The sandy beaches and rich coastal wetlands of the Gulf of St. Lawrence lure visitors to New Brunswick campgrounds, just as the landscape lured French Acadian settlers 250 years ago. Attractions along the Acadian Coast include lobster-fishing villages, lighthouses and beaches tailor-made for a family vacation. To the south, the Bay of Fundy boasts the world's highest tide. High tide to low differs by more than 50 feet (15 meters), stranding fishing boats, turning islands into pillars and creating mud flats beloved by shorebirds. Witness the drama at Fundy National Park.
