What is downtown? Whether working, living, or just visiting for the weekend, the Downtown Development Commission has the website for you: downtownstjohns.com.
I recently found this site on one of my daily internet purusing sessions and thought, hmmm, maybe I should let other people know about this. Why not right? I’m also a huge fan of John Atkins & Co.‘s web design, who, you guessed it, designed the very website I’m discussing. They constantly turn out highly efficient, clean, and innovative web sites, and this one is no exception.
With stunning photo’s from local photographers streaming at the top of the home page, it makes downtown St. John’s look exactly how it feels, warm and welcoming.
The website offers great tips on parking, has an amazing virtual map of the downtown area, and it also has a great directory that lists everything from accommodations to wedding supplies.
Downtown business owners are even allowed to promote their companies free of charge; all you have to do is become a member.
It’s attractive to tourists because it outlines places to shop, events, and plenty of other things to keep one occupied while visiting. And for the bored locals, maybe you’re not looking for excitement in the right places, so check it out.
