- Fort Beauséjour - Fort Cumberland National Historic Site, 111 Fort Beauséjour Road, ☎ , fax: +1 506-536-4399. late June to Labour Day, 9AM – 5PM. Ruins of a French fortress Fort Beauséjour, built 1751 to counter the British construction of Fort Lawrence near the site of the ruined Acadian village of Beaubassin and control the Isthmus of Chignecto . The British defeated Fort Beauséjour in 1755, using it to house Acadians as prisoners (a group of 80 Acadian captives escaped on February 26, 1756) during a period of mass deportations known as le grand dérangement. Acadian refugees resettled as far afield as Louisiana. British forces occupied the fort until 1835; it was then abandoned and fell into ruins (which were only partially reconstructed). There is a museum on-site. $4.
- The Schnitzel Haus, 153 Aulac Rd. (across the street from the Irving Big Stop), ☎ . Being close to the border between NB and Nova Scotia makes it an easy choice of restaurant when making the trip between provinces as you almost have to drive right by it, at the junctions of NB highways 2 and 16. Serves German cuisine, reasonably well-known around the Atlantic provinces due to the relative lack of such cuisine in Atlantic cities.
Go to the truck stop near Highway 2 and have a coffee.
