New Brunswick Village Makes Expedia’s ’10 Best Places To Visit’ List
Alma, New Brunswick has a year-round population of only about 240 people and a summer residency of maybe twice that, but the lovely community, known primarily for lobster and scallop fishing, is also the gateway to the Bay of Fundy.
"Spend some time walking on the ocean floor in 2016 – just because you can! When you book a trip to Alma, located on the shores of Bay of Fundy, you can witness the famous 50-foot tides first hand. At low tide, you can walk out and wiggle your toes in the sands of the ocean floor. While you’re there, be sure to nosh on locally-caught lobster. The best time to visit Alma is summer, when you can witness the breathtaking tides from the docks in Alma Harbour. However, if you visit during the winter, winding snowmobile trails await. Stay at the New Horton Lake Inn: You can’t beat the private garden and spacious front porch."
The small village provides two large lobster and scallop retail outlets, 2 motels, one hotel, a service station, 1 church, camping facilities, liquor retail and 2 grocery stores, several restaurants with menus that reflect the Bay of Fundy's offerings, B&B and Inn accommodations, cottages and trailer hook-ups as well as Chalets. The village is well-known for baked goods, an eclectic book store and gift shops.
