Vantaa
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.
Kick off your visit on the 24th (Thu): appreciate the extensive heritage of Castle Hill, then examine the collection at Porvoo Museum/Holm House, then browse the different shops at Kauppakeskus Jumbo, and finally enjoy some friendly competition at Flamingo Entertainment Centre. On the 25th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: revel in the low prices at Fazer Experience Visitor Centre, get your bearings at Gumbostrand Konst & Form, then stroll the grounds of Tuusula Church, and finally buy something for everyone on your list at Kauppakeskus Willa.

To find reviews, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Vantaa trip itinerary app .

Helsinki to Vantaa is an approximately half hour train ride. You can also drive; or take a bus. In May, daytime highs in Vantaa are 60°F, while nighttime lows are 42°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) early enough to take a train to Helsinki.

Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
You'll explore and learn at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Hakaniemi Market and Market Square Kauppatori. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Bellevue Beach (in Hanko) and Raseborg Castle (in Raseborg). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, stop by Digelius Music, and explore the wide array of goods at Stockmann's Department Store.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Helsinki is just a stone's throw from Vantaa. In May in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 60°F during the day and 43°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
