Cape Breton Island is northeast of Nova Scotia, across the Strait of Canso but joined by the Canso Causeway. Part of the economy is in transition from industrial to service-based, while other parts continue with fishing, forestry, agriculture, and tourism.

One of the world's most famous drives, the Cabot Trail offers beautiful vistas of mountains, plateaus, and coastal scenes overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Whales, eagles, and seabirds are often spotted along the drive. Wildlife is also often seen in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, with its 25 walking/hiking trails. And Two Rivers Wildlife Park in Marion Bridge displays over 50 species of animals and birds, beside 500 acres of hiking/cross country skiing trails. For offshore wildlife viewing, tours are available to the Atlantic Puffin's nesting grounds. Or take a scenic cruise followed by a swim in the Atlantic Ocean at Ingonish. Among the historic sites along the drive, the Fortress of Louisbourg stands out as the largest replica 18th Century French fortified town in North America.

The Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site of Canada in Baddeck displays his inventive work, and his summer home is nearby. Glace Bay's Miners' Museum tells the story of Cape Breton's historic leading industry. The Louisbourg Playhouse, based on London's 1599 Globe Theatre, offers live entertainment during summer. The Highland Village Museum overlooking the Bras d'Or Lakes brings Cape Breton's Scottish Gaelic culture alive. Experience Mi'kmaq culture and cuisine at Wagmatcook Culture and Heritage Centre. Or enjoy a fresh lobster supper elsewhere. The Glenora Inn & Distillery at Glenville offers tours of North America's only single malt whisky distillery.
