My hotel was right by the Battery, and I never got tired of looking at it -- it's so different, quaint, and fascinating. One of my favorite sights in St. John's.

Pretty area along the base of the rock with colorful fishing shacks and boats. There is also a brewing company located here. Went with Legends Tours, not sure I would want to drive and find a place to park.

One of the tourist attractions on the east side of St. John's. Small harbour with fishing boats. Also has its own microbrewery.

This is a beautiful harbour with quaint houses and even a craft brewery. This is a great place for a stroll on a nice sunny day.
