About Town

Rich and colourful, rugged and refined, St. John’s is the creative capital, and the beating cultural heart of the province. With 500 years of history and tradition woven into our fabric, you’ll also find a new wave of art, architecture, music, and cuisine. Take a guided tour of the colourful cityscape, visit a historic site, gallery, or museum. As the most easterly city in North America, there’s always a pretty impressive ocean view.

Unwind after a day of exploring the colourful neighbourhoods of St. John’s and get ready to tap your toes to fiddles and mandolins in one of the city’s many live music venues. Generations of influence from Ireland and the British Isles make St. John’s no stranger to pubs, pints, and laughs. Fancy something different? As home to one of North America’s premier entertainment districts, we have every variety of nightlife, enjoyed by a genuine mix of locals and visitors alike.

We’d recommend filling your boots with some best kind experiences, and don’t worry you’ll soon learn what that means.
