St. John's Vacations
St. Johns, the oldest city in North America, has grown from a fishing village into the capital and largest city of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. With a historic downtown, interesting museums and cultural institutions, and many fun festivals throughout the year, St. Johns vacation packages are an ideal choice for history buffs and anyone drawn to picturesque coastal locales. Families will also find fun things to do on a St. Johns vacation.
Explore St. Johns on foot, taking in the brightly painted heritage buildings that line cobblestone streets in its historic downtown. The most-visited landmark in St. John is Signal Hill, a National Historic Site and location of the circa-1897 Cabot Tower. Enjoy views over the city and along the Atlantic coast from the top of the hill. Another National Historic Site, Murray Premises, is within walking distance of many St. Johns hotels . Discover the cultural heritage of the region at the Provincial Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador, and about its railroad heritage at the Railway Coastal Museum. The Johnson GEO Centre takes you underground to explore the region's geology -- the only part of the museum above ground is its distinctive glass entryway.
