New Visitor Centre Hoping For More Tourists In 2014

The Bridgewater and Lunenburg District Visitor Information Centre in Blockhouse saw over 8,000 people last season. The centre was open from May 14 until October 25 at its new location after it moved from the Pine Grove shopping centre. Most of the visitors were from the province with others coming from Quebec and Ontario. There was some traffic from the U.S. and overseas but numbers were low. Manager Denise Penny says they're hoping for more tourists this year.

She says the addition of the Yarmouth ferry should help increase numbers to the area. She's also hoping to include a sign along Highway 103 traveling towards Blockhouse that will indicate their location.
