Travel Deal for Victoria Day Long Weekend, May 18-20, 2013 

vicky vacay deal of the dayParlee Beach is one of Canada’s most renowned sandy spaces and its location in Shediac, New Brunswick one of the most glorious in Atlantic Canada.

Overlooking the Northumberland Strait, which separates New Brunswick and Nova Scotia from Prince Edward Island, Parlee Beach Provincial Park offers a friendly, fun environment for families, campers and RV owners. Travellers looking for a luxury getaway, will want to book a stay at the Tait House.

A mansion that dates to 1911, the Tait House is a short drive or a 40-minute walk to the beach in this town called the “Lobster Capital of the World.” Along with fine accommodations, the Tait House offers additional services such as a private wine-tasting class with its chef and sommelier Chris MacAdam, and the opportunity to book a cocktail cruise at sundown.

One-night rates at the Tait House start at $159 per night. Rides Through Acadian Country contributor Cinda Chavich made her way through New Brunswick’s Acadia territory last summer, stopping in Shediac and driving through coastal routes dotted with French heritage and old fishing towns. She came away wowed by the culture, the vistas and the lobster.

Chavich writes: “They claim the lobster sculpture next to the highway in Shediac is the largest in the world, it’s massive, anatomically correct claws and antennae making a killer background for the family holiday photo-op. But this scenic coastal strip of sandy beaches and cottages is also home to the country’s largest population of Acadians, a maritime French-Canadian subculture, known for its long history, unique language, culture and joie de vivre.”
