Devon + Cornwall see + do
Cornwall's Gulf Stream–warmed microclimate makes its beaches quite feasible as summer vacation destinations, and these waters, as well as Devon's, are good for surfing too. But beyond the beach, Cornwall's rugged coastline and leafy north Devon's thatched-roof villages, Georgian towns, and remote harbors are definitely worth a look. There's hiking, horse riding, and cycling in the moorlands, fishing and yachting in the rivers and estuaries, and subtropical gardens and castles all over. This area has always drawn artists, and the thriving arts scene continues, especially with the St. Ives painters of Cornwall and the Tate Gallery.
