Being broke isn't much fun, good thing going to Bannerman Park won't cost you a thing. The perfect activity for a sunny day. 

Cape Spear Historic Site // Cape Spear

Take a day trip overseas to Bell Island. If you've got a little travel bug, there's no place better to be a tourist at home. Be sure to make a pit stop at Dick's  Fish and Chips, too. 

O'Breins Boat Tour // Bay Bulls  

All aboard!!! You won't break the bank on this boat tour and you' can see get to see some whales, puffins, and icebergs. Traveling at home is cool, too. The photo ops are ENDLESS.
