Why We Love It

Saint John, the only city on the Bay of Fundy shoreline, is shaped by its location on the sea. Known for its cultural heritage, beautiful coastline and outdoor adventure, there are plenty of historic sites, forts, public parks, lighthouses and water activities to explore. As part of the urban redevelopment project, which converted old industrial buildings into modern use, the downtown area is now lined with restaurants, museums, galleries, shops, markets, breweries and entertainment.
