ex­plore ST. JOHN’S

Best Health - - TRIP - | by JODY ROB­BINS

No one knows for sure how St. John’s got its name, but one of the old­est cities in North Amer­ica has a long his­tory of wel­com­ing vis­i­tors from far and wide. With a no­table num­ber of peo­ple hav­ing de­scended from Ire­land and Eng­land, 97 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion speaks English. (If you’ve ever been to Water­ford, Ire­land, you’ll rec­og­nize the ac­cent.) Cu­ri­ously, New­found­land has its own time zone, set 11/2 hours ahead of East­ern Stan­dard Time.
