Where to travel in 2022? CNN says Cape Breton!
CNN published a list of locations to visit in 2022 and our island made the list.
Here's what they had to say:
Connected to the Canadian mainland by a mile-long causeway, Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Island is famed for its scenic vistas and historic sites.
Spread over 10,311 square kilometers, it's no tiny dot in the ocean, either.
Island highlights include Cabot Trail, a scenic two-lane byway that snakes through Cape Breton Highlands National Park, where lush green hills and rusty red cliffs tower over rugged beaches; the impressive 18th-century Fortress of Louisbourg, once the capital of a French colony and today a living history museum; and culinary offerings, from modern fine dining to traditional community lobster suppers.
Why go now? In recent years, Canada has taken important steps to develop and promote indigenous tourism and Cape Breton is no exception. Visitors can immerse themselves in traditions of Cape Breton's Mi'kmaq -- a First Nations people who have lived in Canada's eastern Maritime region for over 10,000 years -- through a variety of offerings from the island's five First Nations communities. -- Karla Cripps
