Cute and quaint area of St. John's. This top 20 ranking has this duplicated as 10 and 17. If both were combined it would make this area higher in ranking. The local name for this area is Quidi Vidi Battery. Please combine the two.

Our McCarthy city tour took us to this beautiful spot where the fishermen were processing their daily cod catch. We saw some salt cod drying.

Checked out town based on recommendations. Sort of quaint. Mostly just the brewery. Taken over by tourists. The older buildings are mostly in disrepair. There are other cute towns along the coast that are worth the drive but this is the closest to St. John's.

Quidi Vidi is a gorgeous little spot where you can simply sit and enjoy nature. There is a brewery and a couple of nice spots for dinner. We walked from our B+B on Military Road and it took about 45 minutes to get there. It...More

We went there to take the brewery tour, but were too late. It closes at 5 but the last tour starts at 4. Bought some Iceberg beer anyway and must say, I loved it! Not cheap, but worth the $. The location is a picturesque...More
