Being a Maritime Province, New Brunswick offers beautiful scenery overflowing with romantic activities throughout the year. It’s the largest of Canada’s three Maritime Provinces, so the options are endless. Here’s our list of the five best things to do on a romantic trip to New Brunswick:
Whale Watching. Venture out into the Bay of Fundy and experience the best whale watching on the East Coast. In the Fundy Coastal Drive region of the province, you’ll find plenty of tour companies that will provide you with a trip of a lifetime.
Kingsbrae Garden. Stroll the 27 acres of beautiful walking trails through the gardens hand-in-hand. You’ll pass by more than 50,000 flowers, shrubs and other plants. Let your senses revel in the romantic scents through the themed gardens. They’re only open May through October, but if you happen to be in town then, they’re worth the trip.
Ministers Island. Grab a tour guide and set out from St. Andrews during low tide for an unbelievable drive on the ocean floor. Once you arrive at the island, visit the historic summer home of Sir William Van Horne, the man behind the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway that unified the country coast to coast.
Dinner at Kingsbrae Arms. Though it’s only open for the summer, which is the case for much of this region, dinner at this coastal paradise is one to remember. Concentrating on fresh ingredients from local farms and fisheries, the menu is pleasing to the eye and stomach. It doesn’t get much more romantic than a cozy dinner overlooking the Passamaquoddy Bay.
Explore the Covered Bridges. New Brunswick is spotted with 60 covered bridges that bring you back to the days of yore. With the region’s stunning scenery, just about every one of these bridges is a romantic sight. We love the Canal Covered Bridge near St. George.
