Fredericton was named the 2009 Cultural Capital of Canada by the Canadian government for its efforts to preserve its three founding cultures and embrace the melting pot within the city. The city hosts regular art festivals and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery keeps 3,000 pieces in its permanent collection. The historic Garrison district is an essential stop on any tour of the city.
Visitors will find a variety of ethnic eats, ranging from Caribbean to Asian. The St. John River divides Fredericton and tourists can float down the river in a tube. With an average temperature of 32 F in winter, bring a heavy jacket to enjoy Fredericton during the winter months or come in summer when the average temperature is 73F.
