Pitch: Saint John, downtown
I'm going to assume for the large part of the Maritimes the downtown and the waterfront district are going to be the same thing. What I noted about this one is that there were a lot of panhandlers. And I mean a lot, pretty much two per block on both sides of the street, whereas in Fredericton I don't remember seeing even one. It limited my selection of spots, but I don't think it really mattered that much. That's what I'm telling myself at least.
Sidenote: I'm seeing a lot of people playing Pokémon GO. The jury is still out on whether that'll change anything for me or not.
