i'm moving to the northeast from this year, have been looking at new england, but think i should cast my net a little wider before i decide.

i've heard that the maritime provinces are beautiful. i have no idea what the cities (towns?) are like, though. can anyone help with more information on specific areas, so i can target my search when i visit?

there's a section of quebec that sits above new brunswick - what is this area like?

where in the maritime provinces would a homeopath find the best reception?

thanks. (yes, i'm bilingual french-english.)

That area of Quebec located north of New Brunswick and boudaried on the north by the Gulf of St. Lawrence is known as the Gaspe peninsula.

You could try web searching cities like Halifax, Saint John, etc.

I personally love the area, I'm not bilingual so i keep myself more in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, And Newfoundland. My favorite being Newfoundland.
There is a cheese factory/store just NE of Riviere-du-Loup, i believe it's in Riviere-Trois-Pistoles, It is sold warm when fresh, and has a mouse on the package. It's the best cheese I've ever run across in the US or Canada.
What I like may be different from what you like terrain wise, so...take a month and go see all that area, and then decide which province/area suits you best

Come to St. John's [Newfoundland]. The metro area is relatively small (~180k I think) but there's loads to do in the city and the city is full of history and culture - oldest city in North America.
