What to do with day in Louisbourg?

We're staying a day in Louisbourg (starting the day at the Hampton Inn), coming from several days around the Cabot trail.

We will definitely spend 3-4 hours at Louisbourg Historic Site. Looking for ideas to spend the rest of the day. We will likely end the day at a hotel or B&B around Port Hawkesbury, so need ideas between the park ant Port Hawkesbury.

Just a couple - we like most everything - hiking, scenic drives, lighthouses, museums.

There is some information here: tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g154967-i326-k56810…

You may find you will want to spend at least four hours at Fortress Louisbourg. Eat at the pub or even better the restaurant that immerses you into dining in 1744. Talk to the people in the various buildings taking on the roles of actual people who lived in Louisbourg. You can learn a lot about life in those days.
