The Water Street in Downtown St. John's claims to be the oldest street in North America. With a history that dates back to early 1700s, Water Street started out as a trading hub for many European importers and exporters. Following the Great Fire of 1846, the street took a dynamic commercial turn when many of the still-surviving commercial structures lined up its sides. Now home to a large number of high-end businesses like restaurants, boutiques, souvenir shops, Water Street is a hugely popular tourist spot.

The St. Patrick's Church in St. John's was built over a period of more than twenty five years. Although the first cornerstone was laid in 1855, due to technical and financial difficulties, the church couldn't be consecrated until 1881. Designed by the Irish architect J.J. McCarthy, the structure sports a unique Neo-Gothic facade. Over the years, many additions have been made to the church building, although the original design remains largely unchanged. Deemed a National Historic Site in 1990 and the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador in 1997, it makes for an interesting visit.
