Car: Recommended

Downtown St. John's is the perfect combination of big-city luxury and small-town charm. As the oldest and most easterly city in North America, this is where heritage lives. Melded with culture, history, and personality, St. John's has survived two World Wars, five centuries, countless hardships and triumphs. The place has become a rare, old city full of character, experience and charisma, with a contemporary, sophisticated edge.

Wander down the narrow, criss-crossing streets carved by horse and carriage over 100 years ago. Pass the colourful jellybean row houses wedged together in every space lining the sides of steep hills and hidden alleyways. Once you've meandered down to the working harbour of the waterfront, look towards the Narrows and imagine a time when the waters were brimming full with fishing schooners. St. John's is apparently the largest protected harbour in the world-- full details at the Johnson Geo Centre on Signal Hill, an 18 minute mostly uphill walk from 83 King's Road.

Visit Quidi Vidi, our charming village-within-a-city, which still embodies the spirit of an old fishing outport. It is a reasonable walk from King's Road. You can have an informal beer on the deck at the lovely Quidi Vidi brewery, or a meal at the Mallard Cottage. [Phone reservations recommended-- it's very popular.]

From Quidi Vidi, you can hike up nearby Signal Hill, or return to St. John's harbour and walk through the famous Battery, where tiny wooden homes still cling valiantly to cliffsides ravaged by ocean waves. From the Battery you can access a remarkable seaside trail which will take you up to the iconic Cabot Tower guarding the top of Signal Hill. Here, Marconi famously received his first transmission across the Atlantic in 1901. Look out over the cliffs and watch the city's harbour and captivating skyline spread out before you. It is also possible to walk from the Battery to the top of Signal Hill by Road, and walk the trail down. A taxi to the top from King's Road would cost maybe $10.

Perched on the horizon is The Rooms, home to our provincial museum, art gallery and archives, standing next to the striking twin clock towers of the Basilica of St. John the Baptist. The Rooms has a wonderful restaurant with what may be the best harbour view in the world! And this is just a few minutes walk from the front door of King's Road.

As you explore the history of this place, shop at the many fine boutiques, shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs, and art galleries lining our streets.

In the evening, sit back, relax, and enjoy live music or local theatre where actors will whisk you away to another place and time. Be sure to look at lamp post posters for different events-- sometimes the most intriguing events are hard to find on the internet.

For nightlife excitement, head to the famous George Street. Here, clubs, pubs, bars, and restaurants are stacked and crammed. Every evening, George Street blazes with energy, especially during the George Street Festival – five days and nights of dynamic musical entertainment. For more information visit the George Street Association website.

Here in St. John's, courteous and lively people will treat you as friends – willing to send you in the right direction, help you on your way, or even take you there. Always happy to tell a tale, no matter how tall, just to make you smile. Certainly, this city is like no other.
