Attractions close to the Red Penguin are:

- The fishing villages of Hampton, Port George, and Margaretsville along the Bay of Fundy coast. With their pebble beaches, lighthouses, and tidal pools at low tide to explore, they offer characteristic vistas of the Bay of Fundy. For excellent hiking above the rocky shoreline there are the magnificent trails at Delap's Cove.
- Further along, The Red Penguin can be used as a base for day trips to Kejimkujik National Park. With pristine lakes, rivers and forests it is a paradise for hiking and canoeing.
Other points of attraction further along are day trips to Digby and area to feast on the famous scallops. Superb scenic drives along Digby Neck provide glimpses of an abundance of wildlife and of course there are the popular whale-watching tours.
Another interesting day trip this time heading east is to the area in and around Wolfville, home of Acadia University. Nearby is the important Acadian legacy of Grand Pre Historic Site.
