The Cupids Legacy Centre from

Several Newfoundland attractions on the Avalon Peninsula have been highlighted in a new book from National Geographic.

Among them, Cupids and the Cupids Legacy Centre have been named one of the "100 Places that Can Change Your Child’s Life."

This designation is in a book by the same name from National Geographic that lists 100 places around the world that author Keith Bellows considers must-see destinations for parents and children.  

In a section called “Continent’s Easterly Edge,” Bellows focuses 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, chairman of Cupids Legacy Inc. “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 congratulates other attractions on the Avalon recognized in the book, including the Johnson GEO Centre, the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve and nearby boat tours, and Signal Hill.
