Newfoundland's second-largest city, Corner Brook is the hub of the island's west coast. Mountains fringe three sides of the city, which has dramatic views of the harbor and the Bay of Islands. The town is also home to one of the largest paper mills in the world (you'll probably smell it while you're here). Captain James Cook, the British explorer, charted the coast in the 1760s, and a memorial to him overlooks the bay.
The town enjoys more clearly defined seasons than most of the rest of the island, and in summer it has many pretty gardens. The nearby Humber River is the best-known salmon river in the province.
