Saint John (for the Bay of Fundy), Canada

Boasting unspoiled natural beauty and a spectacular coastline, New Brunswick's pristine shores await you. The capital of Saint John is Canada's oldest settlement and was a thriving industrial port until it was leveled by fire in 1877, but redevelopment of the Old City Market and Heritage Area has restored the town's charm and its sense of history. Saint John lies on the Bay of Fundy, which boasts the highest tides in the world and the astonishing Reversing Rapids, caused when the tides change and the river is forced to reverse direction and flow upstream. Witness this natural phenomenon along with heritage sites on a guided trolley ride and zip-line adventure, or cruise the Bay of Fundy for different views of the area's spectacular natural beauty. Discover the inspired eateries that have put uptown Saint John on the map as a true foodie destination and venture on to the quaint seaside town of St. Andrews by-the-Sea and St. Martins for a relaxed stroll.
