St.Andrews-By-The-Sea - A Seaside Resort
5 to 7 hours
New Brunswick's countryside and rugged shoreline offer many scenic views during the hour drive to St. Andrews. This truly historic resort town was established in the late 1700s. Originally settled by United Empire Loyalists, the town shows off its history at every turn. Over half of the town's 550 buildings date back more than 100 years. The unbeatable combination of seaside quaintness, natural beauty and Old World charm makes this a tour not to be missed. Some of the Homes/Buildings on your tour were actually dismantled by the Loyalist and rebuilt here in St. Andrews.
The Algonquin Resort: First opened in 1889, the Algonquin is considered Atlantic Canada's premier seaside resort.
Water Street: Shopping in St. Andrews is certainly not of the mall variety. Stroll down the main street and browse in the friendly and unique shops.
Pansy Patch: One of the town's better known private homes, the Pansy Patch is now an antique print and bookshop.
The Block House: This fortification is the last remaining of twelve such forts built for defence during the War of 1812.
The County Court House: Built in 1840, this is the longest-serving courthouse in Canada.
