Pristine natural scenery, photogenic little towns, charming beaches, and sprawling parks remain top reasons to take a trip to New Brunswick. This relatively small Canadian province with a long Atlantic coastline remains sparsely populated, the majority of its area covered with dense forests. Five scenic drives intersect the region, allowing visitors to spend their New Brunswick holiday sightseeing from the comfort of a rented car or bicycle.

Garden of the Gulf
Canada's only island province, Prince Edward Island earned the nickname the "Garden of the Gulf" thanks to its pastoral landscape of rolling green hills and a patchwork of cultivated fields. The country's smallest province in terms of land and population, the island boasts a long coastline marked by sandy beaches, making up in visual appeal what they lack in modern infrastructure. It's easy to get away from everyone during a vacation in Prince Edward Island, as this photogenic landmass features just a scattering of small towns housing warmhearted locals stubbornly clinging to their easygoing lifestyle. Begin your Prince Edward Island tour in Charlottetown, the quaint provincial capital with a good selection of bars and restaurants.
