Grab a Local Brew
My road trip starts here, in one of the oldest cities in North America, St. John's—a historic shipping and fishing hub with
a working harbor. I walk down famed George Street, known for having the most bars packed on a half kilometer in North America.
The people-watching is addictive: Flanked by a rainbow of buildings, the road is closed to vehicles at night and fills with groups walking hand in hand, dipping into dive bars such as the red-brick Yellow Belly Brewery & Public House and hanging out on outdoor patios. It feels a bit like Mardi Gras as laughter floats through the crowd along with guitar riffs from a live band and the smell of fried pub fare.
