St. John’s, the capital of Canada’s youngest province, Newfoundland and Labrador has been welcoming adventurers for 500 years. St. John’s is a storied city whose people hold fast traditions while embracing modern amenities. Rich with history, rife with culture, and sprawling with natural beauty, St. John’s is a city of exaggerated proportions.
Just three hours flying time will bring you to the most easterly point in North America. Being the most easterly point merits its very own time zone, half-an-hour off-kilter with the rest of the world. It is also the only place where crossing of the migratory paths of the humpback whales and the icebergs broken from the glaciers north of Greenland and drifting south, can be seen from land. Cool!
An Urban Experience Like No Other
As you weave through the winding alleyways you’ll encounter fashionistas, chefs and musicians. You will be dwarfed by towering Cathedrals, ancient trees and the harbour’s high peak hillsides and instantly know that the ties to a European past are strong. There is inexplicable sense that you have walked the streets before, a familiarity that can’t be explained and a friendliness of the colourful characters you meet that has to be experienced to be understood.
With the opening of the new St. John’s Convention Centre there has never been a better time to host your event here. Destination St. John’s can help. Put our years of experience of living and enjoying this unexpected treasure, to work for you.
