Accomodations in Avalon Area

Jump to last reply

Hello, sorry, this ended up long.

I am arriving in St Johns on August 28th. My intention is to rent a car and see some of the Avalon region before settling down in St. Johns for a few days. I leave from St Johns on Sept. 3. I have booked a Hostel in St Johns for the nights of Sept. 1,2. I would prefer lower priced places, (my hostel nights are $25/night, I know I won't get that low at a B&B but thats okay) and my question is how busy is it during that time? Do I need to book now or can I just phone up when I get to each village? I am leaving on a business trip on Aug. 9th and don't have much time to figure out where I will be going in Avalon.
My second question may seem silly... recognizing that the weather is unpredictable, will I be okay with just runners or do I need waterproof boots?
Silly, I know, but cold wet feet are miserable!
Thanks!!
