The Cape Breton Highlands National Park has some nice views of the ocean and the surrounding area, and is big enough to spend an entire day there, if you make the full trip around it like we did.

Loved the scenery; it was pristine and beautiful! Places like this renew the soul! We went in October and the weather was lovely and the trees were turning into gorgeous oranges and reds! This is a "must see" place!

We bicycled the Park. Nothing not to like, unless you are averse to hills. All sorts of little jewels and surprises, in the park and nearby, like Inverness, Pleasant Bay, Glenora Distillery.

Wide variety of trails, many shorter trails, which allows one to cover more ground and see a variety of ecosystems. We spent four days hiking in the park and would return to do more. Highly recommend to go during Celtic Colour Festival.

In our numerous trips to Cape Breton, we have travelled around the Cabot Trail in fog, in bright sunlight, in light rain and at night. It truly has many wonderful places to stop for food, for souvenirs, for pictures and for whale watching. But the golf -- my goodness it's incredible. As an avid golfer averaging +- 100 rounds per...
