The Rocks Discovery Site, Hopewell Cape New Brunswick

The Rocks Park (30 minutes from Moncton on Route #114)
    Massive columns of rock, wearing wigs of gnarled evergreens, stand on absurdly narrow stems of stone. Carved by the mighty tides of the Bay of Fundy these natural sculptures are nicknamed the "flower pot rocks." During low tide, visitors can pick their way down to the beach and explore rocky columns, casts and crevices. At high tide, the Bay rises to fill the eaves and turns the "flower pots" into rocky islands! The best time to visit the park is three hours before until three hours after low tide.

Albert County Museum (Route 114 at Hopewell Cape)
   The Abert County Museum reflects the history of this beautiful seaside country. Every item in the museum comes from the homes, farms, shipyards and early stores of the country - but mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries. Set in a serene seascape, the museum buildings are themselves artifacts, consisting of a gaol, court house and forge all dating from 1845, and host to the haunting stories of those days.

Salem & Hillshorough Railroad (On Route 114 in the village of Hillsborough)
   Here's your chance to take a ride on an antique train and View one of the best collections of railroad artifacts and equipment in Atlantic Canada. Open daily from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. For information, or to arrange charters, telephone (506)734-3195 or 734-3733.

Font Beauséjour-New Brunswick

Font Beauséjour (An hour's drive from Moncton via Routes #2 and #106)
   The star-shaped Fort Beauséjour National Historic Site was built by the French in 1751 and was captured by English troops in 1755. The battle proved to be a portentous conquest in the Seven Years War that saw the fall of Quebec and the end of French colonial hopes. The defeat of Fort Beauséjour also led to the tragic expulsion of the Acadians in 1755. One of the few Canadian fortifications at which fighting actually occurred!
