Caernarfon, Wales, is one of the most Welsh of Welsh cities. This walled town is a place where visitors can still hear spoken Welsh.

Caernarfon also has close royal connections—it was there that Edward I's son was made the first Prince of Wales in 1301. Charles, the current Prince of Wales, became prince in 1969.

Be sure to see the castle and museum. Travelers can ride the Snowdon Mountain and Llanberis Lake railways. Caernarfon is 181 mi/291 km northwest of Cardiff and is a great spot for an overnight stay.
