Celebrate the lobster with Shediac vacation rentals
Shediac owes its name to a Miꞌkmaq word which means 'running far back'. Set upon the scenic Northumberland Strait, the town's claim to fame is without a doubt its lobster connection. Look out for the lobster fisheries, live lobster tanks and local festivals dedicated to this all important crustacean. And with a vacation home in Shediac, you'll have a kitchen where you can try some recipes out.
Historic and artsy with a touch of lobster
Visitors to Shediac's western entrance are instantly greeted by the gargantuan 90-tonne sculpture of The World's Largest Lobster in Rotary Park. Designed by Winston Bronnum, the sculpture attracts thousands of visitors annually. History fans should visit Shediac's Old Train Station, which traces the region's railroad history through fascinating photos and artefacts.
Shediac's oldest home, the Pascal Poirier House, was built in 1825 and is also worth a visit. Step back in time as you imagine how a New Brunswick middle-class family lived in the early 19th century. Downtown Shediac is a photographer's delight with its century-old houses such as the United Baptist Church (1893), Vienneau House and Tait House. The 150 year-old Pointe-du-Chene Wharf is where locals fish and even dive right into the sea as yachts glide buy. Souvenir stores and ice cream shops lend the wharf a distinctive atmosphere.
Outdoor pursuits for water babies
Shediac boasts some of Eastern Canada's finest beaches where visitors can enjoy swimming in warm waters, boating and wind-surfing. The family-friendly Parlee Beach has great sand bars, tide pools and a gentle incline. Or how about some stand-up paddle boarding or some kayaking down the Scoudouc River? Newbies can even take lessons at Shediac Paddle Shack.
Check out the Able Sail center which is committed to introducing this therapeutic marine sport to persons with disabilities whether emotional, physical or mental. Another entertaining prospect while in Shediac would be the lobster cruises where you can learn the intricacies of lobster fishing. The friendly cruise staff might even help you master the art of catching a lobster and cracking it open with finesse.
Annual lobster festivities and more
The best time to visit is during the world famous Shediac Lobster Festival, a fixture since 1948 that takes place each July. This must-attend extravaganza lets you savor succulent lobster dishes paired with a choice of fine wines. Music, dance, live children's entertainment, and a 200-ft. long lobster roll are part of the yearly festivities. You'll need to book your Shediac cottage rentals in advance.
Lobsters aside, the town is committed to its musical roots with Acoustic Sundays that feature Canadian and international artists. Gigs take place across bars and at the Shediac Multipurpose Centre.
