Saint John's, Newfoundland and Labrador
St. Johnís, the capital of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, is a combination of big city luxury and small town charm, melded with culture, history, and personality, the oldest and most easterly city in North America.
This immage shows "jellybean row houses", wedged together in every space lining the sides of steep hills and hidden alleyways.
Tourists enjoy visits to te waterfront, the Quidi Vidi where tiny wooden homes still cling valiantly to the cliff sides ravaged by ocean waves, Signal Hill to the heights of Cabot Tower where military men guarded the shores in 1812, and Marconi made his first transmission across the Atlantic in 1901.
