Visited here as part of a cruise excursion. Very windy the day we were here but views were amazing. Highly recommend. There was a local sitting there with his beautiful Newfoundland dog. What a beautiful dog and a treat to see in person!
We got a cab to Cape Spear. Driver was from Libya and is a graduate student here in food packaging. He agreed to take us out and back for a set price. We went out to Cape Spear and walked to the two light houses, the oldest from 1836. There was not road out here until 1941 when this point was an important defensive position for WWII. Lots of historical information at the site and well worth your visit.
We visited the St. John's Rooms museum on Monday while we was docked for our port day. It was conveniently about a 15 minute walk from the cruise ship dock.
Upon entering the Visitors center we were quickly greeted by a friendly staff member. They were able to quickly provide us with alot of useful information. They pointed out that some parts of the museum were free, and there was like 4 rooms that required a ticket. We decided to not get a ticket because we were on a limited time schedule.
The Johnson Geo Centre is right on the way to Signal Hill and well worth the visit. Built deep into the rock of Signal Hill it the self guided tour is simple with staff available if your have any questions. Don’t miss the walking trials behind the centre.
This was a great visit to a park. The fountain pond was a great place where we had picnic lunch at a picnic table while watching the koi fish and ducks with their ducklings. Lots of trails to walk. Nice little waterfall. Must visit.
Another stop on our free walking tour, it's a bit of a hike from the cruise port, but glad we got to see this historic neighborhood & thrilled that our guide, Amber's able to give us a lot of history & information about it
We stayed across the street from this beautiful local park. It has a pool, baseball field, skating and picnic areas. It seems popular with neighborhood residents and is a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or afternoon snack.
Great place to explore when wandering the downtown area. Right on the waterfront, it has storyboards explaining a lot of the history of the area. Also across the War Memorial so worth checking both out while there.
This is an impressive War Memorial that is very well maintained. Great place to wander and reflect on the various wars that have occurred and be grateful for those who sacrificed all for others. There are other memorials to check out in the City as well that are a little smaller.
