As North America’s oldest city, St. John’s has a rich story to tell. Archaeologists discovered remains of Viking villages on the northeastern coast dating back to 1000 AD. The Basques established whaling camps here long before Columbus discovered the Americas. And natives roamed the landscape prior to that, making the Beothuk, Innu, and Inuit amongst the oldest native tribes known to exist in North America.
All this culture can be found amongst some of North America’s most picturesque landscapes and views. Robust waves roll in from the North Atlantic and crash against the craggy shores, often likened to the coasts of Ireland, Scotland, England, and Wales. Icebergs drift by quietly in the spring, heading south after breaking away from the northern seas. Mighty humpback whales swim north in search of food. These majestic sights can be just a stone’s throw away from your St. John’s home.
For hundreds of years, commercial fishing of the vast ocean to the east was the principle contributor to the province's economy. In the early eighties however, exploratory drilling discovered significant reserves of rich crude oil beneath the seabed of the continental shelf within the 200-mile territorial limit. Twenty years later, three oilfields are in production and the economy is booming. Construction is everywhere as the region grows from the new economy. Employment opportunities abound. Even after years of adversity following the closure of the ground fishery due to depleted stocks, the area’s growing prosperity is clearly evident.
Where else can you sip a latte in a downtown coffee house, walk fifteen minutes and watch a humpback whale breach, while standing on a gun battery built in 1700 that protected the entrance to the oldest working harbour in North America?
