Cape Breton Island- Rated @ top # 1 of 10 Most Romantic places in Canada

Story by Vacay.ca Staff .... <#1 of 10-most-romantic-places-in-canada>

1. Cape Breton, Nova Scotia — Possibly the most romantic aspect of vacationing on Cape Breton Island is the fact that things move slowly there. You can live in your hotel room for days without missing your laptop. You can take a snowshoeing trip to areas with no cell-phone service and never miss that annoying buzz that comes every five minutes. In Cape Breton it’s all about you, your partner and breathtaking landscapes. Visiting Cape Breton takes relaxation to new levels, which means you have nothing but time to devote to the one you love the most.

If your ideal romantic getaway includes cozy pub booths, fresh seafood and simple country charm, then this island in the Maritimes should be at the top of your list. Cape Breton offers peaceful and idyllic surroundings as well as luxurious resorts and warm B & Bs — perfect for a Valentine’s Day weekend escape, an anniversary trip or even a romantic honeymoon.


When you cross over to “the Island” from mainland Nova Scotia, you can almost hear the music in the air — fiddle music, more specifically. Cape Breton has the most fiddle players per capita in the world and it isn’t difficult to find a quiet pub or country dance to try your hand at Cape Breton step or square dancing with your honey.
