The oldest city in North America, St. John's is the kind of place where you can stand on Signal Hill watching icebergs drift past The Narrows and then five minutes later be bumping shoulders with suited up business men on Water Street. Houses of every color line almost every street, centuries-old buildings of brick sit on the waterfront, and the funky urban exterior of The Rooms Art Gallery & Museum dominates the skyline. Just like the province it belongs to, St. John's is where old world meets new in a wonderful clash.

Be a local. Wherever you go.
