Cape Breton Gay Guide – Cape Breton & Sydney NS Gay Pride 2019

Planning a romantic vacation to this rugged and wildly beautiful island in northeastern Nova Scotia

Cape Breton Island

This sparsely populated, wildly rugged island on the tip of Nova Scotia feels like the end of the earth—especially the windswept trails at Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Along the meandering 185-mile Cabot Trail scenic drive, feast on steamed mussels and lobster rolls in colorful seafood shacks, visit galleries known for hooked rugs, pottery, and wood carvings, and meet some of Canada’s friendliest locals.

Check out the website of Cape Breton Island Tourism for more trip-planning advice and details.
