Where is your favorite place in Newfoundland & Labrador, that is a must visit for anyone traveling the province?
Head on up to the Southern Shore, get on Route 10 and enjoy the view. The many small communities filled with delightful people, who will entertain you with story and song. A special place where I grew up is Port Kirwan, near Fermeuse, make sure to go to Clare's Cove, a hidden treasure, I spent many a sunny summer's day exploring it when I was young. And of course, during your journey, be sure to stop into Bernard Kavangh's restaurant in Ferryland, yummy food with a Hollywood view, whale watching while you eat!
What are some must do’s for anyone travelling to the province?
Take in some of the many festivals, ie; The George St Festival, The Shamrock Folk Festival.
If you could give advice to anyone coming to the province for the first time what would you tell them?
being surrounded by scenery, music, delicious food and the friendliest people, I guarantee you won't want to leave and most certainly will return. Enjoy your visit!
