Crabbe Mountain Ski Information
Be sure to visit Fredericton during your break from skiing. If you happen to be in town on a Saturday, check out the Boyce Farmers' Market where more than 200 vendors offer everything fresh, from seasonal vegetables to meats, baked goods, and crafts. Or visit the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, home to an impressive collection of British paintings. One entertaining and enlightening way to learn about the city's history is to sign up for a walking tour with the Calithumpians of Fredericton's Outdoor Summer Theatre. Costumed guides offer free tours daily in July and August, pointing out highlights with anecdotes and dramatic tales. Recommended is the evening "Haunted Hike" tour, which runs 5 nights each week. Fredericton is well noted for its distinctive architecture, especially the fine Victorian and Queen Anne residential architecture. Particularly attractive is Waterloo Row, a group of privately owned historic homes, some grand, some less so. It is also the place for horse and wagon tours, interpretive tours and hands-on craft workshops. Downtown boutiques, cafes, pubs, restaurants, farmers' markets and fine art galleries, are guaranteed to keep visitors occupied and interested for a few hours Another activity, besides wandering around, includes bird-watching at Gagetown Island.
