My partner and I might actually get a week off before the winter and we want to explore NB and/or PEI. I'm pretty well taken care of on PEI because I'll be doing business and have some helpful contacts there, but New Brunswick is uncharted territory! What are some must-see places, must-dos, must-eats, beautiful nature spots, interesting locations, historical areas, etc?
Personally I'd like to keep our actually driving time to a minimum since we drive so much already every day, but if there's a place I cannot miss I'm interested. Should we take the Digby ferry over to Saint John or drive around to Moncton? That's pretty much all I know about going to NB right now. Where are the most francophone parts of the province (I want to practice my french so I can understand my Quebecois bosses). We'll only have about three nights at most.
