Worth the time to stop and take in a few km! Leave time to walk the suspension bridge. Walk as little or as far as you want. Lots of places to drive and check out the view if you aren’t up to hiking that day....More

A very beautiful drive with great stops along the way in which to view the flowerpots and waterfalls. The interpretive centre and Big Salmon River walk were great.

Hello, Not yet. They should be connected to Sussex by 2019, and Moncton by 2021. The park authority had completed it to the edge of their land, they are waiting for the Province to complete the necessary road connections.

Just returned from a short vacation in beautiful NB/NS. The country/province is simply spectacular and I would highly recommend this for a ‘get away from it all’ feeling! Day-1: Drove from the Boston area to Saint Martins in NB (around 7.5 hours with breaks). Make sure to cross the Canadian border at the new crossing in Calais (nice place with zero wait time; once in Canada, you are already on highway 101). Stayed at the Salmon River B&B – good, comfortable place on the Bay of Fundy;...More

Bay of fundy is quite cold. I grew up very close to the bay of fundy and visit often and I've only ever seen people go in up to their knees, and the occasional dog swimming. One exception is tidal bore rafting as it's done on a river that the bay of fundy pushes into and the river water is warmer. The beaches by shediac will be much warmer.
