Sydney, Nova Scotia
Sydney on Cape Breton Island was originally founded in 1785 by fleeing British Loyalists. They established a coal- and steel-producing community in Sydney that attracted a myriad of ethnic backgrounds. Today Sydney still exports coal and is a perfect jumping point for the scenic attractions of Cape Breton Island.
St. Patrick's Church
The historic buildings of Sydney are located in the waterfront's north end, one in particular is an early 19th century Gothic style church that now houses a local history museum.
A National Historic Site and Canada's largest historical reconstruction, this living museum within the fortress was once France's administrative, military and commercial heart in North America. Now completely restored, locals dress in period costume and run 18th century businesses.
This quaint town, located on the Bras d' Or Lake, is filled with quaint shops and inviting cafes. It is also where Alexander Graham Bell had a summer home, which now houses a fascinating museum.
