I’ve got a lump in my throat. I grew up in Fredericton and genuinely can’t decide which country experiences I should highlight. From baling hay to milking Ayrshires on beautiful Keswick Ridge, New Brunswick is a province of "what ifs". What if we lever our location to refine oil apart from the Big Leagues?

Boasting the nearby infamous landing location of St. Croix Island near New Brunswick’s Passamaquoddy Bay, New Brunswick is the cradle of European discovery and settlement in 1604! One of the east’s saltwater havens, you’ll be blown away by the tall-ship era, the whale breaching bays, and seafood choices par excellence.

We have been beavering away at rural tourism for 20 years in the province of Ontario. An underrated and loose moniker within Canada, "Rural Tourism" has a much more prominent place in countries like the UK, where rural is proudly distinguished and awarded ! The 20/21 "Rural Business Awards" are garnering excitement and prestige in the new millenium.ruralbusinessgroup.co.uk
Canada, we think, has to embrace and get actively involved in promoting all things rural.
Contextually, ruralroutes.com is about bootstrapping the non-urban so anyone can find it with felicity. Romantically, we are about enlightening the world with backroad delights. Futuristically, we are looking for interested parties to take over the business interests of ruralroutes.com in succession.
