Espoo is the second largest city and municipality in Finland. Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Room Escape Games. Change things up with these side-trips from Espoo: Helsinki (Aurinkolahti Beach, Korkeasaari Zoo, & more), Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Norman Travels, get outside with Arctic Expedition, have some family-friendly fun at True VR, and find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
