When I decided to visit Nova Scotia recently, the fortress was on everyone's list of places to visit! A must see & especially this year, the 300th anniversary of the fortress! I started out at the visitors centre & took my time checking out the displays. When I thought that I had seen everything there, I took the shuttle over to the fortress. We walked through the different buildings & imagined what life would have been like 300 years ago. The staff in traditional costume were friendly & answered all of our questions. Some even answered in character! We missed the bread being made, which would have been a nice treat, but there was soo much to see there & it was all soo interesting! For anyone visiting Cape Breton Island & Nova Scotia, I highly recommend taking the time to visit the fortress, you won't be disappointed!
