Welcome to NB O FFI C I A L 2 01 9 N E W BR U N SWICK T RAVEL GU IDE // #EX P LO REN B

I SPEND A COUPLE WEEKS ON SKIFF LAKE, CLOSE TO WOODSTOCK, EVERY SUMMER. I JUST DISCOVERED THIS AREA IN THE LAST FEW YEARS, AND IT’S BECOME THE SPOT MY FAMILY GOES TO TOTALLY CHECK OUT FROM EVERYTHING. IT’S THE ULTIMATE PLACE TO RECHARGE.

What you realize when you start visiting lakes in New Brunswick is just how many hidden gems there are. The people who go there don’t even want to talk about these lakes, so they’ll stay hidden. Sometimes, they’ve known these places in their family for a long time. They’re all around and it’s pretty special.

Photo credit: Mat Dunlap

There’s a huge lake system that goes all the way down to St. Stephen and McAdam, along the eastern and southern edge of New Brunswick. This lake system is so beautiful, and the woods are nice and thick. As I get busier, it’s been really important for us to have that dedicated time. I learned to canoe when I was pretty young because I went to Camp Glenburn. It’s on Belleisle Bay, near the lower Saint John River. I remember being a bit nervous the first time. Some kids grow up sitting between their parents in a canoe, but that wasn’t me. I was never the most agile cat either; I don’t have the best balance. David Myles

PLANNING YOUR TRIP? CALL US 1-800-561-0123 5


When I was about 14, we did a five-night canoe trip as part of that camp experience. We canoed out around the Bay, from one spot to another, and camped for days. It’s quiet, you’re travelling with everything you need, and it makes a deep connection. After that I was just hooked. Now I’m trying to pass that love of lakes on to my kids. There was a day last summer when a bunch of the friends I grew up with in Fredericton came out to the cottage we rent. There were a dozen kids all swimming in the lake. It was a dream come true. It sounds cheesy, but it was so cool to see all of these kids just loving it: being in the water all day, swimming around, looking at rocks, and having so much fun. It took me back. I’ll tell you, the southern bit of the Saint John River Valley is a place that very few people know about, besides people who live in New Brunswick. Like everything else in New Brunswick, we don’t brag about it that much, but we certainly should. DAVID MYLES

PROFILE

Market Fresh

Chef Chris Aerni takes “locally sourced ingredients” seriously. How much so? He bought the Rossmount Inn to be closer to his favourite market… the Bay of Fundy.

Why does that Fundy lobster taste so fresh? Because it is. Caught and landed maybe five minutes from the restaurant you’re in. Welcome to the Rossmount Inn. This legendary dining destination sits on 35 hectares (87 acres) of rolling landscape that shoulders the resort town of Saint Andrews. This is the playground of Chef Chris Aerni. It’s here that he has created an experience that’s an homage to the local bounty and those who have proudly produced it for generations. Any meal at the Rossmount Inn will literally give you a true taste of the region. The catch of the day comes straight from the pier. The Inn has its own chef’s garden where certified organic produce is waiting for its role in a recipe that’s sure to make a star appearance on your social media feeds. And as if you’d needed a reason to come back, there’s the always-changing menu that embraces seasonal New Brunswick delicacies such as fiddleheads and chanterelles. rossmountinn.com

river runs from the Appalachian Mountains to the Gulf of St. Lawrence. From Push and Be Damned Rapids to Turnip Patch, each bend in this famous river sports an original name. Best for: Fly-fishing for Atlantic salmon with a professional guide.

Love the idea of paddling but currently only rock the doggy-paddle? Don’t worry – we’re here to help. This step-by-step guide will have you canoeing down the river like a pro in no time.

Saint John River: At 637 kilometres (418 miles),

1: Safety first: Always use a personal floatation device. You’ll also want to be a competent swimmer and learn all the information you can about the area you plan to canoe in.

5: Move the paddle forward out of the water then plant it in the water so that the paddle’s blade is submerged. Reach as far ahead as you can without moving from your seat or leaning too far forward.

Houseboat Vacations.

2: When you first climb into a canoe, balancing can be difficult, so stay as low as possible. You can sit or kneel at the bottom of the canoe until you feel stable.

6: Pull the paddle back towards you, turning the paddle blade perpendicular to the canoe and direction of travel. Try to keep the paddle close to the boat as you make your stroke as wider strokes could make you turn inadvertently.

3: If you’re paddling alone, sit in the back with your gear in the front of the canoe. If you don’t have much stuff, you might find it easier to balance sitting in the centre of the canoe. 4: Grip the paddle with one hand on top and the other a few feet down in a spot that’s comfortable for you. Turn your hand so your lower palm is facing the canoe.

7: Stop the stroke when the blade reaches your hip. Bring the blade up and out of the water and begin the next stroke. Switch the side you paddle on every few strokes to keep the canoe going straight and enjoy the ride!

the province’s longest river is also a heritage river that forms part of the Canada-USA border twice. Best for: Sleeping on the water with Lakeway

Nepisiguit River: This river flows from mountains to sea, winding from Mount Carleton Provincial Park to Chaleur Bay. Best for: Taking a river expedition with Nepisiguit Adventures

Restigouche River: This pristine fishing river starts in the Appalachian Mountains and empties into Chaleur Bay 200 kilometres (120 miles) later. Best for: Park your RV at Campbellton RV Camping to fall asleep to the song of the river.

Tobique River: Pronounced Toe-Bick, this river flows from Mount Carleton Provincial Park through small towns and villages. Best for: Floating alongside playing musicians at the annual Fiddles on the Tobique music festival.

Sussex

PROUDLY RURAL… QUAINTLY CHARMING… As the highway winds through the wide open spaces of southern New Brunswick, the lush green landscape surrounding the Town of Sussex, dotted with historic homes, will awaken nostalgic memories. A picture-perfect small rural community – where doors are open to strangers and hospitality is second nature. In this Covered Bridge Capital of Atlantic Canada (there are eight “kissing bridges” within 10 minutes of the Town Hall) you’ll soon realize that farming is more than an occupation, it’s the very fabric of life. The Agriculture Museum of New Brunswick chronicles the town’s close connection to the land, a tradition which is celebrated each year at the Kings County Agricultural Fair during the fourth week of August which is one of the oldest agricultural fairs in North America.

EXPERIENCE SMALL-TOWN CHARM: • MURAL CAPITAL OF ATLANTIC CANADA www.sussexmurals.com • THE ATLANTIC INTERNATIONAL BALLOON FIESTA (WEEKEND AFTER LABOUR DAY) • SUSSEX FLEA MARKET (3RD WEEKEND IN AUGUST) • THE PRINCESS LOUISE PARK SHOW CENTRE: EQUESTRIAN EVENTS • POLEY MOUNTAIN www.poleymountain.com • SUSSEX GOLF & CURLING CLUB sussexgolfandcurlingclub.ca

In downtown Sussex, a stroll down Broad and Main streets will take you to unique shops and wonderful restaurants that offer that hometown service… stop at the historic Sussex Train Station, which now houses the town’s Visitor Information Centre and the 8th Hussars Regimental Museum. Continue walking and see 22 larger-thanlife murals. This one-of-a-kind “outdoor art gallery” is a tribute to our rich local history that can be enjoyed by visitors and residents alike. No matter how you spend your time in Sussex, one thing’s for sure, you’ll leave with the knowledge that, in some places, contentment can still be found in the simplest of pleasures.

Family Fun

There’s a day of family fun waiting for you at Magnetic Hill Park and Magic Mountain.

Slap on your swimsuit (and sunscreen) and visit Magic Mountain, Atlantic Canada’s largest waterpark. When your fingers look like raisins, hit the arcade, challenge your family to mini golf, or swing away on amusement rides.

With animals from the Americas, Africa and Asia, and events like Boo at the Zoo and Wild Lights, there’s always something to do at the Zoo.

Next, spend the afternoon at Magnetic Hill Zoo. Atlantic Canada’s leading Zoo offers experiences that inspire a connection to animals from around the world. Don’t miss the award-winning Amur tigers exhibit and the new Wolf Walk experience opening this summer. When it’s time to wind down, Magnetic Hill Wharf Village features a cosy collection of colourful Maritime-style buildings hosting shops and snacks.

MEET THE KEEPER PRESENTATIONS Follow the Zoo on Facebook to learn more about how they care for animals and how to protect the animals in the wild. Plus learn more about "Behind the scenes" tours.  ZOODEMAGNETICHILLZOO

World Famous Wonder Put your car in neutral at the bottom of Magnetic Hill and be wowed as it rolls back uphill. Weird, right? To solve the mystery, visit our new interpretation exhibit this summer.

ACADIAN FOOTPRINTS

The culture of the Fundy area is as rich as the tides. There’s a big Acadian connection here too. Their odyssey unfolds at places like Fort Beauséjour – Fort Cumberland and Monument-Lefebvre National Historic Sites. Here, you can trace the arrival of the Acadians and their expulsion by the British, and the Acadian Renaissance that bloomed after. In Memramcook, the hard work of these first Acadian settlers is still visible in the dykes that made the surrounding marshlands farmable.

Acadian culture is as vibrant and visible as the bright Acadian flags you’ll see flying throughout the province, especially here. The blue, white, and red of the flag represent the Acadian connection to France while the star represents the Virgin Mary, patron saint of mariners and fishermen. Family names like Arsenault, Cormier, and LeBlanc, painted in Acadian colours, decorate many a mailbox. Spot the gold Acadian star, Stella Maris, above doors, windows, and on roof peaks.

TRÈS COOL TRIP Warm, sandy beaches, windswept islands, succulent seafood, and the vibrant joie de vivre of Acadian culture are just some of the things waiting for you along this coast. Relaxation is guaranteed along stretches of beach with the warmest salt water in Canada. Pair that with a little cultural immersion and you’ll soon find yourself enjoying hearty Acadian dishes, sampling craft drinks, and singing along at a kitchen party or two. The hospitality you’ll find here will make you feel so at home, you’ll never want your vacation to end. Bouctouche

YOUR MINI GUIDE TO CHIAC While visiting Acadie, there’s a good chance you’ll hear Chiac. This uniquely local dialect, pronounced SHEE-ack, is a blend of rapid French and English spoken by people fluent in both Acadian French and Canadian English. Listen for it in active, social spaces like restaurants, beaches, and markets. Here are some classic Chiac phrases to keep in your back pocket: WORRY PAS TA BRAIN. Don’t worry about it. HALLE TA FRAME. Hurry up. BAILLE-Y ÇA. Go for it. QUOSSE TU PARLES ABOUT? What are you talking about? CHECK ÇA OUT PIS CALL-MOI BACK. Check this out and call me back. DÉCOLLER SUR LA BROSSE.

SOMETHING

SWEET

Who can resist the melt-inyour-mouth deliciousness of maple? New Brunswick is one of the world’s top producers of maple syrup. Polish up that sweet tooth and prepare to get sticky. mapleliciousnb.com

➜ WHY VISIT MOUNT

➜ WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE

CARLETON PROVINCIAL PARK? People aren’t used to getting out into the wilderness anymore. If you camp for a few days at the campground, you’re close to lakes and gravel beaches. You can swim there with kids and look over at Mount Sagamook’s rocky outcrops. There’s nothing better than the feeling of wilderness. Alternately, you can hike Mount Carleton in a half day.

ROUTE AT SUGARLOAF PROVINCIAL PARK? If you hike back in the woods, you’ll hit Prichard Lake. There’s a lot of history there. It used to be a go-to spot for trout fishing. There was a homestead on the lake, but all that’s left there now is a gravesite for the Prichard family. It’s a beautiful, long lake with lots to explore.

➜ WHAT’S YOUR MOST

NOVICE HIKERS? Get a feel for what you’re going to need before you start hiking. Bring enough water and snacks, because you’re going to be far from a store. Know how long your hike will take and keep an eye on the weather.

UNDERRATED HIKING SPOT? If you go up through to Campbellton in the Sugarloaf Mountain area, you’re overlooking the whole river valley and even Quebec. It’s a quick, strenuous climb with a spectacular view.

➜ WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE FOR

Visit HikingNB.ca to find descriptions, distances, and estimated hiking times for 450 trails across the province.

MAPLELICIOUS FACTS: CHECK New Brunswick is the 3rd largest maple syrup producer in the world. CHECK New Brunswick produces about 1.8 million kilograms of maple syrup per year. CHECK Maple syrup will keep for years if stored unopened.

OLD TRAIN STATION TOURIST CENTRE: This replica 1920s train station houses the visitor information centre, a Forestry, Agriculture and Maple Industry Interpretation Centre, and a gallery. ➜ Get the details on page 202.

A city rich in history, Campbellton was the site of 16th- and 17th-century French missions and Scottish trading posts before dispossessed Acadians settled here in 1757. Most left when the English defeated the French in the 1760 naval Battle of Restigouche. What remains is a unique blend of cultures in the city, including Mi’gmaq, Acadian, Scottish, French, and English.
