Posted by SV Golden Glow on Azores main page:
Must do's if you have time on Terceira:
1. go to the local town where there is a "running of the bulls" that particular evening (they move them from town to town). The reason to go is more to observe the way the locals commune around this event than to see the bulls themselves, who are given stimulants and then downers when they are still in their bright red boxes before being released to put on their show.
. Terceira has several interesting caves that are worth visiting, donning the requisite hardhats, and exploring on guided tour.
3. Lastly, driving across the island and enjoying the miles of hydrangeas lining the roads is another not-to-miss experience on Terceira in the spring/summer
