To find out why so many travelers favor Newfoundland as a vacation destination, ensure you see a bit more of the wider region. Charlottetown and Trinity are two other places worth checking out while you're in Newfoundland.
Enjoy a moment of serenity at Newfoundland 's cathedrals. Ask those who live in the area their sightseeing recommendations, more often than not they'll point to the region's ever-popular open-air museums and open-air exhibits.
Take your own equipment or rent the gear locally, and make the most of the region's water sports. Fishing is a good activity to try. Another option is swimming. There are times when one of the most effective ways to truly dig below the veneer of a destination is by tapping into the expertise of locals. The region offers a number of wildlife spotting tours and guided nature walks.
Don't forget, if your plan is to be in the region around the 1st of July, Canada Day is widely celebrated then and some attractions may have changed opening hours.
