Moncton is a city on the move and for visitors, it's chock-full of things to see and do.
Thrill seekers will love the giant waterslides at Magic Mountain (part of the gravity-defying Magnetic Hill complex) or outdoor adventures at TreeGO.
Those who appreciate the arts can revel in the architectural beauty of the Capitol Theatre, a fully-restored 1920s-era vaudeville house on Main Street or enjoy the talent at the annual Frye Festival, a bilingual literary festival named in honour of Northrop Frye.
The city's historical sites, the Moncton Museum on Mountain Road and the Musée Acadien at Université de Moncton, are a must-see for history buffs, along with heritage houses such as the Treitz Haus, located on the riverfront adjacent to Bore View Park and the only surviving building from the Pennsylvania Dutch era.
Sports fans can cheer on the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League at the new 9500-seat Arena. In 2006 the Wildcats won the President's Cup of the QMJHL championship.
For those who like to shop, there are plenty of options in downtown Moncton, at Wheeler Park Power Centre or Champlain Place, the largest shopping mall in New Brunswick. Also you can visit the Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World Store.
In the mood for a relaxing afternoon stroll? Head to Irishtown Nature Park, one of the largest urban nature parks in Canada or the downtown Victoria Park, which features a bandstand, flower gardens, fountain and the city's war memorial.
