The Canadian Maritimes For Dummies (Part 8): Places to Visit

Places To Visit:

1.      Fundy National Park - this park is one of the most beautiful and breathtaking places in Canada. The Bay of Fundy houses the highest tides in the world and what a sight to see! 
2.     Prince Edward Island - the red dirt, potatoes, Anne of Green Gables, and the beautiful beaches are just a few of the well known and beautiful sights of this unique island in the Maritimes.
3.      Covered Bridges - covered bridges are a historical and fairly common sight, especially in New Brunswick (home to 61 covered bridges). There's even a chip company named after them!
4.      The Tidal Bore - this natural phenomena can be seen in the city of Moncton, NB 
5.      Magnetic Hill - this "gravity hill" is an optical illusion that will have you confused as you go backwards up a hill in neutral. 
6.      The Hopewell Rocks - this world-renown sight has been sculpted by the highest tides in the world.
7.   Halifax Waterfront - walk the waterfront and see the beautiful harbour.
8.   Peggy's Cove - visit the picturesque lighthouse and dip your toes in the water.
9.   St. Martin's Sea Caves - walk the beach and explore the magnificent sea caves.
10. Kouchibouguac National Park - this beautiful park has 25km of sand dunes to appreciate as well as barrier island, salt marshes and much more.
11. The Cabbot Trail - this trail is a scenic roadway that takes you around the beautiful Cape Breton. It is one of the most famous drives in Canada and the sights will not disappoint you!
