Argentia, Newfoundland Question

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Newfoundland this July. We will be taking the overnight ferry from North Sydney, Nova Scotia, to Argentia, Newfoundland, and arrive around 10:00 in the morning. My question: Would it make sense to spend one night in the Argentia/Placentia area in order to explore the environs (if there are environs worth exploring)? Or should we proceed directly to Saint John's (possibly w/ some scenic detours along the way) and base all our subsequent excursions to the Avalon Peninsula as day trips from there?

Thanks!
