Moncton Named One Of The Most Underrated Cities

By Allan Dearing Dec 6, 2022 | 4:27 AM

An international travel and lifestyle magazine has put Moncton on the map as one of the seven most underrated cities in Canada.

Condé Nast Traveler noted New Brunswick has garnered a reputation for being sleepy or strait-laced but the province’s largest city is doing its part to change the unfair rap.

Although much smaller, the magazine felt the Hub City is giving Halifax a run for its money for its lively downtown, craft beer scene and the many restaurants within a short walk of the city centre.

In no particular order, Halifax also made the underrated cities list as did Ottawa, Quebec City, Victoria, Banff and Winnipeg.

From the November edition of Condé Nast Traveler:

Moncton, New Brunswick

New Brunswick garnered a reputation for being sleepy or strait-laced somewhere along the way—but the largest city in the province is doing its part to change the unfair reputation for good. Moncton might be a quarter the size of Halifax but it’s giving its neighboring big city a run for its money when it comes to its lively downtown core and craft beer scene. The city of Moncton is home to nearly a dozen craft breweries—from Happy Craft Brewing to Tire Shack Brewing Co—within its compact and highly walkable city limits and you’ll also find more than thirty restaurants within a five-minute walk from the center of town that range from high-end local sharing plates at Black Rabbit to casual neighborhood beer gardens like Euston Park Social.
