Visiting St. John’s
Dating back to the 16th century, St. John’s is one of the oldest cities in North America, and is packed full of things to see and do. Within easy reach of the city there are endless miles of coastline, beautiful fishing villages, museums, festivals, and lots more. June-July, when we host NLSI, is a particularly magical time to visit. There are often icebergs drifting by at that time of year, and the first of the many whales that spend the summer nearby are arriving in the bays around town. Many of our visiting families spend a few extra days before or after NLSI seeing the sights around town. We definitely encourage that!
For a better sense of what there is to see and do around here, there are some great websites to check out:
Destination St. John’s is your go-to place for the City of St. John’s, with listings of events, attractions, accommodations, and more.
The Newfoundland and Labrador website has tons of information about things to see and do outside of St. John’s.
The Overcast is the local arts and culture monthly, with lots of information about great places to eat, drink, and take in performances.
