    The main part of this park is a beautiful peninsula that extends out into the Bay of Fundy, not too far from downtown St Johns, New Brunswick. There is a 6.5km (4miles) oneway gravel road that loops around the peninsula. On the outside of the loop are trails that are sometimes near the road, then drop down to coves and climb out to scenic overlooks. There are different animal names for the various trails, and we particularly liked the Heron trail. There are also the Seal and Deer trails in the interior part of the park, but we did not venture there. There are numerous places to pull over and park, and there are at least three outhouse type restroom facilities throughout the park. Approximately 3/4 of the way around the loop, there are free gas barbecue grills for visitors to use with picnic tables.

    Awesome and informative tour by Diana. She was so pleasant, funny, entertaining and really explained all the facts. Great beer too. Loved the new mango cranberry raddler.

    Efficient check-in, comfy boat with strong Wi-Fi.
    We crossed from Digby to St John. Surprised that there were no facilities at all at Digby.
    It was cold and misty outside, even colder inside with fierce aircon.
    The ship was showing its age, very rusty in parts, but as there’s apparently just one vessel going backwards and forwards on the route, not sure what they can do about it. The photos they put up on here must be years old.
    Some musical entertainment on the ship passed the time.

    Before leaving Saint John, my husband and I stopped to view the reversing falls, which is where the Saint John River and Bay of Fundy meet. The water appears to flow in two different directions and creates a small whirlpool. It's quite neat to see and changes based on the tides.

    Good park but I accidentally got bitten by a lobster that was very big and it really hurt but I took a picture so the police can take further action into preventing any more crimes from that lobster. The lobster is hopefully being prisonned shortly. 5 stars. Don’t wear sandals here the workers might cry.

    This museum is so cool that I might die soon. I am not usually very amused by museums. I have visited over 309 on my expeditions around the world. This one is by far the worst. The best exhibits you could imagine but the worst smell ever. I had to take more than one shower when I got to my hotel. Bring gas masks if you don’t want to die of smell.

    We enjoyed the tour led by 2 docents who showed us the 2 floors of this house that had been in the same family for 5 generations. The docents were welcoming and provided a lot of information about the house and items in it. There were so many lovely and interesting pieces. 1 of the docents told us about another couple of buildings in the area with interesting architecture and we checked those out afterwards. Very nice recommendations.

    The Imperial Theatre is one of my favourite places in the city. They put on great shows there, I've always been satisfied with the performances. Seats are very comfortable, and there is a good view of the stage from most seats. I enjoy sitting on the sides of the balcony, but the edges of the stage do get in the way when trying to watch the show. Dressing rooms are nice, wide variety of teas in the green room. Snacks at the bar are a bit overpriced, which is a little annoying. Overall a great place to watch a show.

    Walked through a couple of times and drove round it even more. Statues abound but most impressive is the old bandstand in the middle.

    This is well worth a visit, though currently the tower itself is closed. Interesting history which is presented well in the visitor centre.
    If the fog isn't in, some great views too

    This Victorian Gothic church is magnificent. I only wished I could have gone inside to see the interior, but as everyone knows, churches are no longer open to the public except on Sundays and special events. (In Europe, most of the well-known cathedrals and churches are open for viewing). Interesting fact: The bell tower and steeple is 210 feet tall and topped by a 6-ft long wood gilt fish weathervane. The fish was an early symbol for Christianity (and not a symbol of fishing in Saint John, which is what most people would probably think).
