Fun trails to take to see ocean and harbor. Hold onto your kids on a windy day though and bring your hikers. Brewery fun to go into and grab a pint. Hard to find parking though.

This is a beautiful part of St. John's area and well worth a stop to get a few photos. There is also a quaint spot to stop - the gift and art shop.

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.
