New Brunswick Travel Guide (Canada) | Visiting Fredericton, Saint Andrews, Fundy & Hopewell Rocks

today we’re going to be taking you on
our family road trip across New Brunswick after 2 days driving across
Ontario and Quebec we finally arrived at our destination Fredericton the capital
of New Brunswick and also the city that Sam’s parents call home in this video
we’ll be showing you some of her Fredericton highlights and then we’ll be
touring the charming seaside town of st. Andrews hiking and fundy national tark’s
and marveling at the hopewell rocks on the Bay of Fundy which is home to the
highest tides in the whole world we hope you’ll enjoy our tour of the province
and now let’s go explore New Brunswick good morning good morning guys greetings
from beautiful sunny Fredericton New Brunswick it is summer it over here oh
and this is where we are kicking off our road trip yes so we’ve got a full day
here in Fredericton yep so we’re here with my parents and with Sam’s parents
and with the dog so we’re gonna be exploring around on foot right now we’re
walking along waterloo road which is known for its beautiful riverside homes
actually some of that and then check out more of the town yeah so basically we’re
gonna be exploring Fredericton we’re gonna be exploring some other areas in
the province so yeah this is going to be what we what we’re up to you in the
province of New Brunswick hope you like this little guide and we are walking around there here
there is a river designed Johns River over there and what we wanted to show
you is all these colonial houses to me there is nothing nicer than this these
houses they have such a personality they have a history and they are built the
way houses used to be built in the day and we are talking about the late
seventeen hundreds a early 1800 and I don’t know you look at like this
myself I feel like any minute you’re gonna see George Washington coming out
of the front door you know or maybe Jacques Cartier or something it’s so
historic it’s amazing the way they have kept it you know each one has a
different character is different than the other one you do not see two that
are exactly the same they are all people we’ve been working here for about maybe
a kilometer or so and they are side-by-side so if you ever come to the
city of Frederick man please take the time come here take a walk you can you
know right by whatever but do not miss this section if you like architecture
and things like this because it’s really really worth your time and one thing I
wanted to mention is that a lot of these mansions have been turned into bed and
breakfasts so it’s a really nice option for people coming to visit Fredericton
you can stay right by the river really close to the old town and yeah you get
to experience this beautiful architecture a type of construction that
you don’t even see anymore so we’re gonna keep walking along Waterloo row it
is a very hot day today we are melting but we want to keep showing my parents
the homes along here because it’s their first time in the province and yeah it’s
just a very different from Ontario well well Samuel here we are
whoring your parents hometown with fresh eyes I know it’s we we don’t play tours
here very often no I’m here to hang out it’s basically more like a living
situation whatever we’re here yeah it’s been nice to show your parents around
show them some of homes by the river and now we’re gonna
walk across the pedestrian bridge and yeah absolutely
and I have to say it my dad is loving the homes here we keep stopping to
admire them was mucking about construction what do you like most is
that every single house has a unique design back yeah back when they were
built that’s how architecture was done yeah as cookie cutter mold that you see
today yeah I don’t like the suburbs where they live in Ontario exactly so
every house has its own unique character its own unique features so it’s been
really fascinating just walking along here by the river and checking them out
yep and now we are making our way over to the walking bridge we’re gonna cross
to the other side and I think food and drinks are on the horizon another sampler portion of years Oh
sliders yeah slightly very nice dark to light so we stopped at a restaurant or if you
go to the bar you can ask for a bowl of water for your pooch isn’t that right
togi my what a good boy you might need more dad so what do we got over here we
have a sampler plate from Peppa ruins raid on the waterfront of the st. John
River yeah beautiful location the strongest one I think it’s kind of like
a stout though that’s the best bidder yeah that’s the dooryard I think yeah
yeah well one of them is the red red Irish – this is the red Irish that’s the
dooryard yeah so I’ll I’ll try this one here try them all just tell me what your
favorite is my favorite you like those no thanks full body flavor yeah this one
here is a little bit higher in alcohol but mmm very good I hope my palate can
readjust for each one of these and last but not least this is the latest
recording yeah yeah cheers Cheers all right I’m gonna put you on the spot
okay if you had to rank him from from last to first last apart yeah lots
different last last second last second best first so they were like they’re
lined up for you and up like that aligned to the scope for the wind for
Stoke this is the winner the winner is there and now we are waiting for fish
fish and chips and burgers shit yeah my parents my parents ordered burgers and
the rest of us ordered fish and chips yeah I mean we’re out on the East Coast
gotta eat some fish we’re gonna have some fish so fish and chips arrived paddock I
believe no I will have one in a minute juicing I’m getting onion rings behind
the scenes here the ring guys and we’ve got some nice clean slot with Apple Wow
nice cabbage an apple tasty huh a really nice meal for a summer day yeah the fish
is wonderful that’s awesome we took a break after all that food and
drink and later in the afternoon we drove to Odell Park so that Tolo could
enjoy a walk in the woods well guys we have made it to hotel park
top of the day that’s the lungs of Fredericton it’s basically a nice little
forest lots of trails here and what’s wonderful is it was 32 degrees today
here I would say 5 or 10 degrees cooler oh we got a little light streaming
through yeah it is so nice yet a little bit of a breeze and it’s just nice
having a reprieve from that some that beats down on your face exactly yeah
it’s really nice I’ve been here in winter with you I’ve been here in autumn
it’s awful Park any time in the winter I go snowshoeing here with my dad we break
trail we got off of the trail so much fun but for the time being just a great
place to walk the dog there’s some huge old trees here your dad is like
marveling at them besides of that yeah yeah and my dad was
saying that some of them are between 150 to 300 years old so yeah it’s quite
impressive and yeah it’s just a beautiful place to come when you’re in
Fredericton I highly recommend it we enjoyed a nice dinner back with Sam’s
parents and then called it a night because we had a busy day ahead Oh all right guys it is our final morning
in Fredericton we’re taking Joey for a walk and we just stopped by the old
burial ground which is a cemetery right in the city centre and this was a
cemetery for the loyalist her loyalist yeah so mr. history enthusiast here yeah
let us know this the loyalists were the people that left the United States well
it was in the United States yet because he was during the the war of
independence for the United States so as the British Army retreated mainly from
New York City in those areas all the people that were loyal to the king on
the crown they also left with the Armed Forces so this is the place in New
Brunswick where they came and they settled there were so many of them that
they created kind of a new province for these people to start anew you know to
start their lives all over again yep and this is the place where I think
that they were buried you know this is the cemetery and yeah it’s nice because
it’s not like a your usual cemetery that has no room that everyone is piled up
kind of great too grave and another thing is the kind of Tom stones that
they were using in those days right yeah some of them they look like a monolithic
like you know you haven’t you don’t see that today anymore
but there is a lot of history here believe me it’s nice and it’s good thing
that they keep it like this so we stopped by here we came from the
cemetery we took a couple of streets a walk and we came to what was the
barracks this is where the British garrison was stationed in the in the
days you know it’s a beautiful building they have kept it almost
in tact and down here all these gates as you see but I imagine in the old days
must have been to keep the artillery and all that I mean the cannons and stuff
that the big machine right today they’re used by the students because right here
you have the college of craft and design yeah and then the students they set up a
shop in each one of these and they expose their showcase their work yeah
the crafty creations in the university and they they sell it to the tourists
and stuff like that right but yeah it’s a beautiful building and yeah it’s a lot
of history over here imagine this is from the days when our Canadian province
was created so we showed my parents a few of the city
landmarks topping a town hall of the lighthouse and the legislative building
and then it was time to hop in the car and start this road trip all right so this is gonna be a fun road
trip so happy that my dad can join me Pompey George yes I’m really looking
forward to it last time I went on the trip like this
was in 1979 Wow I had worked 13 summers in a row yeah and I figured well you
know I it’s time to take a summer off so we jumped in
I had a 65 Chevy boat I call it a boat because it was like a drives like a boat
he had to Haman you couldn’t drive it anyways you guys took a big road trip oh
yeah and it made it all the way there and back we went to Gatsby we went to
Wow all through Nova Scotia Cape Breton
that’s amazing so you know the places we’re going to yeah so the question I
have for you is the first place we’re going to seeing Energy’s what compete
what can we expect there cuz I’ve never been well it’s the pearl of New
Brunswick it’s a must-see place of it coming to it’s like a little town
located on the coast yeah yeah yeah it’s got it’s got lots of lots of charm
beautifu our next destination was st. Andrews
about a two-hour drive away this is a very picturesque seaside town where you
can do whale watching excursions boat tours and enjoy delicious seafood so a little update from st. Andrews we
have arrived it took us about two hours you took the scenic route yeah it’s
beautiful going through these small little towns man during country roads
and we ended up here we right oh by the sea now three degrees cooler guys which
is very nice and you’ve arrived right around lunchtime so first things first
seafood seafood we found a little restaurant called Shire Town pub they
have ordered three seafood platters they do takeout so we’ve got a whole bunch of
different things seafood fish and chips and yeah we took the dog out for a
little walk along the pier there’s people doing sailing today there’s whale
watching so yeah it’s just a nice tranquil little town out on the water
and we’re really enjoying it so far we found some shade we’re just chilling out
here so three seafood platters have arrived that’s a bit of everything we’ve
got fish and chips well the fish we’ve got shrimp scallops out to seafood print

from the ocean from the ocean push on needs across the street right there yeah
do you guys have a favorite so far out of the shrimp select them all them all
scallops are so juicy I tried one alright guys enjoy yeah because it was such a hot day we also
made time to find a beach so that Togo could splash around and cool down he was
very happy with that okay so we had a wonderful lunch oh my
gosh it’s amazing so much variety huh yes yeah so fresh it just has a the
flavor of the sea you can’t replicate that when you get frozen fish brought in
from somewhere else I don’t know how to explain it you’ve got to come out here
and try the local sea looking forward to seafood still got lobster lobster rolls
we’ve got a lot more to try but so far so good
yeah so after eating lunch we came down to the beach there’s like a little
pebbly beach here in st. Andrews and we gave Togo a little splash a little swing
of it his first time into in the sea he’s done a lot of leeks he’s done some
rivers but never he’s never splish splash tanned the
ocean before yeah so we’re just enjoying a quick little pit stop before we get
back in the car and continue driving next up is cape and Ray yeah we’ve got
that’s where we’re staying we’ve got about three hours to drive and
have a feeling we’ll be making at least one more stop along the way to walk the
dog you know and so we’re just gonna plot plot a row I think there’s a number
of different ways to get there and hopefully we’ll take the most scenic one
oh it’s a it’s on it’s on the weasel that’s the bottom of the rock there then it was time to hop back in the car
and drive to our next destination cape and rage where we had rented a cottage
for the next two nights it was about a three-hour drive to get there with a few
stops for the dog along the way we had to cross all of Fundy National Park and
that gave us a nice little taste of what we had to look forward to the next day well guys we have arrived this is home
sweet home for the next two nights a little bit windy out here it is so much
cooler in temperature from Fredericton when we left this morning it was like 35
degrees in Fredericton here it’s 18 degrees it’s so much cooler we have a
nice breeze we’re by the ocean the dog is laughing he’s just running around
free no need for a leash here but yeah we rented this cabin through Airbnb it
has four bedrooms it’s really big inside they even left to bed for the dog which
is amazing so right now we’re just unloading everything from the cars and
I’m gonna take you in and give you a quick tour so you can see what it is
like in here it’s really cozy and rustic lots of wood so there you have it this
is gonna be your kitchen dining area for the next two nights and we have a big
living area here but honestly I think we’re gonna be spending most of our time
outdoors we came here for the nature the scenery yeah oh I’m looking very
disabled it’s windy outside so yeah there you have it the different bedrooms
but yeah it was a really beautiful Drive we can already see the tide like when
you’re driving along the coast my goodness this is the biggest tide in the
world and whoo-hoo more of that to come we were all pretty tired from a long day
of driving so we didn’t do a whole lot that afternoon we mainly unpacked cooked
some dinner and played with Togo out in the yard
no complaints from him the following morning we got an early
start and made our way to fund the national park for some hiking after a
few days of driving Toto was thrilled to be out in the woods leaving his pack
down the trails well good morning everyone we have made
it to fund the National Park first day here
it’s the windy one and the foggy one hey togi dogs on the loose and yeah we’re
gonna be doing some hiking in the National Park today we’re at Wolf Point
and what’s the name of this troop ship Haven ship Haven is the name of the
trail and that’s what it was and yeah there’s actually a boardwalk here which
makes it really a nice super easy to walk just a few steps we’re in the woods
but we’re also kind of following our River it seems so yeah we’re getting
some nice views it should lead to a beach I think it continues oh does it so
yeah we’re starting off with the shorter trail an easy one oh and it has lots of
really nice lookout points too so what do you guys think of the trail
so far it’s been very nice I like that it’s a boardwalk easy walk through the
forest shaded great views along the way and we’re now making our way down to the
beach it’s low tide and dad we passed an old area where that used to be like
longer there is logging in a timber area and covered bridge yeah that was when
back way back when most of this area was that’s what they used to do back then
fishing and logging you know you know logging yeah so that was been replaced
by a National Forest which is pretty good you know I mean everybody gets a
chance to come and visit here now not just the loggers or the fishermen yeah
you know the nice part about all of these there are no people here we are
the only ones there is just another three persons I walk by here on nature
full nature and it’s just pristine not even people you’ll find over here so
what a place to visit if you have the chance to come to New Brunswick and
visit this National Park you know like you’ll love it a lot of main thing is
will work your whatever you do don’t drive through just stop here please it’s
nice it’s a nice province and I could not believe the amount of forest I
describe this province as a huge forest you know like I mean it’s is beauty I
mean all the way good boy back in the car time for a little update
so we made it down to point Wolfe Beach it was really cool it’s low tide so we
got to walk along the seabed very pebbly muddy no sea creatures to be found
Togo had lots of fun running around free wild now we’re back at the picnic area
where we left the car gonna have a little bite to eat yes
so yeah just some fruit peanuts and we’re gonna keep hiking
this is so beautiful though like I loved the trail having a boardwalk the views
we got along the way nature it’s just so green so lush and it’s nice being out on
an overcast day with like the fog rolling in it’s just so Moody
Toto saw another dog he’s like who’s this
is that a lady friend mm-hmm meanwhile everyone else is already picnicking let’s go picnic after enjoying a little snack on the
picnic tables we got back in the car and drove towards herring cove to give togo
a chance to play in the water i mean this really was his vacation we’re just keeping an eye on Togo who’s
going in the water splashing around but we don’t want him swimming too far or
drinking salt water yeah but yeah we just wanted to stop here and show you
guys these rocks covered in seaweed and algae because you can really see the sea
level during high tide low tide right now it’s low tide to the water starting
to come in again but like where the rock is all wet it’s like a darker color like
that’s how high water gets up there really high this Bay of Fundy is it’s
got the highest difference in tides in the world between low tide and high tide
and yeah it’s amazing but all of this eventually will be gobbled by the by the
ocean and it’s a it’s a huge difference because here we have like maybe I don’t
know what four meters at least of you know the the fluctuation in this area so
and now we’re starting to come in and when it starts to come in it comes in
really quick so if you visit you have to be careful when is low tide if you go
walking around not to know once it comes it comes and yeah so they have the Times
posted in the Visitor Center you can see one yeah and it fluctuates so what
should we do it’s crazy to be standing on what is sea
bed right now yeah yeah and this one is called herring cove beach yeah and
beautiful views of the whole coastline if you don’t want to miss it on the
background it’s just pure forest it’s amazing postcard perfect you see here
and I think that’s where we stain that point over there apron rage that’s where
it’s just starting to clear now the fog look at it that’s where we are staying
and this morning was all fogged in and we couldn’t see nothing
yeah but luckily it’s just cleared and we’re having a beautiful beautiful day
yeah then salmon his dad drove to Alma to
grab some lunch for the group Alma is a small town located just outside the park
so they picked up some fish and chips and we enjoyed them with coastal views that afternoon we continued exploring
the rest of fundy national park and visited two different lakes again
keeping our boy togo happy the fog was starting to roll in as we
drove back to the cottage that afternoon and shortly after it started to rain we
didn’t do too much except watch movies and do some reading but we were lucky
enough to have a very special visitor this dear the next day was another early start
because it was our last day in the province and we couldn’t miss the
hopewell rocks well a good morning guys today is our
final day here in New Brunswick and we’ve made a stop at the hopewell rocks
one of the most iconic tourist destinations here and yeah we’ve arrived
early in the morning it’s like 8:15 now they’ve just opened up the park and
we’re at one of the observation points one of the lookouts where you’ll see the
tide it’s slowly making its way out I think we have about an hour and a half
or two hours until the tide is completely out but it’s already like
moving away from from the shoreline it is still impressive yeah you can see the
rippling the water rippling out is receding huh yeah it’s just amazing the
amount of if you look in the background the water is right here right now and
look what is the shore I mean the the the stretch is unbelievable retreated
and also today last night was it was raining like crazy we thought that today
was going to be a right of the day but this morning I mean it couldn’t be
better the day is such a beautiful sunny cool crispy day one of those morning’s
that you just happy to be alive you know it says one of those morning’s
of WoW and they are the plus there’s no one here
we’re the only yawns know all this beauty and and I don’t know maybe later
on it’s a Sunday morning crowd so yeah we’re just really enjoying it and now
we’re gonna make our way down to the flower pots because it’s low tide we’re
gonna get to walk around the seabed but if you visit during high tide you can
actually go kayaking around the flower pots which is really exactly and also it
to be prepared because the soil here it seems to be all the clay so I got the
funny feeling that we’re gonna get sticky down there and walking in
slippering and were see we’ll see what we find
let’s go check it out let’s check it out also his belly the belly is the worst
part I’d say well we just finished visiting the hopewell rocks and this is
very smart like when you walk around there you get really muddy that it’s
like this sticky red clay we are kind of worried like what are we gonna do with
the dog because he had mud on his paws on his belly like he was dripping but
essentially but once you reach the top again there’s a little washing station
with like a hose where you can like spray down the dog there’s brushes where
you can like scrub down your shoes so it’s very convenient very well planned
now we’ve got a wet dog but at least it’s a clean dog well this marks the end
of the New Brunswick portion of the road trip we are now on our way towards Cape
Breton so we just wanted to share final thoughts and impressions on this
beautiful province New Brunswick what did we think I think it’s extremely
beautiful I’ve I didn’t have any idea what a we’re going to find you know what
the expectations were but they’re beyond what I thought it’s a you know it’s a
place worth visiting here you know a lot of people drive through here without
stopping and there is so much to see and such a beautiful wilderness if you will
you know but yeah I really loved it so recommend it 100% and what about you
this is your home province now you live here yeah I got to see a little bit more
of what I didn’t see before and so that’s always good find a park I got to
know quite a bit more of that that’s an awesome spot now beautiful
thumbs up for New Brunswick onwards to keep the big wave okay

  1. Canada is on my bucket list hope to see its beauty soon😊 Small vlogger here from London. Sending love to everyone❤️❤️❤️

  2. This video is really weird without Sam eating a lot of Korean food. It's like a totally different vlog. You guys should have made Korean bbq on a camp fire. And just somehow incorporate Korean bbq in every video you make regardless of what you're doing.

  3. Hopefully in the future I would call this place Home, thinking about migrating to Canada to attend the New Brunswcik College of Craft and Desing.

  4. Beautiful city! Love both of your Dads! Thank you so much for sharing your trip. I wonder the cost of the beer and food.

  5. OMG! Quaint towns, historic atmosphere, beautiful nature surroundings, great food & majestic forests. A visitor's dream!

  6. Enjoying your Canada series! And the addition of the canine and the parents was a wonderful idea! Glad to see Audrey back, missed her on the Korea series.

  7. Hey all of you , another great video,I admire both of your parents for all of that walking and hiking it's alot for older people,and Togo sure is a lucky dog ,most people leave them when they travel,Canada is such a gorgeous place I'm envious of you ,Looking forward to our next adventure, safe travels.

  8. I haven't been to the maritimes since I went with my parents in the late 60's. I need to go back! Audrey, I love your dad's accent!

  9. Nice share 👏👏👏 If you are interested with Turkey and Egypt check-it-out…

  10. I really enjoyed watching this magnificent scenery filled video! Canada is a very beautiful place. I am so glad you have taken this trip & equally very happy that you are sharing it. I just loved the beautiful architecture in those magnificent mansions in the beginning of this video. All of the beautiful forests and trails along with all the very scenic little towns you passed through made this so enjoyable! There is just so much to see and take in I am going to need to wstch it again. I just love watching your dads & Audrey's dad adding in the historical facts about the loyalist and old British barracks was very intersting.
    as well. Thank you so much for doing this trip and sharing it with us. Take care and as always safe travels.

  11. Sam, how can your dad properly test beer without cleansing his palate with a pretzel between each taste? However, his favorite was the same one that I, most likely, would have picked.

  12. I’ve spent the day in St Andrews! We went on a cruise of New England and Canada and we decided to go there on an excursion. We loved that cute little town❤️

  13. I just found this chanel a week ago, and its adictive. I use to watch both, the spanish and english chanel for practicing my english. Greetings from Costa Rica ❤️🇨🇷

  14. This video is like therapy for me. So so relaxing, I love it see Canada through your eyes. Would love to visit sometime 💕

  15. Heyyyyy – George!!!!!!))))))) Also, the fish & chips look good, and I'm an Englishman – a Yorkshireman!!!)

  16. Fundy nation park is amazing and very underrated. We stayed inside the park for a few days and it was never crowded. We found squid and crabs at low tide. A highlight for my kids.

  17. I really loved the accent of Audrey's dad which shows that he is originated from a Romanian language speaking country.

  18. 37:30 Togo did not seem to like the high pressure of the water hose. Whenever you come back to Germany you should visit the 'Halligen' in the North Sea.

  19. Had no idea you were from here. I am too. My parents live right at the North end of the bridge. I spend most of my time when I'm there at Picaroon's. 😉

  20. I'm watching this vid on my way to work in a metro. I feel relaxed imaging crisp wind and smell of sea and forest there. Thank you!

  21. I absolutely enjoyed these beautiful videos on beautiful Canada 🇨🇦 is sure is beautiful.
    Thanks for sharing this great video.

  22. I was curious how Cape Enragé got its name. It turns out that there is a reef there and the waters become extremely violent at half tide when the reef is just visible coming up from (or going back to) the water. Interesting. As you were there a couple of days and saw the tide going out and coming in, did you notice the reef? I would have liked to see it, and so am adding this to my trip to Nova Scotia. Great video! I would have given a great deal to take trips like this with my parents. Though I took my father to Alaska, I would have loved to take my mother to Europe. To Spain and France and Greece, especially. . She was a very gracious and graceful woman who left people with strong positive thoughts of her. She spoke several languages, including French and Spanish and Latin. We knew a holiday or birthday was coming, or that a husband was misbehaving when the sisters reverted to another language. They spoke several languages in one conversation and would start a sentence in Spanish and finish it in French. She would have LOVED Europe and deserved every trip I could give her. The point is that it is good to see how much you two enjoy your folks and I wanted to give you two big thumbs up and to tell you to enjoy it while you can. It is such precious time. Thanks for taking us along!


  24. I like the video, fish and chips are delicious 😀 I like blue cod the best in south Island NZ, but in north Island has different varieties of fish so its different up there for fish used. Its winter in NZ wish it was warmer 32 degrees is hot 😀

  25. The seafood, scallops looked good. I like battered green lipped mussels and bluff oysters here in NZ at the fish and chips shop. Canada lobsters looks nice, we have rock lobster or crayfish here it is expensive but are also nice to eat.

  26. Nice video guys i really enjoy it we are travellers too i subscribed to your channel for new ideas and tips!!

  27. Hey Sam, are you home now? I know it takes all of you different time schedules to post your videos but I keep seeing videos of you and David in Korea and now here you are in Canada. Just wondering which came first?

  28. Just watched both languages version. Can't believe you made both speeches live, I was expecting an off voice on the Spanish version. This video is of a high quality in various aspects. Keep growing guys, good job indeed.

  29. Loving this TRIP!! I live on the east coast near the ocean ( Rhode Island ) and hàve been to Nova Scotia màny years àgo . Canada is so beàutiful !!
