St Andrews - New Brunswick

St. Andrews, also known as St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, is located on Passamaquoddy Bay, a Bay of Fundy inlet between Maine and New Brunswick. Now mainly a summer resort for boating, fishing, and other water sports, St. Andrews is one of New Brunswick’s oldest communities. Former Canadian Pacific Railway president William Van Horne once owned a house in St. Andrews, and the town has a long history of settlement first by the Passamaquoddy tribe and then by United Empire Loyalists. With unique natural features, historic sites, shopping, and more, St. Andrews is a place all visitors can appreciate.

One of the most spectacular sights near St. Andrews is the estuary of the St. Croix River, with tides that bring in all kinds of plant and animal life, including an edible seaweed called dulse, as they rise up to rise to twenty-eight feet or more. Visitors to St. Croix Island should be sure to see the covered bridges and lighthouses, while the marine aquarium is a fun place for young and old to visit.

Activities for all ages and interests are available in St. Andrews, from shopping along Water Street to visiting historic sites such as the Sheriff Andrews House or Ross Memorial Museum. Over 250 houses in the town have descriptive plaques on them, while modern life is represented by the many artists who sell their wares along Water Street. The town’s horticultural garden is beautiful in season, but St. Andrews is interesting all year long. For visitors of all ages, St. Andrews is a good place to stop on a tour of New Brunswick.
