Port Hawkesbury Vacations
From Port Hawkesbury, the major city of Cape Breton Island is approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the northeast.
Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, no matter how popular, will only ever provide you with a narrow glimpse into the broader textures and qualities of a region. So try to set aside some time to tour Nova Scotia's other natural and man-made attractions. Heatherton and Orangedale are just two of the many other places worth seeing while you're in Nova Scotia.
Approximately 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the northeast of Port Hawkesbury is Baddeck, an important regional city where you'll find Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site, Bell Bay Golf Club and Gilbert H. Grosvenor Hall. Be sure not to head back to Port Hawkesbury until you've investigated Baddeck's Uisage Ban Falls Provincial Park, Gaelic College of Celtic Arts and Crafts and Kidston Island Lighthouse.
Enjoy a little local culture amid the great outdoors at the region's ever-popular open-air exhibits, farms and gardens. Stimulate your mind at Nova Scotia's great art museums, nature museums and theaters.
The Port Hawkesbury area is a good destination to get outside and make the most of winter. When the temperature falls, follow the locals and try skiing or snowboarding. The Nova Scotia area offers a number of gentle activities. Set aside some time for shore fishing or picnicking and feel your stresses melt away.
Grab your camera, pack your bags and head off to this breathtakingly beautiful spot.
