For anyone considering a move to NB, Metro Moncton (City of Moncton, City of Dieppe, Town of Riverview) is a spot you seriously want to consider. With many opportunities to get into outdoor recreation, both summer and winter become fun. Enjoy two national parks within an hour’s drive, snow mobile and hiking trails galore, and dozens of golf course to be played on a day trip. And for the cycling enthusiast, all three communities boast many kilometers of interconnected trails tucked safely away from traffic.
Locals enjoy a great slate of wonderful restaurants. There are a wide variety of different cuisines, with more opening all the time. For food trucks to fine dining, there is always something new to try. With the ocean never far away, seafood is something extra special.
