Encompassing a fifth of Nova Scotia's land area, Cape Breton Island supports a thriving tourism sector with its blend of cultural, historical, and natural attractions. In addition to several small towns with a strong sense of community, popular places to visit on Cape Breton Island include the largest national park in the Maritime provinces. Sheltering many iconic Canadian animals, the park contains the scenic Cabot Trail, drawing nearly half a million annual cyclists, walkers, and drivers. Epic natural scenery keeps most visitors outdoors during their Cape Breton Island vacation, but this destination also boasts several major indoor attractions, like a world-famous whiskey distillery and a reconstructed 18th-century fortress.
