There are many different restaurants, cafes and pubs available both in town and around the area providing foods of Germany, Japan, Thailand, North America, to name a few as well as many fast food chain outlets. Shopping in both the downtown core as well as the mall near the Trans Canada highway will satisfy most wants and needs and there are many more within a short 45 minute drive to either Moncton or Saint John. We are central in the triangle formed by Saint John, Fredericton and Moncton/Dieppe and day trips to those locales are a very short hop. 35 minutes to the south is St. Martins with its sea caves and tides where kayaking is the favoured sport. In Alma a small fishing village just outside the National Park boundary, deep sea fishing is available as well as a variety of seafood from local fisherman, especially local lobster.
