Our Story

St. John’s may be one of the oldest cities in North America, but its playful spirit can be felt everywhere.  From our people to our houses, colourful experiences are boundless.

Perched on the most easterly point of North America, St. John’s is an urban basecamp to explore the natural wonders, awe-inspiring attractions and the quirky city we call home.

Because St. John’s has been welcoming visitors for 500 years, we know a thing or two about making sure you feel right at home. While here, expect to receive a warm welcome and hear a few tall tales from locals who are known for their storytelling. Put simply, St. John’s is the fusion of old and new, rugged and refined; making it the perfect place to write your next story, article or blog!

In St. John’s, why paint the town red when you can choose any colour you like?
