Things change. The building now houses a gift shop but the area offers up some wonderfully scenic views of the lakes. Take a stroll along the waterfront and enjoy the fishing boats bobbing on the lake..

Great stop to learn about the lakes, why there's called Bras d'Or and how they were formed. The Centre offers greats book about the area, the Cabot Trail and Nova Scotia as well.
