New Brunswick Staycation Bucket List Ideas

“Apart for now. Not forever.”

That’s the message New Brunswick is sending to the world during this pandemic-impacted summer. A media campaign and website,, are working to remind people near and far that Canada’s ‘picture province’ is filled with wonderful, natural elements that can be explored safely under social distancing regulations.

On this episode of the Pickle Planet Podcast, co-hosts Tosh & Jenna share some of their favourite New Brunswick destinations and chat with the province’s Minister of Tourism, Heritage and Culture Bruce Fitch about the campaign, his beloved local haunts, and how a summer spent exploring our own province may have lasting impact as our collective pride of place is sparked.
