I am planning a trip to NL in July. My husband and I are spending 4 nights in St. John's and doing some driving around Avalon to see the sights. (Cape St. Mary's, etc.) We fly to Deer Lake very early in the morning on July 10th and we leave Deer Lake to return home on Monday the 15th. So we will have 5 full days but need to be back in Deer lake by Sunday Night.
We plan to spend at least 2 nights and most of 3 days in Gros Morne park. We will do some short hikes, and we are in decent shape but not avid hikers. We were thinking of going to Lanse aux meadows area for the last 2 days. So, a couple of questions:
1. What are the must- sees in Gros Morne area if we have the better part of 3 days?
2. Where should we stay while we are there? Not a big B and B fan, would like to be near the water if possible.. I have been looking at guide books etc but the choices are overwhelming!
3. Where is the best place (which town) to stay if we are going to spend one night somewhere between Gros Morne and St. Anthony? Thought it would be good to break up the drive on the way there.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am having a hard time planning the second half of our vacation.
