Cupids Legacy Centre noticed by National Geographic

Cupids and the Cupids Legacy Centre have been named one of the 100 Places that Can Change Your Child’s Life. That’s according to a new book by the same name from National Geographic that lists 100 places around the world that author Keith Bellows considers must-see destinations for you and your child. 

In a section called “Continent’s Easterly Edge,” Bellows puts a spotlight on John Guy’s colony, the archaeological dig site, and the Cupids Legacy Centre in his short list of attractions on the Avalon Peninsula.

“Here in the region, we know the significance of our roots and the role Cupids played in the settlement of Newfoundland and Canada,” said Roy Dawe, Chair of Cupids Legacy Inc. when he learned of Cupids’ inclusion. “But to receive an endorsement such as this from such a world-class organization is a real honour—and gives a tremendous boost to our profile outside the province.”

Dawe also congratulated the other attractions on the Avalon recognized in the book, which include the Johnson GEO Centre, the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve and nearby boat tours, and Signal Hill.
