Burin, or "The Boot" as it is often known, is a picturesque town on the Burin Peninsula in Placentia Bay (south end), Newfoundland and Labrador. It is approximately 318 km from St. John's and has a rich history of settlements from the 18th century. The town's economy was largely dependent on the fishing industry up until the 90s when the cod moratorium was instituted in 1992. Since then, the tourism industry has grown with an interest in heritage museums and bed and breakfasts.

St. John's is the capital and largest city of Newfoundland and Labrador, with a population of 100,646. Located on the eastern tip of the Avalon Peninsula, it is often referred to as "North America's Oldest City". The city has rich ties to the fishing industry which is now in decline. Recently, however, there has been an economic boom with the discovery of offshore oil. The city is culturally and architecturally unique with a vibrant downtown and nightlife and brightly coloured homes.
