That means it’s time to start planning your staycation right here at home. There is plenty to do on the island while getting away from the grind. Take a day-trip to Holyrood – there is plenty to see along the way:

  1. Learn about our fascinating natural history at the Manuels River Hibernia Interpretation Centre.
  2. Bring a picnic or grab a bite to eat at the Station Diner along the Conception Bay South Highway (CBS HWY #60), you can even grab a scoop at Bergs Famous Ice Cream!
  3. Join us for the highlight of your staycation – the kids will love piloting a Remotely Operated Vehicle and looking at the creatures on the sea floor or meeting a real live shark! 
  4. On the way home, stop by Topsail beach for a fire and enjoy the sounds of the ocean.
