Our family had a chance to spend one month in St. John's Newfoundland on a work/vacation. I must say on my first visit, I fell in love.....with the people, the countryside and the city! What an absolutely enchanting place!. Now mind you we were there June/July so the weather was lovely. I was told that it is spectacular in the fall as well. My only concern was that you had to be relatively fit to get around without a car as it is very hilly there. We visited a charming place outside of the city called Ferryland, Nfld. what a wonderful picnic you can have in a lighthouse or on the cliffs! www.lighthousepicnics.ca
George Street in St. John's is famous for partiers, you can kiss the cod and get screeched in to get a certificate stating that you are an honorary Newfoundlander! I AM!
Terry Fox is honoured here as this is where he started his journey. Beautiful old buildings sprinkled throughout town and history everywhere. I truly felt very Canadian after my return!
A must on the city list is a place called The Rooms. A museum with three floors and at the top a spectacular view of the city! www.therooms.ca
All in all every one should experience this heaven on earth place! The people are wonderful! The scenery is divine! Go enjoy!

This is not a review of the Visitor Information Centre - we did not go in there. This is a general comment about St. John's and I didn't know where to submit it. I am an excellent navigator and map reader - but I have never been so frustrated at finding my way around a city as I was in St. John's. I couldn't believe the number of streets, corners and major intersections that do not have street signs telling you what street you're on or what intersection you're at. I understand that a single road can have multiple names as it has evolved and joined with other pieces of roads, but to have no visible street signs for a majority of our driving around town was just ridiculous. As much as I enjoyed seeing the "jelly bean" houses and experiencing the oldness of St. John's - I have no desire to return.

Stop in for detailed info about travelling around Nfld. Got info about driving around the Avalon peninsula which was helpful.

As you might expect, there are plenty of tourist brochures, free maps and knowledgeable staff to help you make the most of your visit to St. John's. Additionally, there are restrooms available (ask for the key) for visitors.

The staff gave us some great travel tips. They have many pamphlets, maps and travel guides. They also have some little known travel tips. Well worth the stop!
