About St. John's

St. John’s is a special place. We’re the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the province’s largest city, but despite that, this city has a distinctly welcoming feeling.

You’ll want to dress for the weather, which can change. A day in October can be sunny and warm, then windy and cool, then a bit rainy, and then warm again, all within a few hours. We recommend lots of layers, including a waterproof jacket and sturdy footwear for exploring Signal Hill.

That said, there are plenty of places to dress up too (we don’t wear rubber boots all the time!). St. John’s has a reputation as a musical city and is also becoming more and more well known for our restaurants. We recommend that you book well in advance at some of the hot spots (including place like Raymonds and Mallard Cottage.) In most situations though, you should also be able to find a welcoming and tasty spot to eat just walking in off the street.

For more information about planning your trip, we recommend that you take a look at the Provincial Government’s tourism site or the City of St. John's tourism destination page.
