FREDERICTON - HIP AND SAAVY
 
(2014 - Spring/Summer Issue)

Writer: SANDRA PHINNEY



Two years ago Fredericton waltzed away with the title “Canada’s Great Street,” beating out 15 contenders including Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s residential address on Sussex Drive in Ottawa.

No wonder. Queen Street is crammed with unique shops, historical buildings, trees and open spaces, great restaurants, a performance theatre and a world-class gallery—all on a stretch barely more than a kilometre long.

This is why I return to Fredericton every year for my “Freddy Fix.” Fond memories include walking into White Lotus Tattoo where I checked my sanity at the counter. By the time I came to my senses, I was sporting a stunning tattoo from wrist to elbow.

One place I always return to is the Fredericton Boyce Farmers’ Market. With more than 250 vendors, there’s always something special and breakfasts are legendary. The city also lists more than 40 free things to do ranging from concerts to guided heritage walking tours and viewing classic films under the stars.

Finally, Fredericton is famous for its festivals. For example, the Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival spans six days during which world-renowned musicians strut their stuff at a variety of venues and music oozes from every café and pub in the city.
