We left our base near Hopewell Rocks, NB and made the two-hour drive to St. Andrews by-the-Sea, NB. The actual town’s name is Saint Andrews but is sometimes referred to in tourism marketing by its unofficial nickname “St. Andrews By-the-Sea”

St. Andrews by-the-Sea as it is often called, has long been one of New Brunswick’s premier vacation destinations.  It was voted Best Destination in Canada by USA Today 10 Best Readers’ Choice 2017

This historic downtown, full of unique treasures made by local artisans, 27 acres of Kingsbrae Garden (one of the Top Ten Public Gardens in Canada) and the scenic harbour made us want to spend more time here in the future.

In 2016 the Canadian Institute of Planners awarded the prestigious Great Street designation to the town’s historic Water Street, stating that “it has been the heart and soul of commercial and community life in St. Andrews by-the-Sea for over 200 years – the focal point for its 1,800 residents and 80,000 annual visitors.”
