The write-up boasts:

12. Corner Brook, Newfoundland
Corner Brook, Newfoundland, is a great historical destination on the Bay of Islands. If your family loves hockey then be sure to plan a visit to the Newfoundland Hockey Hall of Fame for a history lesson on some of eastern Canada’s greatest players. Then meander through the city by following the winding Corner Brook Stream Trail. The trail passes through the downtown area and features the Glynmill Inn Pond where kids can feed a family of swans. For a fantastic panoramic view of the city and the Bay of Islands stop by the Captain James Cook Monument on Crow Hill Road. Adventurous kids should try zip lining—with the Marble Zip Tours thrill seekers can glide down eastern Canada’s longest and tallest zip lining ride while they take in incredible views of the Humber Valley, Steady Brook Falls and Marble Mountain Resort. The whole family can also try the Spider Challenge: a three-storey obstacle course that makes you climb higher and higher on a variety of suspended rope trails. Other family-friendly activities include camping at the Kinsmen Prince Edward Campground and RV Park, canoeing in Tippings Pond or the Humber River and mountain biking.
