7 days in Baddeck

We plan to visit Nova Scotia in mid June 2007, setting up base camp in Baddeck and exploring Cape Breton Island.
Our itinerary includes visits to:
  • Cape Breton Island National Park
  • Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site
  • ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE

What else should we see?

The Cabot Trail is a must and I'm sure you have plans on touring the whole island.I've heard the Cape Breton Miner's Museum is interesting in Glace Bay.You can tour an actual mine if that's of interest to you.

ALL OF IT

7 days is just enough time to make you want to go back , you're going to love it.

If you camp in Louisbourg you can get a special pass for the fortress.

We did the same trip in 99 with our Coleman Pop Up. Funny thing... We spent the last hour completing the Cabot trail drive following an Airstream. I think it was then we decided to start looking for a bullet.

Here is a pic of our rig on the Cabot trail in Sept of 99. The image below was at a National Park but I can't recall which one.

Cabot trail and NFL

This is a beautiful area. We were there this summer for 16 days. Loved every minute of it.

Wildlife is abundant and easy to spot. Whale watching is incredibly fun for all the family. If you're not sea sick take the zodiac from Pleasant Bay. Unforgettable, the girls still rave about it!!! Stop at Andrea's for a giant burger for less than back home. Lousy service, good burgers.

Once there drive a few miles North (without the AS) to the Buddhist monastery and take the complimentary tour. Worth every minute very educational, spiritual and peaceful.

Cheticamp is a perfect base for your northern hikes and tours. It also offers plenty of evening entertainment for all ages.

Another great spot is Meat Cove at the northern tip of the island. Make sure you leave the As back at the campground and spend a tent-night there. It's breathtaking. Bring a bathing suit.

All the trails are extremely well organized and set up. Some are popular and crowded but still worth it.

If by any means you have the chance to extend your stay make sure you drive to Sidney and take the ferry over to Newfoundland. An amazing place of spectacular rugged beauty.

If you have any questions feel free to email us. I'll include some pics.

If you like big trains like I do then the "Orangedale Railway Museum" off highway 105 is a must see. Also, a neat bridge (ok its a RR bridge) to check out is near Baddeck at Grand Narrows. Right in Baddeck you should have a meal at the "Silver Dart Lodge." I especially like the Buffet Breakfast! Finally, try to drive the road which traverses the Highlands Park. It's a very nice drive with good scenery. It basically goes from Cheticamp to Ingonish. Make sure to stop at the "?s" as they are a wealth of information and very helpful. Have fun!!!

Ready, Set, GO!!

Well it sure seems like a long time ago since I first started this thread. We leave for our three week trip on Saturday. Tonight I bring home Excella and we start packing.
My wifeís parents were from Nova Scotia so we will be looking for traces of her people. We will be using Mac Leodís in Inverness as our home base.

On the road again!!!
