As the oldest and most easterly city in North America, this is where heritage lives. Melded with culture, history, and personality, St. John’s has survived two World Wars, five centuries, countless hardships and triumphs. It’s become a rare, old city full of character, experience and charisma, with a contemporary, sophisticated edge. “Newfoundland and Labrador

“George Street in downtown St. John’s is two blocks of bars, pubs, restaurants – and nothing else. It’s the centre of the entertainment district and its unique reputation has spread far and wide. It has inspired songs and stories, and has been a magnet for musicians and their fans for decades. Everyone from Ron Hynes to Great Big Sea and Blue Rodeo has played here, either in the clubs and pubs or outside on the main stage for one of the street’s two annual festivals. “Newfoundland and Labrador
