    Canada’s answer to San Francisco

    Claiming to be North America's oldest city, St. John's is perched on the clifftops of a sheltered harbor. The city is often compared to a miniature San Francisco, and with its hilly streets and multicolored houses it’s easy to see why. Rather than stay in a hotel, why not take advantage of characterful St. John's vacation rentals housed in beautifully restored Victorian buildings? There’s a vibrant arts and cultural community to soak up, and a lively summer street scene to enjoy. As well as being Newfoundland's biggest city, St. John's is also a great base for exploring the rugged Avalon Peninsula.

    Nature’s playground in St.John’s

    In downtown St. John’s, most of the action is centered along George Street. It serves as the city’s thoroughfare and is lined with an eclectic mix of trendy cafés, British-style pubs, and rum-fueled bars. The atmosphere is infectious, so why not stay local with St. John's vacation rentals just steps from the George Street? The Avalon Peninsula juts out into the Atlantic Ocean which means there are plenty of wildlife watching opportunities on offer. If puffin and whales are on your wish list, head down to St John’s Harbor to book a wildlife cruise.

    History, culture, and knockout views

    Towering above the city, Signal Hill National Historic Site unlocks a wealth of history and sweeping views of the harbor. From a giant squid to ancient artefacts, The Rooms is Newfoundland's flagship museum, art gallery, and archive center. The tiny village of Quidi Vidi is another highlight, home to a pint-sized museum and legendary microbrewery. Beyond its urban attractions, St. John’s serves as a jumping point to the Avalon Peninsula. Whether you want to climb the Cape Spear lighthouse, watch huge flocks of seabirds in Witless Bay Ecological Reserve, or discover colonial history in Ferryland, all are easy day trips.

    Summer fun in St. John’s

    St. John’s is arguably at its best during the summer, when sunlight glints off the harbor and frivolity spills out onto George Street. From folk festivals to royal regattas, St. John’s also hosts a colorful calendar of summer events. Puffin nesting season runs from April until the end of August, with whale watching also at its best in the summer months. Spring is a great time to watch Newfoundland’s famous icebergs, while winter brings wild weather and world class storm watching.

    The edge of North America

    St. John's sits on the Avalon Peninsula, which juts out from Newfoundland’s eastern tip. It backs onto the epic expanse of the North Atlantic Ocean. Excluding Greenland, this makes it North America’s most easterly city. The coast is rugged and windswept which makes it a haven for puffins, marine life, and enormous flocks of seabirds. A string of St. John's vacation rentals dot the Avalon Peninsula, which means you can cozy up in cliffside cottages with sweeping ocean views. If you’re lucky, you could even spot frolicking whales.
