Its restored historic waterfront  and surrounding natural beauty have made Saint John a wonderful  destination. Experience the amazing Reversing Falls Rapids, Saint John's  best-known attraction, when twice daily the powerful tides of the Bay  of Fundy rise faster than the river can empty. When this happens, the  tide attempts to push the river back upstream, then the tide ebbs and  the river appears to reverse itself and flow over the rocks, creating  the appearance of reversing rapids. Visit St. Martin's Sea Caves and  Beach, where you'll see caves carved out by the pounding tides. St.  Martins' twin-covered bridges, harbor area and lighthouse are perennial  favorites with photographers and painters.
