Things to do from the Saint John NB cruise port?

Hello, I will ask the same question about Saint John NB Canada and the other ports of call on our cruise in late Sept 2012. What inexpensive things are there to do in Newport and the following ports we are visiting: Newport RI, Boston MA, Bar Harbor ME, Saint John NB Canada, Halifax NS Canada, Quebec City QC Canada ? We like to walk wherever we can from the ship (if possible) & we prefer to go to parks, nice sandy beaches, or just see sights on foot. Wherever we go at ports, we like to be SAFE and avoid potentially dangerous areas & situations. If we can't get any place by walking, then we could take an inexpensive taxi or bus ride to get to free or inexpensive places of interest. Any suggestions you might have & comments on the individual port is greatly appreciated! Thank You for your help!

Lots of stuff to do in Saint John. In the city itself, you have the City Market and the entire "uptown" area, which has a rich history. It makes for a great afternoon for walking around.Saint John also has the Reversing Falls, which is basically a series of whirlpools in the bay.

However, if you enjoy parks, I would recommend the Irving Nature Park, as it is a series of wooded trails overlooking the Bay of Fundy. It would be a taxi ride from downtown, but taxis are plentiful and cheap in SJ.

Agree with the previous poster, you will have no worries with safety here!
