The port city of Saint John is a unique city nestled on the east coast of Canada that offers plenty of things to do. It’s home to the Stonehammer UNESCO Geopark, with rock formations dating back more than a millennia. Aside from the abundance of nature, its rich mix of cultures is a draw in itself. The city was once controlled by the French, then the English followed by a wave of Irish immigrants in the late 19th-century which ultimately dubbed the city as Canada’s “Irish City”. This blend of cultures can still be seen today and this makes the city a lively spot for many tourists as well as artisans. To make your stay more comfortable, scroll down for the top Airbnbs in St. John, Canada.
