Places to visit 

In St. John's

If you would like to buy NL crafts, two great places are:

-Cuckhold's Cove is a beautiful ocean lookout, hidden right in town. There is also a trail that goes from Cuckhold's Cove to Signal Hill. 


-NOT for the kids! But great for adults:"Haunted Hike".


Near St. John's


-Cape Spear. The most easterly place in Canada. You can go to the old lighthouse keeper's house as well. 


-Petty Harbour mini aquarium - Small, but great for kids and located in a beautiful fishing village.


-Salmonier Nature Park - a great chance to see the wildlife that lives outside our city. The walks are mostly boardwalks and can fit a stroller along them. 


-Middle Cove - a beautiful natural beach. It's legal to have a bonfire there. 


A bit farther, but worth going to

-Ferryland and the Colony of Avalon

-Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve (bird sanctuary) - (Note: this is along cliffs, so you will need one adult per child to hold on to them tightly).


-Mistaken Point - This is an amazing experience!

It's a challenging 3 km hike and you can see actual fossils on the ocean cliffs. NOT safe for younger children. However, a very worthwhile trip for adults!


-Boatrides to see the whales. There are many such rides offered within half an hour/45 minute drive from St. John's.
