  3. Shediac is home to the World’s Largest Lobster statue. This statue is 10.5 m (34 ft.) long and 4.5 m (15 ft.) high, weighing in at a whopping 90 tonnes! It makes for a great photo.
  4. Grand Manan Island in the Fundy Isles is one of the top birding spots in North America.
  5. Grand Manan Island is also the Dulse Capital of the World. Dulse is an edible dried seaweed with many healthy properties, containing many minerals and a variety of vitamins.

  11. The “Longest Covered Bridge in the World” is located in Hartland, New Brunswick. It measures 390 metres (1,282 feet) long. There’s even a brand of chips called Covered Bridge Potato Chips.

  18. One of the most famous sights in New Brunswick is Hopewell Rocks, a group of rock towers standing 12 to 21 meters in height (40 to 70 feet) on the Bay of Fundy coast. These are caused by erosion from the bay’s famously high tides. They are also known as the Flowerpot Rocks, or simply “The Rocks.”
  19. However, in February of 2022, New Brunswick’s iconic Flowerpot Rock on Fundy Trail toppled into the sea in a storm. Don’t worry though. There are still other rock formations to see.
