Want to find the closest kitchen party or directions to a waterfall? No problem. Maybe you need a map to find the locations for the Roots & Boots Festival, or directions to the Savoy Theatre for the Summertime Review. Check and check. Then again, perhaps you just want to know where to find the island’s best oatcakes or a lobster dinner? That, too, is a no-brainer. And you just might end up getting a family recipe for making oatcakes.

Parks Canada has information/interpretive sites located at the entrances to the Cape Breton Highlands National Park at Ingonish and Chéticamp.
