I grew up in Nova Scotia. That being said, every time we had visitors' we did the tourist things. As I kid I wasn't impressed. It wasn't until I moved away and come home to visit that I truly appreciate all the beauty Nova Scotia has to offer. The Cabot Trail is beautiful anytime, but the fall is my favorite. The leaves are changing and vibrant with color, the smell of the salt water in the air and whales off the coast.

You can't come to Nova Scotia and not do the trail.

Long scenic stretches of the local area. Passes through forest and coast. If you're in the area it's a great little drive with many interesting local shops and eateries

For more than 4 decades I am a "summer settler" of Cape Breton Island and cannot count how many times I have shared this magnificent itinerary with friends from around the world. There are so many "lookout points", short side trips to see water falls, that no matter what the season, nature is endlessly variable and no two trips are alike.
Its unspoiled natural beauty is timeless.

We stayed in Baddeck and did the whole drive in one day, including quite a few stops and 2 walks - skyline Walk and Middle Head Walk. Very enjoyable and didn't feel rushed.

Amazing ride with beautiful sights. We went in July but were told the best time to go is in the fall because of the beautiful colours.
