Carbonear








Carbonear

Carbonear is located in Conception Bay along the Baccalieu Trail. With a population of approximately 5000, it is a much larger community than I have been showing for the past 30 days. As well, since it is an service centre for many communities in the area, it boasts shopping malls, box stores, coffee shops, restaurants, banks, grocery stores, museums, historical buildings, several churches and a hospital.
