Visting Shediac and Moncton

Welcome to the southeastern region of New Brunswick, the only officially bilingual province in Canada!
If you are coming from out of town to have your QHHT® session, you may want to take in some of the cool things to see and do, and plan a small getaway.

 

Shediac, Lobster Capital of the World!

The population (7,000) of this small seaside town more than triples in the summer.

Parlee Beach Provincial Park boasts the warmest waters north of Virginia, and attracts cottages owners
and tourists from around the region, Canada, the U.S. and beyond. Shediac hosts an annual lobster festival and many events, including a weekly outdoor farmer’s market every Sunday during the busy tourist season.

Moncton, “Hub” of the Maritimes and gateway to the Bay of Fundy

With a population of 145,000, the Greater Moncton area is an important commercial centre. The Magnetic Hill Concert site and the new downtown event venue Centre Avenir attract local, national and international headliners (including U2, The Rolling Stones, Bryan Adams, and many more!)

Moncton is also one of the gateways to the Bay of Fundy and its impressive tides, the highest in the world! There are so many amazing places to visit: Hopewell Rocks, Fundy National Park, Cape Enrage, etc. Walking or cycling along Riverfront Park is a great place to see the Tidal Bore pushing against the current of the Petitcodiac River. Be sure to check the tide schedule, you might even see a surfer or two riding the impressive wave. (But …  maybe not in the middle of January.)
