An ideal stop-off for families and adrenaline junkies visiting New Brunswick, Moncton is renowned as Atlantic Canada’s ‘Entertainment Capital’! Also nicknamed the ‘most polite city in Canada’, visitors to Moncton can expect a very warm welcome.
The city is encompassed by the UNESCO Fundy Biosphere Reserve, making it an ideal destination for nature lovers, and its position to many of the province’s main attractions make it a great base for your stay in New Brunswick.
Witnessing the Tidal Bore surge through the Bay of Fundy and a tour of the Magnetic Hill Winery should be on your ‘to-do’ list, and for families there is the Magnetic Hill Zoo and the seriously wild waterpark Magic Mountain. Festivals and events are listed on an exciting calendar of Moncton events each year, with highlights including the Riverview Annual Maple Syrup Festival. Thrill seekers will love TreeGo Moncton – an aerial adventure through the trees, as well as the skydiving opportunities close to the city.
Alongside all these wonders there are two travel experiences you absolutely mustn’t miss during your stay in Moncton. Firstly, a tour of Hopewell Rocks and the Bay of Fundy; home to the world’s highest tides, spectacular world heritage sites, dramatic coastal scenery and fascinating flora and fauna. Secondly there’s the intriguing Magnetic Hill, one of Canada’s most famous tourist attractions; a life-size optical illusion that defies natural law!
