Hmmm, we had trouble keeping this down to a readable length! Fact is, there is an amazing range of sightseeing, history, and cultural experiences within a few minutes’ drive of Hometel. Here are just a few ideas, but if you’re looking for something else, check with our Front Desk staff or look over the tourism brochures in our lobby. The possibilities are endless!
We’ll start as far east as you can go without crossing the North Atlantic… Cape Spear National Historic Site. Home to one of the most storied and photographed lighthouses in eastern Canada, this iconic spot still has remnants of World War II gunnery outpost and breathtaking views of the rugged Newfoundland coastline.
Enjoy golf? The St. John’s area features several courses, each with their own unique personality and skill levels. Ask our front desk for details on each. Or if you prefer to stop and smell the roses, you’ll find them along with plenty of other flowers and plants at MUN Botanical Gardens.
Get up close to aquatic life at the Petty Harbour Mini Aquarium, or just take in some astounding scenery at Middle Cove–Outer Cove, Bay Bulls–Witless Bay, or countless other vantage points.
Hike along the prehistoric fossil beds of the Manuels River Experience, or if you’re a serious hiker, lace up your boots, grab your protein bars, and venture out on the East Coast Trail and its 400 km of sometimes easy, sometimes rugged pathways meandering along the edges of amazing North Atlantic cliffs.
Whatever your preferences may be, you will find plenty to love within a short drive. Your stay at Hometel is a stay that will stay with you a lifetime!
