ST. JOHN'S TRAVEL GUIDE
LanguagesOfficially English and French
What to eatFish and chips at Ches’s, a fancy meal at Raymonds (one of Canada’s best restaurants!), or a seasonal dish at Mallard Cottage, a cozy, wooden cabin located in a historic fishing hamlet.
What to bring backA certificate from your screech-in ceremony. What’s a screech-in? It’s how you become an honourary Newfoundlander! It involves heading to a pub like Christian’s Bar, imbibing a shot of Screech (local rum), repeating some local phrases, and kissing a cod.
Fun FactLocal lore claims that this coastal city’s colourful houses were painted in bright shades to help guide sailors and fishermen back home through the fog. Fact or fiction, what is true is that the palette now bears the official title of “The Heritage Colours of Newfoundland,” comprised of colours named Ferryland Downs or Mussels in the Corner, and so on.
