Four reasons to visit St. John’s according to Sarah Parker Charles

The renowned interior designer and proud Newfoundlander gives us four very good reasons to come and visit ‘’The Rock’’.

Sarah Parker Charles, host of one of our ‘’One of the Family’’ video, renowned interior designer in St. John’s and proud Newfoundlander, gives us four very good reasons to come and visit ‘’The Rock’’.

The people

We are very proud of our province, of Newfoundland, and everyone here wants the visitors to enjoy their trip. We all feel so passionate about our province; we want others to feel the same. It’s a feeling that is hard to put into words, but I think that when you come and you experience it first-hand, then you go, OK, I get it.

The culture

St. John’s is a strong cultural community, may it be visual arts, music.

The food

We are well known for our restaurants (Terre Restaurant, The Merchant Tavern, Raymonds, Mallard Cottage) here in the city. People always say that they come here to eat. As the weather is not always our friend, we are inside a lot, so people are very social. Drinking and eating, at home or at the restaurant, is a big part of our culture.

The Outdoors

It’s absolutely spectacular. We have some of the most beautiful hikes and trails and scenic views in the world. You are going to see whales, icebergs and birds. It’s very dramatic coastline. Coming here, it’s getting back to nature, back to your roots. It’s a very relaxing place to come.
