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.
Family-friendly places like Bellevue Beach and Santalahti Nature Trail will thrill your kids. Step off the beaten path and head to Tulliniemi Nature Path and Vaaksy Canal. Explore Vantaa's surroundings by going to Lohjan Pyhan Laurin Kirkko the Church of St Lawrence Lohja (in Lohja), Porvoo (Söderskärin majakka & Runeberg Park) and Kotka (Sibelius Park, Kotka Sculpture Promenade, & more). Spend the 12th (Sun) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, get a sense of history and politics at Lahti City Hall, let little ones run wild at Laune Central Park, and examine the collection at Directions Lahden historiallinen Museo.
