These impressive falls 140 miles/225 km northwest of Fredericton are a very popular destination and can be reached by taking the River Valley Scenic Drive west and north from Fredericton. (The falls are the most scenic part of the river drive, in our opinion.)
The Grand Falls gush through a 1-mi-/1.6-km-long gorge, plunging some 70 ft/20 m. Even in midsummer, when water levels are low, the scenic lookouts provide dramatic views of the gorge. Be sure to visit the Malabeam Interpretative Centre at the falls, then take time to walk Broadway, the main street of Grand Falls. It's lined with lively businesses and divided by a manicured park.
Plan to visit the Farmer's Market and the Grand Falls Historic Museum in the Community Cultural Centre. If you're in the area in late June or early July, don't miss the Potato Festival, which takes place at the same time as the Canada Day Weekend festivities at the beginning of July.
