St. John’s, Newfoundland
At first glance, North America’s most easterly city may have a West Coast semblance (the colourful row houses and hilly terrain are San Fran–esque), but St. John’s has a personality all its own. Standing here since the 16th century, it remains true to local traditions, from the salt–cod cuisine to quirky Christmastime mummering (making house calls to friends, dressed in disguise).
