Best Time To Visit
New Brunswick is warmest and busiest during the summer when visitors flock to the province’s beaches, parks, and other outdoor attractions. However, even at the height of the season, finding hotel deals is rarely difficult, making this a great off-the-beaten-path, pet friendly vacation spot. The spring and fall shoulder seasons are also nice times to visit, though many outdoor attractions are closed in the off-season. Spring is dry and warm, and fall features colorful leaves and comfortably cool temperatures. New Brunswick winters are cold, but hotel prices are even lower, making popular ski resorts like Mount Carleton and Sugarloaf bargains compared to other east coast options.
Things Not To Miss
