“Wild & Windy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Go at any time but bring a coat with a hood. Don't bother with a hat - it will blow off. Great view and the history is fascinating. I recommend you read up on the history before you go so you can better appreciate its significance.

“Awesome view (when there's no fog!:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Great photo opportunities and views of St John's and and the Harbour. There are lots of walking trails along the ocean but be careful...no railing! It's a must-see tourist attraction in the lovely city of St. John's!
