This post is sponsored by Envision Saint John but I chose our family’s activities and places to visit/eat.
The Halifax-Saint John drive is the only one in which I say I’m “going home” regardless of which way the car is driving. Halifax is the home where we’re raising our kids, but Saint John is where I grew up and it will always be home to me. It’s a fabulous city and every time I’m back, I marvel at how it grows more vibrant with each passing year. Even better: it’s surrounded by towns that are equally charming. Our family trip was planned around the International Sculpture Trail, a unique international art exhibition featuring seventy-two large scale granite works of contemporary art by world renowned artists, including 38 pieces (by the end of 2022) that were created during the Sculpture Saint John Sculpture Symposiums. Our route included the sculptures found in Sussex, Hampton, Quispamsis, Rothesay (where I grew up!), Grand Bay – Westfield, and of course, Saint John! My goal is to share our adventures and thus show you why you should plan a long weekend to Saint John with your family – and plan to check out some of these fantastic pieces!
