Things to do in DOAKTOWN with kids

New Brunswick has so much history, and so much incredible nature to explore, you can easily go every day experiencing something NEW! (After all you can’t spell New Brunswick without n…well, you get it!)

A museum where you can take part in fishing camping for kids – just like at the Atlantic Salmon Museum? That’s new! Hand’s on science fun whilst at an aquarium (like Huntsman Marine Science Center) – that’s new!

Creepy and spooky after dark haunted tours (like with Calithumpians Haunted Hikes?) That’s BOO! Sorry – that’s new!  Exploring bogs, marshes, rivers and lagoons? (Like in Kouchibouguac National Park?) That’s new!

Exploring towering cliffs, tumbling waterfalls AND the highest tides in the WORLD (Like with Fundy Trail Parkway?) That’s new! (And pretty awesome!)

Discovering the fascinating Acadian history with Village Historique Acadien? That’s new!

There are so many things to do with kids in New Brunswick, you will always find something new!
