Although this is a small island, there is still plenty to do in your free time.  My posts designated as PLAY will contain information about things you can do for fun on the island.  These activities are out there and waiting for you to make the most of them.  Some of this information may be posted in broad topics, but I will also post specific locations as well.

Whenever possible I will post the location (map), hours, and cost if any.  Many activities are located in the two major cities, Praia da Vitoria and Angra do Heroismo, but the fun does not stop there.  Do not be afraid to go out and explore.  I have information about many things to do here, but I am sure I will be missing some, so please comment below if there is something you recommend.

This site is designed to be a guide for you while at Lajes, so take some time to read about these activities.  By typing PLAY into the search bar to the right, you will find a list of posts about things to do around the island.  You may also search for something more specific if you have other key words in mind.

What are you waiting for?  Get out there and have some fun playing around on the island!

    I am coming to Terceira in May 2011 as a tourist I suppose, and have found your information very good and easy to understand. It will make my stay all the more enjoyable knowing you have promoted the cafes and restaurants and given the information yourself . I am here in the United Kingdom wishing I was there now

    We are new here in the Island and wants to experience bullsfight, how do we know where there is a bullsfight? do you have schedule for the fights and area? thanks!

      The arena bull fights are posted on signs around in Angra and also sometimes in Praia. The actual schedule is listed each week in the Crossroads, which you can pick up on base or online on the Lajes official website. The only trouble is that this is only posted for the current week, so it is hard to plan in advance. The full schedule for the whole season can be picked up at various places around town, and I have seen them picked up at local neighborhood markets. If you live off base, there is a good chance your landlord can pick you up a full schedule.
