BONAVISTA vs TRINITY as a place to base ourselves ...

We want to spend a couple of nights in either Trinity or Bonavista the 2nd week of June to explore the surroundings. Trinity seems the more popular spot for tourists and Bonavista is described as "bigger" town ... We are basically looking for a quaint place - somewhere that we can find a little something to do at night, a decent place to eat and a cute spot to lay our heads .. any suggestions? Will we be just as happy in either location? Cheers!

If Bonavista is the bigger town......wow......ummmm it's pretty small with not much to do after dark....

Neither Bonavista nor Trinity are exactly teaming with night life!! They are both small towns. But if you want quaint with atmosphere, Trinity has this more than Bonavista. If I couldn't find a place to stay in Trinity, I would not hesitate to stay in Bonavista.

However I am biased as my husband is from the area and we visit often!

Rocky's (sp?) is a fun pub in trinity and has some interesting characters including Rocky himself. You will get a great kick out of the banter and fun here. Even Kevin Spacey gave a "shout out" to Rocky on Letterman! (which he will tell you all about LOL) Enjoy this very basic but fun spot.
