Celebrate in Our Cities

We may be known for our natural beauty, parks and beaches, but a visit to the bustling cities found across the province is a must for anyone vacationing in New Brunswick. 

No two cities are alike, so discovering something new in each one is a given – especially since we’re celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday in a big way throughout 2017. Road trip your way from top-notch music events, restaurants and retail therapy to live street performances and fascinating galleries. 

Shop for French-inspired goods in Moncton and Dieppe or watch world-class performances at Casino New Brunswick and Capitol Theatre. Family vacations in these cities are a blast thanks to Magnetic Hill Zoo and Magic Mountain Water Park. 

Our provincial capital, Fredericton, is best known for the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, the Historic Garrison District and activities along the Saint John River, which flows through the city. Culinary delights await at the City Market in the port city of Saint John, while history and culture meet at the New Brunswick Museum and the Saint John Arts Centre.

Peter Stoddard
Purveyor of Fine Ales and Fun

The Saint John Ale House celebrates our rich history but also brings some trendy fun foods and beers to the forefront of what’s happening in Uptown Saint John. I used to come down here as a kid and I love being able to rejuvenate the area.

Celebrating the Uptown

Peter Stoddard has a unique gift – he’s been able to take all things New Brunswick, the history, the fresh from the farm ingredients, locally brewed beer and the need to celebrate to create the Saint John Ale House. Since he opened in 2004, there’s been steady growth in Uptown Saint John.
