Moncton is a vibrant and busy city and whilst it lacks the historical districts that other New Brunswick towns and cities have, its heritage is brought to life through a number of cultural institutions and museums. Worth visiting if you have time are the Moncton Museum and the Transportation Discovery Centre, which between them give an insight in to the various industries and cultures that have shaped the city. Additionally, the Musée Adacian at the University of Moncton tells the interesting story of the resilient Acadian settlers through a range of exhibits, guided tours and historical documentaries. For a place to stretch your legs Centennial Park offers a peaceful refuge in the middle of the city, and nearby Magnetic Hill winery is a great spot for lunch with a view and a fine glass of local wine.
In Shediac you will naturally be drawn to the ocean, whether you simply stroll along the beautiful Parlee Beach or take to the water on a lobster cruise.
