Top 10 Romantic Attractions in New Brunswick, Canada for Couples


Thinking about visiting New Brunswick? Couples can find an abundance of romantic attractions in Canada’s only official bi-lingual province. Air and sea, English and French cultures mingle amiably in New Brunswick, which is 577 miles from NYC and 340 miles from Montreal.

Its Bay of Fundy, along the southern coast, is a feeding ground for whales and migratory birds and has the highest tides in the world. Every 6+ hours the tides change dramatically, revealing or concealing the ocean floor.

1. Take the Train

Start a romantic journey to New Brunswick by taking the overnight train (sleeper car, of course) west from Montreal to this Maritime province.

2. Check into the Algonquin Resort

This "castle-by-the-sea" has been welcoming honeymooners and other romantics to New Brunswick since 1889.

3. Explore St. Andrews-by-the-Sea

This easy-going seaside New Brunswick town by the Bay of Fundy is a scenic place for romantics to stroll. Take a look.

4. Stop and Smell the Flowers at Kingsbrae Garden

Considered one of Canada's top ten public gardens, Kingsbrae Garden has a variety of romantic settings for weddings, picnics, or simply stealing a kiss.

5. Dine at Kingsbrae Arms

The top-rated inn in New Brunswick, Kingsbrae Arms is a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateau group. Its ten rooms are exquisite, and meals are truly gourmet.

6. Go Kayaking or Whale Watching

The outdoors is one of the major attractions in New Brunswick for romantics. Down by the wharf in St. Andrews, couples can sign up for a morning of easy kayaking or a whale-watching trip that sails into the Bay of Fundy.

7. Tour the Quoddy Loop

The romantic Quoddy Loop on the western arm of the Bay of Fundy spans Maine and New Brunswick. Attractions along the way include FDR's Campobello home, ferry rides, the Chocolate Museum, and more.

8. Hike a Trail at Campobello

After touring FDR's summer home at Campobello, romantics can follow trails that wind though the waterfront property.

9. Devour a Lobster Roll on Deer Island

I can't say that the 45th Parallel Restaurant serves the best lobster roll in New Brunswick — I haven't tasted them all. But this one is the best I've consumed to date.

10. Kiss by the Waterfall in St. George

New Brunswick has more than its share of waterfalls, an attraction that often inspires romantics to kiss. And the province's 75 covered bridges provide additional spots for lovers to linger.
