Instagram-worthy spots in Newfoundland
We unsuccessfully tried to find Jellybean Row when we came to Newfoundland.
Turns out, it’s not a specific place – it’s just a name for the cute and colourful homes in Newfoundland!
Take a walk through the neighbourhoods in downtown St. John’s and peep out all the adorable and colourful houses dotting the streets.
Petty Harbour is an adorable little fishing town that dates back as far as the 1600s, and it’s totally Instagrammable.
LOCATION: Petty Harbour-Maddox Cove, NL
Quidi Vidi Lake Trail
The Quidi Vidi Lake Trail was a little frightening in the wind, and I’d definitely recommend doing it on a more calm day.
We got some pretty cool, moody views because of the weather though!
Quidi Vidi is less than 10 minutes from downtown St. John’s.
We stumbled across Tors Cove as we were driving along the Irish Loop Drive, one of the most scenic drives in Canada.
The view was absolutely gorgeous, and photos don’t even do it any justice.
Tors Cove is a tiny village with a population of around 1,000 people!
LOCATION: Tors Cove, NL
Cape Race is a really cool spot in Newfoundland, and it offers up some pretty Instagram-worthy views.
We’d just come back from Ireland when we came here, and the harsh waves, grassy cliffs, and rustic cabins of Cape Race totally made us feel like we were still there.
The Cape Race Lighthouse contains one of the most powerful lights in the world, and it’s actually still being used today.
Fun fact: Cape Race is known for being the first place to hear the distress call from the Titanic!
LOCATION: Cape Race, NL
Ferryland is another cool lighthouse in Newfoundland worth exploring!
The historic town of Ferryland was founded in the 1600s, and it was so incredible walking up the hills and wandering around this old lighthouse.
We had to walk quite a bit from the parking lot to the lighthouse, but it was so worth it.
LOCATION: Ferryland, NL
Is it worth driving an hour out of St. John’s for these cute little cabins?
I mean, do it for the ‘Gram, right?
A man driving by while we were taking photos told us one of these cabins was a children’s library, and it had toys and books inside.
I think the other cabins just had storage inside when we checked!
LOCATION: Cavendish, NL
