Details: Saint John tour director-led sightseeing
Did you know that Saint John, New Brunswick is Canada’s oldest incorporated city? You’ll learn about the city’s heritage and visit some of its most iconic locations with your tour director. The Saint John City Market, the oldest continuing market in Canada, first opened in 1876 and runs the length of a city block—be sure to look up when you enter the building, the ceiling’s rafters look like a ship’s hull! The Loyalist Burial Ground was established after the landing of the United Empire Loyalists in 1783. It hasn’t been used as a cemetery since 1848, instead, locals stop here to enjoy the beautiful gardens and take a break from the bustling city. In 1849, a post containing three red gas lamps, called the Three Sisters Lamp, visible for three miles seaward, was stationed at the end of Prince William Street. If the three red lamps appeared individually, sailors would know they were heading straight into the harbor, however if only one or two could be seen, sailors knew they needed to alter their course.
