Destination guide

Out with the old and in with New Brunswick

As one of eastern Canada's Maritime provinces, New Brunswick is known for its beautiful scenery and diverse landscape. Whether it's the picturesque Bay of Fundy or the sea caves and formations at St. Martins, you'll find a dazzling new spectacle in every corner of this charming place. You may consider booking a cabin in the woods or a charming cottage by the bay, but no matter which New Brunswick vacation rentals catch your eye, you'll spend every moment until your trip daydreaming about the stunning sights to be seen on Canada's Atlantic coast.

Things to do

A veritable smorgasbord of charming villages

Pay a visit to St. Johns' New Brunswick Museum, highlighting local works from the 1800s. History buffs will enjoy a tour of Franklin D. Roosevelt's summer home, situated on Campobello Island, across the bridge from Lubec, Maine. Many of the small Acadian villages, such as St. Andrews by-the-Sea, are well worth your time, each with their own local history, small museums, and galleries celebrating regional artists. There are a few small zoos in New Brunswick perfect for the kids, including the Cherry Brook Zoo outside of St. John and the Magnetic Hill Zoo in Moncton.


Just follow your nose to New Brunswick's market stalls

A visit to the port city of St. John is a must, mainly to stroll the long-standing St. John City Market's food stalls. If you'd rather source your own food, salmon fishing on the Miramichi River is a long beloved pastime in the area. Alternatively, rent a canoe or kayak to explore the local rivers and coastal islands, ideal if you'd like a more leisurely approach. If you prefer to hang with the locals, consider touring the quaint Acadian villages that dot the countryside, stopping for locally made meals and souvenirs along the way.


Four vibrant seasons—each one worth your time

When browsing New Brunswick vacation rentals, consider what you'd like to do. St Andrews By-The-Sea is prime for whalewatching in July and August, but many others have the same idea, sending prices and crowds soaring. September and October quiet down, but the trees come alive with vibrant colors as the weather begins to cool. Come November, a blanket of snow will bring the cross-country skiers to Fundy National Park and downhill skiers to the slopes, and they'll stick around until March. Spring, like fall, is on the slow side, thanks to chilly temps and a quieter local vibe.

Natural features

Flip it and reverse it at New Brunswick's Reversing Falls

New Brunswick boasts raging rivers, lush pine forests, and tree-topped mountains. A visit to the Bay of Fundy is a must, thanks to its world-famous whale watching and extreme tides. Most notable are the Reversing Falls, where rapids flow backwards at high tide. The legendary Miramichi River is another must-see, known for hosting one of the largest salmon populations in North America. Canoes or kayaks are perfect for exploring some of the small, uninhabited islands that dot the rivers and coastline, and in winter, enjoy the snow capped mountains up close or from afar.
