Things to do

Enjoy the great outdoors in Inverness

Golfers will jump at the chance to tee off at Cabot Links. The 18-hole links course is set on a former coal mine and offers sweeping views of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. Boasting some of North America's most-dramatic coastal scenery, Cape Breton Highlands National Park is a Nova Scotia icon. The legendary Cabot Trail runs through the park and will take you past soaring sea cliffs, lush woodland forests and windswept moors. For a glimpse of the town's mining history, don't miss the Inverness Miners' Museum. It's housed in the former Canadian National Railway Station and is filled with fossils, vintage photography and other mining memorabilia.


Embrace Cape Breton Island's Celtic roots in Inverness

From windswept strolls to sun-drenched sandcastle-building competitions, Inverness Beach is the town's signature stretch of sand. With shallow water and a summer lifeguard, it's a favorite with local families. Thanks to its Irish roots, Cape Breton Island has always been a melting pot for Celtic music. In fact, locals boast that the island is home to more fiddlers per capita than any other town or city on the planet. While local pubs throw a mean ceilidh, Inverness vacation rentals make it easy to host your own Celtic-inspired "kitchen parties."


Long days and sunshine in Inverness

Summers in Nova Scotia are short-lived, but utterly worth it. Inverness enjoys long days, warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine. While conditions in spring and fall can be difficult to predict, the chances are you'll enjoy clear skies and crisp temperatures. It won't be warm enough to swim, but you can still hike in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, kayak around the Northern Cape or get stuck into a good book while enjoying the views from the deck of your oceanfront Inverness vacation rentals cottage.
