We are such a unique province and town, and we just LOVE to show it off. Trying to figure out all the places you want to bring your friends from out of town, and out of province can sometimes be a little challenging. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, landmarks and other hidden gems we want to show our CFA's. (Come From Away)
It's our mission to show our friends and family who are visiting a good time. Here are our favourite St. John's activities. Below is a list of fun places to bring your friends in the city that you, as a local, will enjoy as well. After all, being a tourist at home will never get old.
Signal Hill // 230 Signal Hill Rd
You'll catch a glimpse of Signall Hill before landing in YYT. Taking someone who has never been here, to Signal Hill is a no-brainer. A must. The city shines brightly from the tip-top of Signal Hill.
Why not frolic about on the most Easterly point in North America? Cape Spear is one of those places you have to show off. It has a lot of history and some scenic views. Take it all in, on the edge of the East Coast.
Make sure if it is their first time visiting, they get the royal Screech-In ceremony. One does not simply visit Newfoundland without kissing the cod. George Street is home to MANY little pubs and bars that would be happy to help.
Spirit of Newfoundland // 6 Cathedral St
A night of pure entertainment gold can be found at Spirit of Newfoundland. A world class dinner theatre showcasing many of our local talents and telling stories of Newfoundland that we love to share. You can also check out their screech room for another Screech-In ceremony, and taste a piece of screech cake to boot.
This picturesque little town is something to show off, alright. There is so much history here and it is such a beautiful sight to see. If you're passing through this Summer, you have to stop by the Country Cafe for an original Blueberry Crisp.
EVERYONE wants a photo with this road sign, we know. So do your traveling friend a favour, and take the trip out of town to Dildo.
The Duke of Duckworth // 325 Duckworth St
Did you even go to Newfoundland if you didn't have fish and chips? Probably not. You need to try them at the Duke of Duckworth.
The Johnson Geo Centre // 175 Signal Hill Rd
A dream come true for science and history lovers. There is so much history to this province, that it only makes sense you make this a stop on your St. John's tour.
Middle Cove Beach // Middle Cove
You have to take someone visiting Newfoundland to the beach, it's only fair. We're surrounded by ocean, sometimes we take it for granted. Traveler's love to see our beaches, so let's show them off.
The Rooms // 9 Bonaventure Ave
The Rooms is home to some beautiful art and some beautiful views. This is a definite on any St. Johns travel itinerary. You will 100% want to grab lunch at the Rooms Cafe and just admire the city, too.
