Though technically its own city, Vantaa is considered by many to be a Helsinki suburb, and it is where most visitors land when they fly to Finland.
Head to Old Market Hall and Boss Shopfor some retail therapy. You'll get in some beach time at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Step out of Vantaa to go to Espoo and see Nuuksio National Park, which is approximately 40 minutes away. There's still lots to do: stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, and look for gifts at Marimekko.
