Info about Cape Breton

Overview

Cape Breton can be described as one of the counties located in Nova Scotia, a Canadian province; upon Cape Breton Island.
 
Having derived its name from ‘Cape Breton’, the name of island’s point that is towards the extreme east has been derived from ‘Bretons of Brittany’. This municipality has been possibly the oldest European name (surviving) which is being used for designating a portion of ‘North America’.
By proclamation which took place on 17th of October, 1763, i.e. after the termination of Seven Years’ War, ‘annexure of Cape Breton Island to ‘Nova Scotia’ took place. This led to Cape Breton Island to be a portion of ‘Halifax County’. On 10th of December, 1765, this place attained the status of being an exclusive county.
Amongst all trials and tribulations, Cape Breton County exists in the form of a county within the limits of Nova Scotia. However, service delivery and municipal government is being provided by First Nation reserves or Regional Municipality; that too, with no ‘additional’ county-level administration or government.

Overall Guide : Black Brook beach along the cabot trail is gorgeous! It has a lot of waves, but not too big. The cabot trail in general is a must see, especially if you bring a camera! It's impossible to take a bad... more shot when the scenery is so perfect! Also, you gotta try the lobster. Nobody makes lobster like someone from back home :)
Not to be missed Cabot Trail , fortress of lunenburg , Bras D’Or Lake
