What should I pack for a trip to New Brunswick?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

As one of the most picturesque provinces in Canada, New Brunswick has plenty to see and do — but it requires just a few vital things on your packing list. Here’s what you shouldn’t go without:

1. Camera. You’ll want to capture those scenic moments. Whether it’s of a whale tail during a boat tour or a covered bridge you cross during a drive, the photo ops are endless. And though your camera on your cell phone will work, you’ll want to blow these pictures up so you can admire the brilliant colors present throughout New Brunswick.

2. Layers. As a Maritime Province, days can be extremely warm, while the nights dip down into sweater weather. It’s always a safe bet to bring layers no matter what your plans are. Remember, out on the bay, it can get pretty chilly even if it’s hot on land.

3. Swimsuit. During the summer, New Brunswick has the warmest saltwater north of Virginia. Translation: great swimming. With tons of beaches scattered along the coast, yo’ll find it hard to believe that you are so far north.
