St. John’s Newfoundland Hot Tub Covers
Welcome to the capital city of Newfoundland and Labrador. It is also the province’s largest city, with a population of nearly 200,000. St. John’s is the oldest city in North America, having been discovered by John Cabot in 1497. It is located in the Avalon Peninsula, along the Atlantic Ocean, in southeast Newfoundland. This is one of the most unique cities in all of North America and one you will want to visit again and again!
The first thing you’ll notice about downtown St. John’s is the colorful array of buildings, especially on King’s Road. Bright blue, red, green and orange homes add a picturesque landscape to the city. You won’t find any high-rise buildings here either; the town council has strict rules regarding the height of a structure in order to preserve the city’s culture and heritage.
Life in St. John’s is very laid back, but you’ll still be able to find big city conveniences like shopping malls. The Avalon Mall is St. John’s largest, and you’ll find everything from clothes for the kids, to footwear and even spa covers.
One of the most popular tourist attractions is Signal Hill, which overlooks the city of St. John’s. Cabot Tower is located on the hill, which was built in 1897 to commemorate John Cabot’s discovery of Newfoundland. Signal Hill is a Canadian National Historic Site and attracts tourists from all over the world. For a night of mystery and intrigue, try the “Ghosts of Signal Hill” walk, as your guide recounts tales of murder, ghost ships, buried treasure, and headless phantoms.
Just a short drive away is the Cape Spear Lighthouse, which is the most easterly point in all of North America. The lighthouse is also the oldest lighthouse in North America. You can see Signal Hill from across the water, and you might also catch a glimpse of a humpback whale or two!
The East Coast Trail offers hikers of all levels a unique look at the outermost shores of the coast. It spans more than 500 kilometres and winds through towering cliffs, and all kinds of terrain. Access is provided to lighthouses, abandoned settlements and the natural wave-driven geyser called the Spout. This is one hike you don’t want to miss!
St. John’s doesn’t have an official NHL hockey team there are plenty of hockey fans to be found here. It is Canada’s national sport, after all. Many locals are Montreal Canadiens fans, and you’ll also find some Toronto Maple Leafs fans as well. Some like to show their support for their favourite team in the form of NHL licensed spa covers for their hot tubs. This shows their entire neighbourhood who they’re cheering for!
There are a variety of outdoor activities that can be experienced from one of the many parks located in St. John’s. No matter what time of year you visit, you’ll be able to hike, ski, bike, and roller-blade. If you love water sports, try scuba diving and explore the many shipwrecks and sea life that the ocean has to offer.
