Saint John

Trip Planner Canada  /  New Brunswick  /  Saint John

Canada's Irish City

An important port city on New Brunswick's southeastern coast, Saint John has a long tradition of migration, especially from Ireland. Protected by the Bay of Fundy, the city has historically relied on shipbuilding and other maritime activities. The largely working-class city has strong union roots, with movements to protect workers' rights having helped to shape Saint John's culture. Nowadays, no trip to Saint John is complete without sampling the city's nightlife, which bustles with surprising energy for a relatively small city. Nearby natural attractions add to the appeal of tourism in Saint John. Plan your vacation with our Canada trip planner and discover the best things to do in Saint John.
