Hopewell Rocks are busier than ever

Business is booming at Hopewell Rocks.

Canada’s 150th birthday is being given credit for attracting a lot more visitors to the Rocks. Over 230,000 people toured the site last year…and visitation is said to be up 13% so far this year. Guide Kevin Snair says the number of visitors they’ve had is more typical of the height of the tourism season in late July and August….a good sign this season will set a new standard for visitation.
