    I wanted to go from St. John New Brunswick to Halifax Nova Scotia for work. My two options were driving there or take the ferry. I’m so happy I opted for the ferry. The total time if travel was the same (car vs ferry) I mean I didn’t get there faster but I got to save some driving time and instead I enjoyed an amazing ferry ride. I drove there and got on the ferry with my car. When I went upstairs I was blown away by how cozy and beautiful it was. The ferry itself is clean, comfortable, the bathrooms are very clean, there was a restaurant and there’s free Wi-Fi on board. Everyone I crossed was extremely nice and helpful. I enjoyed the views and got some work done. I highly recommend it to everyone. I am certain I will be taking this ferry again in the near future.

    You have to make several trips to the Falls in order to get the feel of what happens. During low tide, the river runs over the falls into the Bay of Fundy at a very rapid rate. During times of high tide, the Bay of Fundy reverses the flow of the river at such a rate that salt water can be detected 90 kilometers up river.

    I’m a local, having worked at the brewery previously but never visited as a tourist so when my friends came to visit from Germany, we decided to do the tour! Greg was a great tour guide and had lots of knowledge to share and John in the Small Batch was lovely! Definitely recommend for anyone visiting.

    My husband had read up on this market so it was one of our points of interest while we were in town , though lots of vendors are not around , maybe due to Covid, still some cute places to visit , we bought some really nice soup to eat , a bit cold outside, and found a nice place selling English food and drinks bought those for my daughter who lives here , all and all enjoyable visit

    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.

    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 mall, close to the cruise ship dock, is an interesting mix of retail (clothing and a wonderful leather bag store) and community (the local library and museum... with gift shop). A food court, pub, and Tim Horton’s make this an all encompassing stop for any walking tour of the St. John harbor.

    This is across the street from the city market. We walked around a bit, but it was a cold damp day, with the drizzle turning to rain when we arrived. Sadly several of the gorgeous old trees had been severely damaged by the recent hurricane, but this is still obviously a great place to meet a friend, let kids play, or just relax.

    Took the tour around the house. Very well cared for indeed and the antiques in this house are wonderful. Had the full tour around the house, and learnt about the old day. Fascinated with the fire stands to stop the lady of the house, to have rosy cheeks from the fireplace. Don't want to look like the hired help, working hard. The tables, seat, dishes, all well looked after on display. The history about the house, as it nearly burn down in the historical fire. Glad the society is able to keep it going and they are so prod of this house and it shows. Please go and see this house, and the money you donate keeps the place going.

    The tower brings 200 years of history to be acclaimed a National Historic Site. The brochure says it has “a rich history, a spectacular view, a bastion of fun!”. I agree with the first two but “no bastion of fun” for me, it’s undergoing a substantial restoration, so interior viewing was not possible. Still, you can imagine the tower sitting imposingly over the surrounding area, whose combatants were ready to defend Canada at all costs.

    The Trinity Church has been restored to the present state including the English Coat of Arms. The stained glass windows inside the Church were attractive while the other areas were well maintained. Worth for visit.
