St Johns is the capital of Antigua and the main shopping area that caters for everyone! The streets
in St Johns are always bustling with activity and there are lots of shops tucked away for you to explore. The main tourist
shopping area is Heritage Quay near the main dock where all of the large cruise ships come in. There is of course more to
St Johns that just shops. As you look around you will see all types of buildings from the traditional to the very new and
modern. St Johns Cathedral with its two domed towers dominates St Johns and has been there since 1845, surviving a couple
of earthquakes in 1683 & 1754. Near by is also the Museum of Antigua & Barbuda where you can look at the many exhibits
about Antigua's history.
Another good thing about St Johns is the food. There are various places to eat within St Johns from restaurants
to street side vendors, with all different types of food. There is also the Heritage Market where you will all sorts of fruit and
vegetables for sale (Saturday being the busiest of days). It can get very warm in St Johns especially when there is little or now
breeze, but all you need to do is step into a nearby shop for a cool blast of air con or grab a cold drink from one of the vendors.
With it's shops, history and friendly people St Johns is well worth a visit!
