Nestled along the shores of the beautiful Saint John River, Fredericton is as much urban energy as small-town charm. For visitors, it’s the ideal home base for exploring not just the attractions of the city, but the entire capital region.

The city itself is rich in history, nature, art, dining, and a youthful energy—complements of the vibrant student population. Take the time to visit the Historic Garrison District, and its countless festivals and events; explore downtown Fredericton’s restaurants, shops, pubs, and cafes; slow down with a visit to a gallery, art studio, or the science centre; and get closer to nature in a kayak, running a trail, or just hanging out in a park.

Then, explore a little beyond city limits, and discover a whole new Fredericton. Award-winning Kings Landing Historical Settlement in Mactaquac Country; picturesque Hazen Park Marina in the nearby town of Oromocto; the unique hand-made treasures in the Village of Gagetown; or fly fishing for salmon on the world-famous Miramichi River; the Capital Region surrounding Fredericton is packed with authentic experiences you won't find anywhere else.
