Shediac, New Brunswick
The town of Shediac, New Brunswick, is located in Westmorland County, on a sub-basin of the Northumberland Strait known as Shediac Bay, just west of the famous Parlee Beach Provincial Park. Shediac is a little-known town with a small population. But, those who do know it love it, among other things, for its lobster - hence it's nickname, "Lobster Capital of the World."
"Lobster Capital of the World"
One of the best times to visit Shediac is in July, when Shediac's celebrated lobster festival takes place. Of course, when you're there, be sure to check out the largest lobster sculpture in the world, which you'll find at the western entrance to the town. It truly is a sight to see!
