The city of Bathurst – www.bathurst.ca – is the centre of the northeastern New Brunswick, and offers everything you’re looking for in the ideal getaway. The Bathurst Harbour gives you another opportunity to enjoy beautiful water views. Downtown Bathurst and La Promenade Waterfront are located in the heart of the city, offering succulent seafood, restaurants, unique shops and local artisan studios.
