One of the main reasons that I've always loved New Brunswick is its beauty. The province is bounded on two sides by ocean, and experiences some of the highest tides in the world on the Bay of Fundy coast. The main watershed, the Saint John River, meanders through the rugged Appalachian mountains; it and its tributaries nurture salmon runs and large forests. In 2011 the river was designated as the Wolastoq National Historic Site of Canada in recognition of the Native American communities that it once sustained.

This caught my eye. Both the vase and apple ornaments were made locally.
One place known for its ambiance is Casey's Diner on Route 105 (or Route 2 depending on who you ask) in Sheffield, east of Fredericton. Not only is the food good, but there's a large selection of local crafts for sale. The back of the establishment houses a tiny antique museum that includes a pristine 1950's Chevrolet convertible and a 1940's farm tractor. And who can forget Harvey's Big Potato Market on the same road in Maugerville with its 15-foot high potato statue? There are so many unique places to explore in New Brunswick.
