St. John`s, the province`s capital, is the perfect combination of big-city luxury and traditional small-town charm. It is one of the oldest and most easterly cities in North America, and has become a rare destination full of character and charisma, with a contemporary, sophisticated edge. There are so many things to see and do in historic St. John`s. From dance to film and everything in between, there is non-stop activity that provides an awe-inspiring array of ways to engage with the arts. The city`s landlocked harbor is approached through a long, narrow channel and is protected by the high hills on which the city is built. Once you`ve meandered down to the harbor, look towards the Narrows and imagine a time when the waters were brimming with fishing schooners. And visit Quidi Vidi, the charming village-within-a-city, which embodies the spirit of an old fishing outport.
