“I want to go back when it is warmer and busier.”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

A chilly late spring Tuesday evening was probably not the best time to get introduced to George Street. It wasn't very busy; a lot of places weren't even open. That did, however, give us a chance to get a look at the restaurants, pubs, bars and entertainment places and come back later in our stay. I could only imagine how busy the place would be on a summer evening or weekend. You can see the places where artists play live as you walk around. I have to go back someday.

“Better to go at night”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

We visited George street in the middle of the afternoon on a Friday. The street itself is nothing that interesting, other than the fact that it has such a high concentration of pubs, but I imagine at night with large crowds of people it would be a more impressive sight (when we went it was fairly dead). Still a must see when visiting downtown St. John's.

“GREAT!”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

I spent every night of my 6 night stay on George street. There is so much to see and do (and drink). Really great. WARNING: on Canada Day, they charge you $20, just to walk onto the street. Every other day of the year it's free.
