Edition 4: June 22, 2001
In our fourth issue, the Bed and Breakfast Traveller takes you to the great variety of New Brunswick: from whale watching, to Acadian cuisine, to the glorious beaches along the Bay of Fundy, there are a multitude of reasons to make this province a summer holiday destination.
With its astounding natural phenomena, great day adventures, festivals, folklore and fresh, scrumptious food from lobster, salmon, scallops, oysters to fricot and pets-de-soeur, "variety" is definitely the way to describe New Brunswick. As Canada's only offically bilingual province enjoy a welcome in both official languages and experience the variety of founding cultures. And there are
Canada Select rated Bed & Breakfasts in every corner of the province. .
Be sure to stop at the Visitor Information Centre as you enter the Province. Here you'll find experts who'll provide you with details and assist with any reservations.
Just choose from the many experiences and adventures.
Low tide, the Hopewell Rocks
In New Brunswick you can explore one of the last remaining great sand dunes on the northeastern coast of North America, climb the highest peak in the Maritimes,
cross the world's longest covered bridge, experience the world's highest tides, relax in the warmest salt-water north of Virginia, fish in well-stocked trout ponds,
prepare your own lobster, golf scenic and challenging courses, learn to scuba dive in a clear spring-filled lake, sail a grand gorge, witness whales surging, kayak past
sea caves, clap to toe-tapping jigs and reels, appreciate baroque music, tour award-winning gardens, immerse yourself in history: tour a beach strewn with
pre-historic fossils, dine and dance at historical villages; view notable works of art and savour the flavours of the fresh food. And return at the end of the day to the
warm welcome and relaxing comfort of your B&B.
