Summer Family Fun

 

Summer is my all-time favourite season, flowers are in bloom, people are out walking around, and it’s beach season! I wanted to share some of my favourite places to bring my family during the summer.

 

Magic mountain – Always a hit with the young, and young at heart! Magic Mountain is an outdoor waterpark that now has amusement rides, an arcade, and 36 holes of mini golf. Whether you want to take a leisurely tube ride around the lazy river, a swim in the huge wave pool, or a ride on one of the many water slides, magic mountain has something for everyone.

 

Magnetic Hill Zoo – Located just across the street from Magic Mountain, the Magnetic Hill Zoo has over 400 animals spread over 40 acres, making it the largest zoo in Atlantic Canada.

They offer daily feeding shows, pony rides, canteen, and one of the largest outdoor playgrounds I’ve ever seen!

 

Parlee Beach Provincial Park – This beautiful beach is located in Shediac, NB, just a 20 minute drive from Moncton, and well worth the trip! It boast the warmest salt water in Canada, has a great restaurant on-site, beach volleyball courts, and daily activities for the kids.

If you happen to be heading to the beach on a Sunday, don’t forget to stop at the Shediac Park Market, located right in the center of town.

 

Hopewell Rocks – Home to the highest rising tides, Hopewell Rocks is a must see! I recommend planning to spend an entire day here so you can experience some of the highest tides in the world, then a short 6 hours later walk on the ocean floor, 52 feet below!

I hope that everyone gets a chance to get out on this beautiful long weekend! Just a reminder that the provincial parks in the area will have free admission on Monday August 1st, to celebrate New Brunswick Day.
