Fredericton is the capital city of New Brunswick, Canada. It's population is just under 57,000, slightly larger than the city I am moving from (Brandon, Manitoba).
Fredericton has been referred to as the Poets' Corner of Canada and if that fact isn't exciting to an English major like me, I don't know what is!
Fredericton is known for its Indie Rock scene (which really excites me because it's my favorite genre of music). In fact, the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival takes place in Fredericton from September 10-15, 2013. I'll be living there by then - pumped!
Other things in Fredericton that I look forward to:
- Beaverbrook Art Gallery (they have Salvador Dali paintings!)
- Playhouse (the main venue for Theatre New Brunswick - singing and dancing and acting, o my!)
- National Historic Sites (there are twelve of them!)
- Seafood (as in like real, fresh, East Coast of Canada seafood - yum!)
