Tell any kid that they’ll be staying at a hotel with a swimming pool and their bags will be packed before you finish telling them where you’re going! A pool somehow makes their stay even more magical and relaxing—get ready for lots of splashing and shrieks of laughter.

Kid-Approved City Activities
What else is there to do with kids in and around the city? Lots!
Petty Harbour Mini Aquarium
Just a 15 minute drive from downtown, you’ll get up close and personal with all sorts of sea creatures thanks to their seven touch tanks! All animals and plants are released back into the ocean areas from which they were collected.
Peek inside a river without getting wet! The Fluvarium’s large viewing windows leave kids wide-eyed every time.
With a movie theatre, beautiful hiking trails, a picnic area, interactive exhibits, a delicious café, and plenty of seasonal activities and events, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy!
Railway Coastal Museum
Got a kid (or adult!) who loves trains? Located right downtown, this fully restored railway station houses over 100 exhibits and displays.
Check out Quidi Vidi Charters to push off within city limits. Or, head up the southern shore to Witless Bay where for summer 2021 O’Brien’s Boat Tours and Gatherall’s have partnered up yet again! Book on either of their websites for a phenomenal excursion.
If the weather is favourable during your stay, be sure to visit one of the City’s fun splash pads! Bannerman and Bowring Park both have playgrounds that get big thumbs up from kids and parents alike.
