We climbed up and the view even in the mist was worth every step. The café had a very interesting assortment of coffees and the visitor center was helpful

The history of this place is amazing. Truly a sight to see. Enjoy the hike around that area. Cannons and guns galore. You can’t go wrong. Dress warm.

What a fantastic way to see St. John's! Wear some good shoes, take a water bottle and go! The north trail is a definite must do.

Very windy. Nice view. Option to have a little walk. Very steep. It's a must if you are visiting St. John. Few minutes away from restaurants. There some bus driving there in certain minutes. Not sure during winter. Other than that, we enjoy going there

To my knowledge you can always drive up to Signal Hill, the shop there will not be open. My first visit was in March and it was cold and windy, the view was awesome.

Yes you can do all of that in the time you have. For a real Newfoundland Pub I would go to the Duke of Duckworth. It off an alley on Duckworth St.
