View of St. John's harbor through some trees from Signal Hill
It's a hilly affair, whether you choose to hike the trails or the streets — St. John's boasts over 75 miles of walking trails within city limits. Marvel at the ancient rock cliffs that rise from the St. John's harbor, or amble along the North Head Trail and pick wild blueberries at Signal Hill.
You're in for a toe-tapping good time if you head to historic downtown St. John's. You'll find over two dozen pubs, clubs and bars on George Street. Locals keep the party alive while you get down to an Irish jig, the blues, dance music, country or good old rock n' roll.
Newfoundland cuisine is in a category of its own, with unique items like scrunchions (crispy pork rinds) and toutons (fried dough served with mollasses). Try braised rabbit fritters or local blue mussels. Head to the Quidi Vidi district, where you'll find a local farm-to-table restaurant and a brewery featuring lager made from 25-thousand-year-old icebergs.
Head to Water Street and take a piece of St. John's with you. Heritage Shop goodies include labradorite jewelry, carvings, knitwear and preserves. Get onboard Canada cruises and make your way to Quidi Vidi and check out the Plantation, a destination shopping experience where you can visit artisans in their studios as they work and sell their wares.
