycation’ might be the perfect way to relax, recharge, and reconnect with this incredible place we call home.
