St. John, NB or Yarmouth, NS

by EricaD

I am planning an eastern Canada trip that has me choosing which ferry route to take. I am having trouble deciding, and the differences are subtle. One main difference is that I'll have to choose between visiting:
- St. John, New Brunswick
OR
- Yarmouth, Nova Scotia

Any thoughts??

THANKS!

:)

Hi

I don't know very much about Yarmouth, though I believe it is quite small and I remember hearing it was very friendly. I'm from Saint John years ago and although it generally gets bad publicity for its pulp mills and overall industrial image there is enough to keep one busy for a day or two in and around the city. One attraction is Reversing Falls (rapids) a phenomenon caused by the Bay of Fundy's high tides. Saint John being the oldest incorporated city in Canada, Uptown Saint John has some intersting architecture (residences and churches). There are a number of nice restaurants downtown. Of course there is the old city market which is really worth the visit. The people are overll friendly. If you have any questions you can e-mail me. Good luck.

You should be aware that the ferry between Saint John, New Brunswick and Digby, Nova Scotia is going to be discontinued at the end of October of this year. Both cities and provinces are lobbying to save it, but I didn't want you to be surprised by finding that it's not running.

There are no ferries that take you from the US to Saint John.

I would recommend driving through Maine into New Brunswick, then around the Bay of Fundy into Nova Scotia. You could then take the ferry from Yarmouth to Bar Harbor.

Thanks!!

My trip is prior to the discontinuation you mentioned for the ferry between Saint John, New Brunswick and Digby, Nova Scotia so that's not a problem.

I'm aware that there are no ferries that take you from the US to Saint John.

My main deciding factor is: "is Saint John more interesting than Yarmouth?" I believe the answer is yes, which is the route I'll likely take, but TBD....

i haven't been to yarmouth but i didn't like saint john, nb. i went to the reversing falls during low tide and our driver suggested we go back at high tide which i did - very disappointing. i'd go to yarmouth.

I know it is too late for your purposes, but for purposes of anyone else reading this thread, Saint John deserves a lot more credit.

I agree the reversing falls are not drop dead spectacular. They are right next to a large pulp mill which causes me to refer to them as the reversing plumbing! Nevertheless if you observe them closely from the best observation area off of Douglas Avenue, it is a remarkable transition. And you may spot seals "fishing" between the little islands, or better still take a jet boat ride to really experience the rapids. At low tide you can really sense yourself going uphill through the rapids, and at low tide you can express your thanks you aren't in a canoe caught in the whirlpools beneath the reversing falls bridge.

But there are far more lovely places in Saint John.

Check out the Irving Nature Park. Or preview at bit at http://www.ifdn.com/inp/nshock/scrapbook.htm Pictures can be found at "Look Closer" links. Just a quick walk around the shore path of the Taylor's Island part of the park takes 2 hours. You'll see lovely beaches, cliffs, rocky promontories, and a special tidal estuary.

Or try hiking Rockwood Park in the city's north end which contains many lakes and enjoyable trails. It is Canada's 2nd largest municipal park.

Drive along Kennebecasis Drive starting in Milledgeville and take in the fabulously lovely and deep Kennebecasis River.

Head out toward St. Martin's and feast your eyes on the Fundy Trail - see fundytrailparkway.com for pictures of what I mean.

There are few cities in Canada with as lovely a natural setting as Saint John, New Brunswick, and few with as long a history. See tourismsaintjohn.com and check out the Firsts of Saint John - or try googling it.

Travel Tips for Saint John

City market

by daffodil

The City market is a great place to get fresh produce, meats and cheeses. It is downtown and is open all day. There are also places to get souvenirs. It is a nice town from what I saw (which was only some stuff downtown.)

Saint John Council

by Geoff_Wright

Now this is a mystery to me. I have just found in my 'box' the card shown in the picture. It grants 'Honorary Membership of the Saint John Council' for the evening of May 23 1965. However, I went to Saint John on Sunday 6th June, two weeks after this date!! Now why would I have the card?

Afternote: No one has yet written to me to suggest what the card was for, LOL

Hiking - Saunder's Brook & Matthew's Brook Trails

by Canuck5

The Town of Quispamsis is about 10-15 min drive east of Saint John, and there are several nature trails to try out: Saunder's Brook and Matthew's Brook Trails, Mud Lake Nature Trail, and the Hammond River Park Trails. The first three are very easy to walk, and the last is on the easy-to-moderate difficulty level. This post will describe the first two.
The Saunder's Brook Trail connects several neighbouring streets to the Recreation Center, and for the most part, is a pretty level trail. It runs about 1.8 km. If you're just looking for a path to go on a leisurely walk, this is one, but I wouldn't call it "hiking".
The Matthew's Brook Trails is a 1.5 km series of trails that meander through the woods behind the Rec Center, and the terrain is a bit more hilly. At the time of this post (Aug '09), there's a new Rec Center being built, and some sections of this trail are supposedly closed, however none of the construction encroaches on the trail itself (yet), so people are just walking by the signs.
Running shoes are fine for either of these trails. Not suitable for wheelchairs, however.
I saw no litter on either of these trails. Please remember to carry out with you what you carry in.

Don't Miss the Fresh Seafood

by pchamlis about Billy's Seafood Company

Did all of you VirtualTourist members get the little inside joke? "Don't Miss the Fresh Seafood" is the "example" that they list under "give your restaurant review a title".

OK, it's not original, but it really fits for this tip. Billy's Seafood Company in Saint John is both an excellent fresh seafood restaurant AND market. "Take Away" or "Take Out" can mean two different things here.

But, if we're talking about prepared meals, the restaurant features a wide variety of well-prepared local seafood entrees, prepared both in simple and more complex ways. The emphasis is on local and fresh.

They aren't 100% seafood, there are steaks and chops, and a vegetarian dish or two, but c'mon.... if you're eating at a place called Billy's SEAFOOD company, you're not there for the ribeye, are you? Among the better appetizer choices were the baked oysters and the bacon-wrapped scallops -always a favorite of mine. I saw someone having the bouillabaisse, and it looked scrumptious. I guess I wasn't in the mood for a big bowl of "B". (Maybe the next time I'm in Marseilles. :)

As for mains, they have excellent options for halibut and salmon, along with scallop and lobster features. I think you should consider a couple of the "mixture" options, perhaps the thermidor (featuring shrimp, Digby scallops, lobster and haddock baked in thermidor sauce) or maybe the Seafood Medley (featuring shrimp, Digby scallops and lobster sautéed with mushrooms and green onions in a garlic cream sauce and served over linguine). How about some cedar-plank baked salmon?

If you'd like something lighter, maybe less of an "entree", I'd perhaps look at the fish and chips or the Digby scallops and chips.

Whatever you get will be expertly prepared and fresh. Terrific food.
