About Saint John
This is the place where actor Donald Sutherland (father of Keifer Sutherland) discovered his love of theater via puppet classes at the New Brunswick Museum in Saint John. Home to Canada's oldest independent brewery, Saint John is the largest city in New Brunswick affectionately referred to as "Fundy City", due to its location on the shores of the Bay of Fundy. The city sits at the mouth of the Saint John River that was originally known as "Madawaska" (a Maliseet word that translates to "Land of the Porcupine"). The Saint John River is where it is said that Admiral Horatio Nelson floated the white pine masts for his fleet of ships that eventually were used in the Battle of Trafalgar. The river is the international boundary between northern New Brunswick and Maine and has the highest tides in the world. Scavenging on its banks at low tide is worth the effort for the mineral-rich tasty treats of sea salt and dried seaweed that is used to flavor stews and soups.
If you go for a meander around the town you will come across shopping centers, heritage brick buildings and historic cemeteries. King's Square is where it all happens for the locals with its 2-story bandstand area. You can poke your nose into the Loyalist House with its elegant Georgian decor dating back to 1817 or check out the Barbour's General Store on the waterfront that is a curiosity, which needs to be seen to be believed. The national historic site dating from 1813, Carleton Martello Tower is a city landmark that has survived 2 World Wars and is now the go-to place to peek at military life in the 18th century or the definitive lookout point over the Bay of Fundy. There is the coastal terrain of forests and volcanic rocky shoreline to explore by foot, on the narrow peninsula known as Irving Nature Park.
There is plenty to do in Fundy City when you want time away from tapping on your laptop, especially mooching around the Saint John City Market that is the oldest continuing farmer's market in the whole of Canada.
