HELP New to Newfoundland and Labrador -Summer Vacation

I would like to visit Newfoundland and Labrador this summer with my family. I have never been there. We are hoping to rent a summer home on a beach, close enough to town to cycle to. We like old pubs, dance halls, good food, nature etc. Does anyone have any suggestions as to a nice place to go?

Get a copy of Lonely Planet Nova Scotia, New Brunswick & Prince Edward Island. It has a lot of information about Newfoundland and Labrador in it.

Have a look at this website:

http://www.newfoundlandlabrador.com/

Get a copy of 2010 Traveller's Guide Labrador and Newfoundland by clicking on "order Traveller's guides' from menu on left hand side and fill in the form.

This has details of accommodation, different driving routes and details of things to do.

You should check out Eastport, it’s a beautiful town with an amazing sandy beach and several rental properties. Also, next week there's a new website being launched for that area called

http://www.AdventureCentralNewfoundland.ca

You may want to check that out as well.

I strongly suggest you get a good guidebook, send off to Nfld Tourism for their tourism guide, do some research and then come back here. Newfoundland is huge and for the most part quite different from the rest of Atlantic Canada.

cheers- Jerry
