This says it all ...

St. Andrews made the Top 10 Most Beautiful Towns in Canada

Location of KnitEast 2015

St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick

Canada’s oldest seaside resort town, St. Andrews-by-the-Sea is set on the edge of a peninsula pointing south into the Bay of Fundy. Founded in the 18th century by Loyalists, the town quickly became a popular summer retreat for the region’s well-heeled citizens. Around a dozen buildings survive from the town’s origins in the 1700s, while several hundred others date back to the late 19th century. Relatively unspoilt by modern development, the town’s wide, tree-lined streets evoke the atmosphere of centuries past. Water Street, which runs along the shoreline, is lined with appealing restaurants, boutiques, and artists’ studios.
