    We visited here today on our way from St Andrews to Moncton and were fortunate it had just opened for the season. After meter parking nearby, we paid $5 ea with a card and got an immediate tour through 9 rooms on 2 floors of the oldest unaltered building in St John. It was filled with period furniture; 1830’s piano-organ(plays simultaneously and only 2 in the world), interesting delft-like steaming platters, blind oven beside the kitchen fireplace, golden chinaware, and the bed slept in by the Prince of Wales in the 1800s. Very knowledgeable docent.

    Walked through a couple of times and drove round it even more. Statues abound but most impressive is the old bandstand in the middle.

    This is well worth a visit, though currently the tower itself is closed. Interesting history which is presented well in the visitor centre.
    If the fog isn't in, some great views too

    This Victorian Gothic church is magnificent. I only wished I could have gone inside to see the interior, but as everyone knows, churches are no longer open to the public except on Sundays and special events. (In Europe, most of the well-known cathedrals and churches are open for viewing). Interesting fact: The bell tower and steeple is 210 feet tall and topped by a 6-ft long wood gilt fish weathervane. The fish was an early symbol for Christianity (and not a symbol of fishing in Saint John, which is what most people would probably think).

    A Must Do, Highly Recommended! We stopped at Fallsview Park in the morning, and then we came back at the end of the day. It was amazing to see the difference. It's striking. There are clean public restrooms here, in addition to a number of independent vendors. You must see it at the different times for full effect.

    The Cathedral is a towering structure in Portland. The Cathedral was build in the 1860s and serves as an example of Gothic Revival. You can develop an appreciation for the sheer size of the building during a walk on the grounds. Note the many windows, which I found to be interesting.

    About 1.5km walk from the road, beautiful view and nice lighthouse. The automated light was on and turning even during the day. A bald eagle flew overhead quite closely while looking out on the bay.

    We walked here after seeing Reversing Falls. There wasn't much here but was interesting to see. The fort itself was locked up so we couldn't go inside. we did go up farther to read the monument about the fort. The views were really great, which is why the fort was built here i the first place.

    Not a particularily historic lighthouse but the views and nature make up for it here. Mind the steep cliffs in front and the loose rocks though. Several people have fallen in the bay and at least 1 has died as a result of hiking down the trail in front to get closer to the ocean vista's...

    The Loyalist Burial Ground is very historic (obviously) and has beautiful tombstones and monuments, several brick and granite walkways, stately trees, nice landscaping, plus a beaver fountain.

    When on a cruise ship, sailing in and out of Saint John, you may notice this abandoned island just outside of the city port. This place was designated a national historic site in 1974 and features an abandoned house and lighthouse.

    Its real claim to fame is that it was the very first quarantine station to be set up in North America in the early 1800's - almost a century before Ellis Island. The lighthouse is said to be Canada's third lighthouse and later on had the prestige of being operated by a steam powered fog horn.

    This was such an old historic building. The architecture is amazing and we enjoyed just strolling around the grounds and taking pictures. We were able to go inside as well and it is magnificent

    Our son and daughter in law were married here and the staff and location was excellent. Beautiful art work which was a great back drop for the occasion. Easy access and centrally located
