Hi Mary Jo,
Here are a couple of sites to give you an overview of St. John's and
They list accomodations, etc. In March, we will probably still have snow since we have accumulated quite a bit in the last month. On the other hand, with our maritime climate here in St. John's, it could rain tomorrow and all the snow would disappear overnight. The weather is always a topic for conversation and debate. St. John's is the oldest city in North America ( it is called the City of Legends) and has a variety of historic buildings; there is a walking concourse through the city including trails along some of the rivers; the waterfront is very accessible and there are tour boats that operate from there ( although I think it would be May before they start their tours, this is about the time of year that the icebergs start to move south through Iceberg Alley ); Signal Hill ( where Marconi recieved the first wireless message ) and Cape Spear ( the most easterly point in North America and an amazing spot where you can gaze out on the Atlantic Ocean and imagine you can see across it to Europe); we have a lively pub scene ( George Street), music, (classical, traditional, etc.)art galleries and exhibitions, theatre, dinner theatre, great restaurants, hockey, and many shops. If you have any questions, I'll be glad to answer them.
