Saint John (not St. John and not to be confused with St. John’s, Newfoundland) is situated on the south coast of New Brunswick on the edge of the Bay of Fundy.

Following a devastating fire in 1877, much of the town was rebuilt and many of the Victorian buildings have since been lovingly restored, especially along Prince William Street.

Reversing Falls Rapids

A principal attraction is the Reversing Falls Rapids which is a good place to see the effects of the Fundy tides. Fundy National Park is nearby, where visitors can marvel at the highest tides in the world.

The city also offers some great restaurants and pubs where seafood is a frequent highlight.
