If you love the great outdoors, there's a good chance you'll feel right at home in Cornerbrook, N.L.

That's according to a recent survey by Herald Magazine, which outlined the best places to live in Atlantic Canada.

The city  boasts 42 kilometres of cross-country skiing trails, hiking, lots of places to swim and breathtaking scenery.

That's a lot to see and do for a city with only 20,000 residents.

The average Corner Brook house costs $205,291 -- which seems incredibly affordable when compared to southern Ontario, where the average home is going for $523,026 in the Toronto area.

Corner Brook isn't the only community that made the list: Stratford, PEI was voted best for retirement living, Saint John, N.B., is the place to be for information technology and Bridgewater, N.S. was voted the best community for young families.
