This is a beautiful place to see and you can drive right up to the top. I am from New Hampshire and go to St John's every two years and always drive to the top to see the incredible views when I am in town.

The hike up Signal Hill from downtown St. John's doesn't take you very long and it is quite a nice way to spend a few hours. The walk up is pleasant, and when you arrive at the top you are greeted with a magnificent view over the town and the ocean, as well as a well-deserved sense of accomplishment! I highly recommend the trip.

360° views of the city and ocean. Worth the effort to get there. Bring your camera and some good walking shoes for the path.

Ok it is not Disneyland but if you are a history buff this place is a must see. It's free, the interpretative info is good , if a little tired looking. It actually has several different histories related to various conflicts but the coolest part is the upper tower where the first trans-Atlantic radio transmission occurred (Marconi).

Great hiking around the tower but bring all weather clothing because the weather can be foul in a hurry. A must see for every Canadian and everyone else!
