In the early 20th century, New Brunswick was a very big deal. Millionaire businesspeople, major-league baseball players and US presidents journeyed here to fish salmon from its silver rivers and camp at rustic lodges in its deep primeval forests. But over the decades, New Brunswick slipped back into relative obscurity. Today some joke that it's the 'drive-through province,' as vacationers tend to hotfoot it to its better-known neighbors Prince Edward Island (PEI) and Nova Scotia.
But the unspoiled wilderness is still here. There are rivers and coastal islands for kayaking, snowy mountains for skiing and quaint Acadian villages for exploring. So do yourself a favor, and don't just drive through. PEI will still be there when you're done, we promise.
