It would be an experience for someone who has not experienced northern Canada. I have experience having lived in Schefferville PQ in the 70's. I was not looking to be reminded of that experience.
My wife and I were both impressed how nice a town Stephenville is. Everything about the town reflects proud owner ship. It was very nice to see how so many of the old military buildings had been renovated to modern day standards. Keeping the history but utilizing the buildings for today's living. We've driven past the turn off to Stephenville so many times while en route to and from Port Aux Basque but never took the time to visit. This weekend we were there to visit a Radio Control Model Aircraft event and were amazed at how nice the town is. There will be future visits.
I lived on Ernest Harmon AFB, in Stephenville, from 1960-63, when I was a little girl. My daddy was stationed there. I returned for the first time in 2011 and was absolutely delighted to discover that Stephenville was virtually unchanged--I still knew where everything was, including my "old house" on Florida Loop! I was sorry that the Hudson's Bay store wasn't there any more, and I was sad to discover that the elementary school I'd attended and the old Kippens Bridge had been demolished just a few years earlier; but oh my word, it was so wonderful to see how little things had changed in the 48 years I'd been gone. I had a great time looking at and pointing out all the things I remembered as my husband drove along.
