Trinity is one of the jewels of Newfoundland. The village's ocean views, winding lanes, and snug houses are the main attractions, and several homes have been turned into museums and inns. In the 1700s, Trinity competed with St. John's as a center of culture and wealth. Its more contemporary claim to fame, however, is that its intricate harbor was a favorite anchorage for the British navy. The smallpox vaccine was introduced to North America here by a local rector. On West Street an information center with costumed interpreters is open daily mid-June through October. Please keep in mind there is no grocery store, and restaurants are not open late at night. Plan ahead when traveling to small communities so you do not end up waiting until morning for a meal.
