New Brunswick, the gateway to Atlantic Canada, is a province of brilliant contrasts. It is truly bilingual; both French and English are taught in public schools. And it is bicultural as well, with towns that have a distinctly different feel. You would never mistake the very British enclave of St. Andrews for French, nor Caraquet for English. But these are not the only flavors you will notice here. New Brunswick has a large Irish population, especially along the Miramichi River, and an entire town, appropriately named New Denmark, is populated with Danish immigrants. A major Highland festival brings its many Scottish descendants to Fredericton each summer, and near Sussex are farms that are unmistakably German or Dutch. The province’s Aboriginals—the term they have chosen as their official designation here—maintain their cultural traditions, which they are more than willing to share with visitors. This eTrail is a chapter excerpted from the book "Insiders' Guide to Eastern Canada." It is packed with information on each destination including history, getting there & around, major cities & regions, and what to do & where to stay when you get there.
