St Andrews By The Sea: From Ghosts To Golf, Canada's First Resort Enchants Travelers

Canada’s first-ever resort, the Algonquin Resort, was built in 1889 as a destination location on the coastline for travelers to come for the fresh sea air. A stunning Tudor-style castle overlooking the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick, it is easily one of the most recognizable buildings at St Andrews By the Sea. Today it is still a fabulous place to come and relax, whether by the indoor or outdoor swimming pools or just staring out into the moody blue of the sea. There are also a few dining options on the property and an 18-hole seaside golf course that just underwent a renovation and features breathtaking bay views from many of the holes. As many hotels with more than a century and a quarter of history do, the Algonquin is allegedly haunted by more than one ghost. The staff is happy to tell guests all the gory details. Off property, St. Andrews by the Sea is a charming coastal town with more than a few worthwhile attractions.

My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
