The capital and largest city of Antigua and Barbuda, St John's represents the commercial and touristic center of the twin-island country.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around St. John's: Nelson's Dockyard (in English Harbour), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Saint Philip Parish) and Devil's Bridge (in Willikies). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Valley Church Beach, take in the exciting artwork at Gilly Gobinet Art, stop by Silver Chelles, and contemplate the waterfront views at Dickenson Bay.

Atlanta, USA to St. John's is an approximately 7.5- hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Atlanta to St. John's.
