An interesting area with rich history. Very much worth a visit. I visited on foot and the area was a comfortable walk from my hotel.

Don't miss a visit to QV when in St. John's. Beautiful, quaint and full of charm. Be sure to check out the brewery Friday nights for their kitchen party.

What a terrific time we had. The beer was delicious, the view fantastic and the music great for dancing. We had a blast and the trip was worth it just for this special place. The people were friendly and fun. Wish we could go again.
