Things to do in ST JOHNS with kids

Welcome to the very easterly city of North America! Newfoundland and Labradors capital, St. John’s, is a place that kids will love. Right on the ocean, this seaside town is filled with history, sports amazing views of the Atlantic and has incredible character.

St. John’s is a great place for kids to learn (without realizing it!) with all the museums and history. Those transport loving kids will be in their element with the Railway Coastal Museum, and the Suncor Energy Fluvarium lets them into the secret world of how the water shapes our planet.

Want to explore deep underground to learn about the story of our planet? Sounds exciting! Just as well the Johnson Geo Centre to take you on that adventure!

It’s not al indoors of course! Kids can also play and explore one of the most scenic parks in the city - Bowring Park (try and find the statue of peter Pan!) 

It’s a beautiful city to explore - so let’s get exploring!
