    The Acadians that are found in Louisiana where once French residents of this area. The entire French colonies were deported by the Loyalist of the Crown of England to different locations about the world only to return. The University of Moncton has a museum that will take about one hour to visit.

    A definate trip to the Hopewell Rocks is worth the trip. These rocks are formed from the ocean and look like huge flower pots. You can walk down and stroll the beach but when the tide starts to come in leave quickly. This area is one of the largest tides and fastest tides in the world. You are touring and walking on the ocean floor at all times and you can also tour the caves.
    Its so very pituresque and the sea salt air with the breeze makes it worthwhile on a very hot day.

    If you get a chance, stop in Sussex. It's a crappy little town, but it does have a couple of things worth looking at. One of them is a little tourist trap called Animal Land. There really isn't a whole lot there, but it is a very pleasant place to stop, especially if you're cycling.
    Animal Land is home to all sorts of life-sized and larger-than-life-sized statues of animals and animal charicatures. There is a little cafeteria, shaded walking paths, and a pond full of enormous, sedentary bullfrogs. The frogs are very calm, and the big ones will let you pick them up. Make sure your hands are wet first, though. Their skin is delicate and you don't want to injure them with dry hands.

    At the time of my visit, there was also a nice big trampoline which was lots of fun to bounce on. You'll have to clear off the pine needles and stuff first, though. It's right under a bunch of trees.

    If you're going to go shopping in Moncton, Champlain Mall is the biggest shopping centre in the province. I'm not a mall person, but if you are, you really should check it out. It's enormous. Canadians seem to like shopping malls in a really big way.

    Hopewell Rocks Park

    by Lisser Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Massive columns of rock, wearing wigs of gnarled evergreens, stand on absurdly narrow stems of stone. Carved by the mighty tides of the Bay of Fundy, these natural sculptures are nicknamed the 'flowerpot rocks.' During low tide, visitors can pick their way down to the beach and explore rocky columns, caves and crevices. At high tide, the Bay rises to fill the caves and turns the 'flowerpots' into rocky islands! The best time to visit the park is three hours before until three hours after low tide.
    Really something to see!!
