Weekend in St. John’s | An Historic and Vibrant City

Holiday Duration: 4 Nights

Overview

Overview

People have been visiting St. John’s for over 500 years, but it has far more to offer the weekend visitor than just history! Enjoy the many sea food restaurants, shops and galleries, live entertainment and the Celtic music which has developed a style all of its own since the early settlers arrived from the UK and Ireland in the 16th century. But you can’t ignore the past, and this part of colonial Canada has such an exciting one. Visit Signal Hill (which in 1901, was on the receiving end of the first transatlantic wireless signal by Marconi) and Cape Spear, the most easterly point in North America, better known as the Far East of the Western World.

Also special to this area of Canada is the wildlife, and you will enjoy a whale watching cruise aboard a catamaran.
