After surveying 99 different locations, the 2010 November-December issue of National Geographic Traveler named the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland as the top rated coastal destination in the world.
"It is home to one of Canada's oldest cities - the provincial capital of St. John's - a winding coastline dotted with picturesque fishing villages." It is a region of "stunning natural beauty and cultural integrity.  Definitely one of the best kept tourism secrets."

Isn't this the year you discover Canada's best kept secret for yourself?
