Kouchibouguac National Park is an unforgettable paradise for nature lovers, swimmers, and hikers. A series of boardwalks - which protect the fragile dunes and grasses of the park - lead to sandy beaches and warm salt water. South along the Acadian Coastal Drive, BOUCTOUCHE can be best described as a place proud of its preserved natural beauty, embraced by its heritage! La Dune de Bouctouche is one of the last remaining great sand dunes on the northeastern coast of North America. Travel South to SHEDIAC, a community of firsts! New Brunswick's first steam sawmill was built here, the first passenger railroad in the Maritimes was located here, and this is where the first shipbuilding firm in New Brunswick started out. And with such a vibrant and rich Acadian culture and heritage, it's also fitting that this is the home of the first World Acadian Congress. Known as The Lobster Capital of the World and the famous Lobster Festival, this is where you'll find The World's Largest Lobster! Parlee Beach in Shediac is the toast of the coast - with a long stretch of sun-drenched sand and tons of summertime fun!
In the heart of Southeast New Brunswick, on the shores of the Petitcodiac River, Greater MONCTON offers more tourist attractions than any other city in New Brunswick. Take your foot off the brake and be amazed as your vehicle rolls uphill at Magnetic Hill. Watch the Tidal Bore as the Bay of Fundy tides cause the Petitcodiac River to empty and fill twice a day. Along the interior Fundy coast, the phenomenal tides have left conspicuous evidence of their power and might: At Hopewell Rocks the tidal currents have carved and sculpted towering statues of red sandstone. Topped by evergreens, they resemble huge flowerpots and stand as one of many Fundy marvels. Further along the Fundy Coastal Drive, just outside the town of Alma, Fundy National Park represents the eco-region known as the Maritime Acadian Highlands. An uncommon Park, Fundy has within its boundaries a nine-hole golf course, tennis courts, a pool, lawnbowling greens, a motel and chalets. Hike a beautiful coastal trail with panoramic views, picnic beside a thundering waterfall, swim in a salt water pool, or walk along a solitary, misty beach, Fundy National Park is one of the most beautiful places anywhere.
