Salvage named among Canada's 10 prettiest towns
{August 31, 2001}

For those who have been to Salvage, its beauty is no secret.

Now the rest of the country knows about the jewel of the Eastport Peninsula.
Harrowsmith Country Life recently named Salvage one of its Top 10 prettiest towns across Canada.

This marks the fifth year running a Newfoundland community has been chosen. Salvage got the top photo spread to lead the article, with the headline reading "My kind of town."

Community officials are hoping the article will serve to generate further tourism visitations to Salvage, long a favourite destination of photographers and bus tours.

"Salvage (second syllable rhymes with cage) may be too rustic for some; it's certainly out of bounds for anyone who can't function without a Starbucks on the corner. To make the town a destination, you have to want to get really far from the madding crowd," the article states. Java maniacs were quick to point out that St. John's - sadly - does indeed have a Starbucks.

The community has long been known for its neatness, a matter of civic pride and tradition with its residents.

Other Newfoundland towns named by Harrowsmith in the first four years of the survey were Trinity (1998), Heart's Content (1999), Grand Bank (2000) and Dildo (2001).

Every year the magazine holds a contest in conjunction with the 10 prettiest towns survey. This year, the prize is a week-long trip to Newfoundland and Labrador.
