The view from Signal Hill in St. John’s is fantastic. It is a historic spot where Marconi received the first transatlantic wireless signal – which gave the hill its name. It is also the place of historic battles as Britain and France fought to gain control of this strategic location. Cabot Tower is open to the public with museum, shops, and more to inform and entertain. If you plan on visiting the oldest city in North America then Signal Hill is a must see.
