Local Attractions

Saint John, NB, not to be confused with St. John’s NL, is a popular tourist destination known for its natural wonders and cultural attractions. Once in the city, delegates will find the area easy to explore and wonderfully compact.  Saint John’s wide range of top-rated restaurants, shopping, entertainment, theatre and beautiful downtown architecture are the perfect complement to the Convention Centre, Hilton and Delta.  Some of the most popular places to visit are the Reversing Rapids, where the monstrous Bay of Fundy and strong St. John River duke it out over crashing tides.

If you’re in the mood for a little shopping and a lot of eating, head over to the Saint John City Market, the oldest continuing farmers’ market in North America. Here, local vendors and artisans are lined within its rafters that resemble the inverted hull of a ship. After wandering down the aisles, you’re sure to find a souvenir or two to bring back home.

The waterfront streets of Saint John evoke a remarkable past for visitors and locals alike. The Market Square offers the perfect backdrop for watching cruise ships dock. Contemporary food and entertainment are also served in this square with lots of options to choose from.

History buffs will love the city’s historical buildings such as the New Brunswick Museum, North America’s longest-running museum. It features three full floors of Saint John’s industrial history, the Hall of Great Whales and other interesting galleries suitable for all ages.

If you prefer a deep breath of fresh air, venture through Irving Nature Park. Just minutes away from Saint John’s city centre, this 11 km outdoor oasis offers you a choice of forest, beach, marsh and trails. Or make a day out of Rockwood Park, where outdoor enthusiasts will love the long list of action-packed activities available to them.
