St. John’s offers an urban experience like no other. A port city that rises dramatically from the ocean and hugged by endless coastlines will greet you, as will a host of colourful characters whose vernacular will have you both smiling and curious. St. John’s has an eclectic sophistication, interesting culinary delights with wide open spaces and outdoor adventures right on its doorstep.
Experience the youngest, coolest province in Canada, with the oldest street in North America. Everything is little off kilter but oddly familiar — it must be experienced to be understood. Why not come early or stay late and make the most of your time in St. John’s.
