So my new job is taking me to Moncton. I've never been so any advice, tips, hook-ups, etc. would be appreciated.

:) My cottage is in Shediac, about 30 minutes from Moncton on the ocean.


My advice..... don't go! Moncton sucks. I think *tranner* is right, the best thing in Moncton is Magnetic Hill; that and cheap lobster.

I went to Moncton once.

My mother said if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

Soooooo, why am I even posting?

Not going is not an option. I've already made a commitment. I'm actually looking forward to a new adventure. I don't see it as a long term move..........maybe a couple of years. And besides, I love the outdoors and I plan on spendin' some time fishing on the Marimachi(sp) river, which is arguably some of the best fishing in the world. It's all about what you make of it.

And cheap flights to NY NY

Jo. Don't be so cruel. I have to go. I figure 2 years and I'll be set for a while. That and the bi-monthly trips to Amsterdam and Paris will get me through. Taking one for the team.

I was in Moncton last year on a work related trip for a couple of days. I didn't think it was that bad. The people I met were very nice. While I could not live there myself(not enough hustle or bustle for me, plus they get a lot of snow) one guy I met was from Mississauga and said he loved it there and could not go back. So I guess it is whatever you make it to be.

I'm sorry. I guess that's not really fair. :(

If you heard what happened to me there though, you might understand my feelings about the place.

I'm sure you'll enjoy it there, the circumstances under which I visited were not so good.

Thanks jelliben.
Lookin' for a little reasurrance.

It is what you make of it. I look to have a good time and meet some great people. I think a lot of us get spoled living in T.O. Personally, I don't like Toronto. Loved it when I lived there....served it's purpose but it's time to move on. For me, at this stage of my life, it's about lifestyle. T.O. just doesn't offer it. I'll take my $400,000 and buy a farm and set up my own studio. When I'm hot, I'll take a dip in the pool. T.O. has just priced me out of the market.

I used to travel all the time for work to Moncton. It's ok. It's kinda like a bilingual Ajax. Nice people and cheap cost of living. You can buy a house there for 80 grand. The winters are pretty harsh. However, I used to see/meet attractive women all the time there too.

If I had a choice to move somewhere in the Maritimes it would be Halifax not Moncton. Hopefully they are paying you the same salary. Good luck.

I love the east coast!

So I'm biased and I'll say that I like Moncton :)

They have a mall with a roller coaster in it ;)

m..m: We used to own a place in Shediac.. sold it years ago though :(
A lot of my relatives still live out there.. do you know where Cap Pele is? That's where they are :)

Well, it sure isn't Toronto. I lived in Nova Scotia for 10 years, and never really liked NB. But if you have a car, you can make some road trips to Halifax (AMAZING in the summertime) or to Montreal/Quebec.

Moncton itself isn't the most aesthically pleasing place to live, and they do get a lot of snow. But there are several universities in NB (meaning, not all old people) so if you're looking for a change of pace or a place to get away, Moncton should be all right. Just make sure that you get around in the summer and explore the area - the winters are long and snowy. (Parts of NB got 15cm of snow last Monday.)

I just moved to Welland for a job, and let me tell you, you'll have a lot more time to concentrate on work! :p

I've only been to Moncton once before, but my dad used to live in Saint John, NB. Just be happy that it's not Saint John you're moving to (it smells bad from the mill).

New Brunswick has beautiful places to explore, beaches with the warmest waters north of Virginia, the highest tides in the world, and friendly people.

Moncton specifically has a good waterslide park and an indoor amusement park.

Just be prepared to deal with very snowy winters, a smaller-town life, and a bilingual population.

I'm sure you'll enjoy your time there.
