St George is a great place to take a day trip, as it features beaches, hiking trails, spectacular scenery, wildlife, and casual or formal dining. When it comes to beaches, you can choose from fresh or salt water. The Trans-New Brunswick Trail leads hikers through the woods to Lake Utopia. The famous gorge and falls offers viewing, photography, and painting opportunities.
Bird watching is popular, especially when done for eagles, osprey, bitterns, and great blue herons. Fun ferry trips embark to the Fundy Isles on a regular basis. Whale watching and scuba diving are popular activities at the Bay of Fundy, where the highest tides in the world can be seen.
There are also many sites of historical and architectural interest, like the Anglican Cemetery, the Presbyterian Church, the first settlers' landing place, and more. Riverside footpaths and lighthouses add to the enjoyment of visiting this diverse town.
