My reason for discovering Saint John and the Towns by the Bay started last year on an impromptu work-cation. My partner and I drove through Saint John on our way to Fundy National Park and both thought it was beautiful but were unable to stop.
Fast forward a year, and a change of career paths allowed us to pick up and move from our home town to anywhere in Canada. Although we had never actually explored Saint John, we both felt a pull to the city and regretted not being able stop on our last trip East. Within a month we had found a short term rental and made the 16 hour drive to Saint John with our two cats.
It has been the best decision we have made. The people here are second to none. The natural beauty is like no other. And the community fostered within Saint John and the Towns by the Bay has made this region feel like home.
I would encourage everyone to visit Saint John and the Towns by the Bay on their next vacation. There is something here for everyone and I promise you will be a better person because of the time you spend here.
