Saint John - The Loyalist City
United Empire Loyalists founded the city of Saint John in 1785. As Canada's oldest incorporated city, Saint John's history and culture are rich and varied. Adding to the friendly, inviting atmosphere is the highest population of Irish descendants in Canada.
Market Square: A waterfront development with 100-year-old facades, the area houses a delightful array of craft shops, restaurants and boutiques.
Old City Market: This is Canada's oldest operating common law market. Passengers can return after the tour to sample the local specialities offered in a festive atmosphere.
Fort Howe: Originally constructed in 1877, the current fortification is a replica.
Reversing Falls Rapids: The tides of the Bay of Fundy, the highest in the world, have a dramatic effect on the St. John River. When the tide is high the river flows backwards up and over the rapids, a sight not seen in many places around the world.
Martello Tower: This fortification was built in 1812 to defend against a seaward attack.
Barbour's General Store: The museum is located in a restored general store that dates back 120 years.
