Whenever I meet someone who has never been to my fair province, first I encourage them to come see us and second, I tell them that I think there’s one time of year that’s better than others to visit Newfoundland for the first time. And that time, my friends, is upon us right now. While there are cool things to do here at any time of the year my own favourite is from early-July to mid-August, when it feels like the province is full of colour and the people most lively. The temperatures finally warm up and we all come out of hibernation. The streets are full of people, the whales come out to play, and every weekend there’s a festival on the go somewhere.
If you’ve got a Canada bucket list, I bet road tripping through Newfoundland is on it. If not, what are you doing? If chasing icebergs, making friends with whales and puffins, hiking inland fjords, and eating the freshest seafood, spotting sea stacks and stunning coastal landscapes, and partying on the street with the most pubs per mile in Canada is your kind of vacation, then you need to road trip through Canada’s easternmost province.

If you couldn’t get a rental car for your visit to Newfoundland and Labrador this summer, don’t worry, all is not lost. If you find yourself in St. John’s without wheels, you can still have an amazing trip. Follow along with my 3-day itinerary and see some of the best the city has to offer.
Halifax is a special place to visit. Whether you’re into history, boats, music, or getting outdoors, there’s always something for you to do in in this Canadian Maritime city of 400,000.

When you think of Prince Edward Island you might first think of red cliffs, the Confederation Bridge, or the sand dunes of the Green Gables Shore.

Despite its small size, there’s a lot to see and do in Prince Edward Island, which you’ll quickly realize if you try to fit the whole province into one vacation.
