    Went here with a group of friends and were able to catch the tide rising. It is worth taking the several flights of stairs down and back up. The volunteers on hand do a great job of keeping you out of harms way and explaining and answering questions. Simply amazing visit!

    Very cool FREE tour of the "cottage" frozen in the time of FDR. Knowledgeable tour guides and interpreters in the visitor centre. Lots of beautiful vistas and scenic rocky beaches along the well maintained dirt roads through the huge wooded park across the road.
    Had a very nice but pricey chowder and sandwich lunch at one of the other historic cottages in the complex of (4?)

    Fundy National Park was practically empty in the middle of November, and I saw an approximate twenty (20) other visitors. While it was cold, I really had a great time at this park. Dickson Falls was a relatively easy trail that had wooden stairs; the panoramas of this waterfall were fantastic. I also got great views of Bennett Lake and the Caribou Plain. I did not encounter many animals besides the usual birds and rodents. I also enjoyed looking out at the Bay of Fundy, from Alma Beach, and the water was very rough and cold. The winter admission cost me eight dollars and fifty cents in Canadian dollars ($8.50 Canadian).

    When we arrived and discovered that the Kingbrae Garden covered 20+ acres, I suggested that my husband visit the Garden alone while I waited in the car as I currently have some mobility problems and couldn't walk that far. My husband explained the problem to the manager who graciously agreed to let a guide drive us around in a golf cart. Our guide, Ginger, was incredibly kind and patient and understanding of my disability. She drove my husband and I around, identifying all the plants and sculptures and providing an excellent history of how the Garden was created, the story of the generous family who made it possible, and how the Garden had become integrated into the local community, helping seniors, student, etc. The visit to the Garden was the highlight of our visit to St. Andrews. We especially appreciated its effort to accommodate members of the disabled community who otherwise would not be able to enjoy such an amazing place.

    Great views. Went on Squirrel trail and Observation point. Could use more signage on trails, maybe with colour coding?

    It is definitely worth the time and the small fee to drive there rather than taking the highway. There are lots of pretty viewpoints and tons of short and easy walks accessible for anybody of any age. You can drive though without stoping or you can take hours to explore every little waterfalls, bridges and hikes.

    Note that the speed limit is 40 km/h, so be PATIENT ;)
    The two ladies at the entrance (Jenna and Diane?) were simply lovely and charming. Being greated by them was the best way to start our day!

    It was cool to see the progression of homes and lifestyle of the Acadians from mid 1800's up to mid 20th century. The village is huge, it's a full day visit, with many homes and buildings to see in a village format. The people who portray the villagers as it was during that time period did an amazing job of being in character, from cooking the food as they did back then, to farming, and working at a business. The highlight was the old flour mill that is still operational after 150 years. It's incredible to see the building, see how it works, and the brilliant engineering of it's time. The print shop, blacksmith, and barrel maker were also highlights. They also have a restaurant on site that offers a menu catered to that time period, it smells delicious! We didn't have a chance to try because it was quite busy. The homes were cool to see, as you start at the beginning, from mid 1800's to mid 1900's, each home has a character, or several that portray the family who lived there at that time. You can ask them questions, of how they lived, the history of the home, and establish a timeline of the lifestyle changes.
    I would love to go back again, it was so cool to see and experience. Definitely worth to see!

    Beautiful, also the restaurant next door has delicious soup. It's a relaxing walk and the views are scenic. Wear comfortable shoes. The rocks are slippery.

    How exciting to drive on the ocean floor at low tide to tour the estate on this amazing island. At high tide the island is completely cut off from drivers. Interesting security! Lots of buildings to see and tour here. Such a display of wealth for their time and place in history.

    This was my first (1st) site to visit in Atlantic Canada. It was probably less than two (2) hours from the United States border. There was parking right by the bridge and on some of the nearby residential streets. This bridge was a nice walk and individuals can see the fast moving rapids of this river.

    I was excited to drive over the Confederation Bridge between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. A toll of over fifty Canadian dollars ($50.00 Canadian) had to be paid only when a person exited Prince Edward Island; these toll workers had credit card machines for credit card payments. The views of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence were incredible, and it probably took about fifteen (15! minutes of a drive to go from end to end of this bridge. The speed limit was eighty kilometers per hour (80 K.P.H.). I got stuck behind a truck when I exited Prince Edward Island, and there was only a single lane going in each direction. This bridge can be closed down due to inclement weather, so it is smart to check ahead before an individual plans to travel over this bridge.
