Staff members have details on attractions, outdoor activities, music, festivals, events
Providing tourists with information.
With the tourism season fast approaching, we are busy getting the visitor information centre ready to welcome visitors from around the world.
The centre will open in mid-June and we will be ready to do our best to ensure that guests to Cape Breton receive the best information on what they should see, do and experience to meet all their expectations while travelling around our beautiful island destination.
The information centre staff is trained to do just that and it is our pleasure to assist guests with their travel needs.
If you are expecting visitors this summer, make sure to stop in at the visitor information centre in St. Peter’s to get your copies of the provincial travel guide as well as Richmond County’s new travel guide and maps. There are so many amazing events planned for the summer that you will not want to miss a single one.
The information centre’s trained staff works hand and hand with event organizers and tourism operators to ensure that we have up to date information on attractions and outdoor activities, music, festivals and events, as these are the features that visitors want to take in before they move on to another area.
Assisting visitors with their vacation needs is our top objective and we try to answer questions on topics of interest including everything from attractions to excursions and best travel routes to “where can I purchase live lobster.”
So have your guests stop in at our information centre right on the main travel route of Highway 4 at 10259 Grenville St. in St. Peter’s with our expected opening date of mid-June.
We regularly see visitors in equal numbers come through our doors from all directions from Port Hawkesbury to the west to North Sydney, Sydney and Louisbourg to the east and from 105 via Dundee to our north.
We are happy to be able to offer our help to visitors with questions on any location to which they are heading and on questions about the area they have come through. It is amazing how many visitors, once they realize that they may have missed a scenic vista or event, will actually travel the extra few miles to return and capture that memory.
We get many visitors returning to say thanks, which makes our jobs so worthwhile. Hope to see you this summer.
I have worked closely with the Richmond County tourism industry and have been a tourism information officer in St. Peter’s for 15 years and I look forward to your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
