If you are visiting Canada, be sure to visit Moncton. There is something for everyone, a great family vacation. There is TONS of history and tons of outdoor stuff to do-from mountains to a man made lake! Definately bring the camera and make sure you have your SD card ready!
For the outdoor set definately try ziplining, the in the air treetop obstacle course or visit the Irishtown Nature Park.   You can visit the Magic Mountain water park or take in the Tidal Bore.  The tidal bore is where the tide comes in so strong that it actually appears that the river is reversing direction.
For the history buffs or for those looking to get an in depth view of the culture, there is no limit of things to take in.  There are many art gallaries and museums. The Lutz Mountain Heritage Mesuem is really neat. Built in the 1800's as a baptist church, it now displays historical  pioner items.
When it is time for meals, be sure to try the delicious local cuisine. There many Canadian restaurants as well as restaurants from all over the world. Thai, Korean and Irish-Just to name a few! If you are looking for fresh seafood served in the way locals would eat, try La Chateau a Pape. A family run business, it is a definate treat!
For the shoppers there is a definate variety! There is typical chains such as walmart, costco and outlet stores. There is an awesome themed shopping area, style after an old fishers wharf. There are shops, a pastry store and even a dairy bar! The kids and grownups will both enjoy stopping here!
Be sure to have a good time on your trip! Plan ahead and try to fit in as much as you can while you are there!
