History buffs and culture lovers will enjoy touring the ruins of a star-shaped fort that was vital to the 18th-century struggle between France and Britain over Acadie. Kids can dress up like “gate guards” and patrol the fort’s earthen glacis, casemates and battlegrounds. The site’s wide-open spaces make for wondrous kite flying, bird watching and picnics. You may be rewarded with a sighting of a northern harrier, a bald eagle or a snowy owl!
