Avalon Peninsula

From the November-December 2010 issue of National Geographic Traveler,
National Geographic voted the Avalon Peninsula the number one Coastal Destination. A panel of 340 experts in sustainable tourism and destination stewardship rates this geographically and culturally representative sample of the world’s waterside locales. I know of lot of people who would agree.

“Admiring Amherst” was taken on the Cabot Tower trail in St John’s, over looking the harbour entrance and Fort Amherst lighthouse.

The area’s beauty is not limited to the city. Take for example……

If I had to pick the storybook Newfoundland community I would pick Brigus. I just love its little canals and tiny narrow streets!

Yeah the Avalon Peninsula is a great place.
