Fredericton

Overview

Introduction

Located along the banks of the St. John River about 50 mi/80 km northwest of Saint John, Fredericton is the capital of New Brunswick and one of the most beautiful cities in Atlantic Canada.


Well worth the drive is Kings Landing Historical Settlement in Mactaquac Country (22 mi/35 km west), a working historical village that re-creates rural life in English New Brunswick from the 1700s to the early 1900s. The costumed staff members play their roles well: After chatting with a farmer's wife or the local publican for a few minutes, you'll feel like a town resident.

Oromocto Marina in Oromocto's Sir Douglas Hazen Park offers an afternoon of quiet strolling on the pier, and the Village of Gagetown (just 40 minutes away) offers unique arts and crafts found only in the Maritimes. You may also want to try your hand at fly-fishing for salmon on the world-famous (and close-by) Miramichi River.
