Sussex is at the heart of Kings County, perhaps the prime example of a New Brunswick pastoral setting. The rural surroundings are, no doubt, a contributing factor to the down-home spirit of its residents. The shops and enterprises of Sussex comprise the center of Kings County commerce. But there is more!
Kings County boasts 16 covered bridges making it the "Covered Bridge Capital" of Atlantic Canada. As a note of interest, the covered bridge at Oldfield was featured on the 1992 Canadian .25 cent piece representing New Brunswick. You can view the historic buildings found in Sussex; go play the fairways at the Sussex Golf & Curling Club; ski Poley Mountain; cycle the country roads and trails; canoe the waterways; hike the pathways; visit the fully accessible Sussex Museum & Gallery.
The town of Sussex finds itself positioned between the three major cities of South/Central New Brunswick. The highway to the west leads southwest to Saint John. Travel east to Moncton and northwest to Fredericton. A short drive brings thousands of New Brunswickers to the area and its campgrounds, motels and, of course, the businesses making up Sussex's downtown area. Drop in and see what we have to offer. It's free!
