Fredericton in well known for its pubs, live music, and its Farmer’s market.

For those who like to stay close, the Delta has three restaurants to choose from: DJ Purdy’s Lounge, The Dip Pool Bar and Grill and the Urban Grill. For those who like to get out, there are two places to eat just across the parking lot. As you can see from the map there are many more choices on King and Queen streets just a few kilometres away.

Located in downtown Fredericton is Christ Church Cathedral. It is the first Gothic Revival cathedral built in North America. Built between 1845-1853, it is a National Historic Site. The plan is that  the Cathedral will be open for visitors  on the Hop On Hop Off bus tour Thursday afternoon, May 2 of the conference.

 

 

The New Brunswick Legislative Assembly building is across Queen Street from the Lord Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Another stop for the Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour for these two historic sites. The Legislative Assembly was  completed in 1880.

 

 

 

 

The Lord Beaverbrook Art Gallery offers world class viewing. Hop off and see the Salvador Dali piece.  Conference Attendees get 50% off admission.

 

 

 

 

In the picture are:
The world famous “ flower Pots’ or Hopewell Rocks near Moncton,
The longest covered bridge in the world in Hartland- only 100 kms from Fredericton,
The Confederation Bridge to PEI,
and of course one of our beautiful lighthouses.

 

The question can be asked: is there a lighthouse in Fredericton? The answer is definitely yes.  You’ll find it on Regent Street downtown overlooking the Saint John River.

 

 

 

The Fredericton Walking Bridge is near by.

 

 

Odell Park has 500 acres of many types of trees and flowers natural to New Brunswick in the heart of Fredericton. The park has several wide walking trails to enjoy on our bus tour.

 

This is the view from our hotel, and the Hop On Hop Off Tour offers so much more to see.
