We Need Viewing Domes In Key Tourist Destinations

A while back I wrote a post about “5 Ideas To Boost Tourism In Newfoundland & Labrador” and my number one ideas was to have glass or plastic viewing domes at key locations. Places like Cape Spear, Signal Hill, Bonavista and so forth could really use a wet and winter weather stable viewing spot.

With the amount of wild weather we get here, there’s a need to make viewing the landscapes during these times more comfortable and I think these would be a smart addition to the tourist attraction list here.

With the use of solar, wind and other power options you could easily build these domes with charging stations, vending machines, heating and other features like tables for having a snack while you watch. I think adding these viewing domes in select locations around Newfoundland & Labrador would be a huge hit.

Why We Need Viewing Domes

It all comes down to wind, rain and snow. We get plenty of it and this means our tourism season windows are smaller, but they don’t have to be. For example, in Tofino, people come from all around the world to sit in hotel rooms and oceanside restaurants to just sit and watch storm surges hit.

Storm watching in Tofino is a popular activity during the winter months, typically from November to February. The region experiences dramatic weather, including gale force winds, giant waves and moody skies, making it an exhilarating experience for visitors. Some recommended locations for storm watching in Tofino include Cox Bay Beach, Chesterman Beach, and the Wickaninnish Inn, which offers amenities such as rain gear and rubber boots for guests. It’s important to prioritize safety and be cautious of the powerful coastal conditions when engaging in storm watching activities. The Tofino area also offers a variety of other activities and attractions for visitors during the winter season, making it a unique and dynamic destination.

People book a year in advance to get their spot and I don’t see why we cannot push for this to encourage more winter and fall month travel.

What Is Storm Watching?

Storm watching is a popular activity during the winter months, typically from November to February. It involves witnessing dramatic weather conditions, such as gale force winds, giant waves and moody skies.

Visitors can experience the thrill of the ferocious weather from the beaches or even from the comfort of oceanfront accommodations. Newfoundland and Labrador’s stormy weather offers a unique and exhilarating experience for those interested in observing the power of nature during the stormy season.

Newfoundland Viewing Dome Concepts

Here are some more glass or plastic viewing dome ideas I had created with the help of AI recently and I’d really like to hear feedback on this idea, and perhaps make some noise and get it in front of our tourism board. Think it’s stupid and not feasible? Well let me know that in the comments as well.
