Known for its rolling, green hills, dairy farms and covered bridges, Sussex is the gateway to the Bay of Fundy, Fundy National Park, Hopewell Rocks and more.  The winter season is alive with downhill and cross-country skiing at Poley Mountain and snowmobile trails.

Explore the quiet downtown streets of this charming town, and you will find quaint restaurants, unique shops, ice-cream stands, tea rooms and museums.  You will see many larger-than-life murals depicting local history and events on the sides of buildings.

Sussex is a community where families can raise their children in a safe, close-knit environment with a reasonable cost of living.
