Whether you want to drive along the trail or go golfing, kayaking, hiking, cycling or whale watching, you're sure to be met with unmatched beauty.
Views from the trail are especially gorgeous during the fall season, when the foliage is blooming and the island is covered in red, orange and yellow.
Because of its unparalleled coastal views and highland scenery, the Cabot Trail has been dubbed one of the most scenic routes by many.
It was featured in USA Today's 10 Best Readers' Choice for Best a Motorcycle Trip back in 2014.
And the trail doesn't just offer natural beauty.
Artisans come from near and far to draw inspiration from the landscape and sell their handmade goods.
You can stop at any of the local shops along the way to purchase a one-of-a-kind souvenir, or you can even plan an entire road trip around the Cabot Trail artisans.
There also happens to be a long list of unbeatable seafood restaurants located along the trail, because nothing goes with the raw natural beauty of the water and the trees quite like a fresh lobster roll.
The rich culture of Cape Breton Island is part of what sets it apart as a must-see destination, and if you happen to veer off the Cabot Trail you might just find yourself listening to live Celtic music, taking part in kilt-making, square dancing or learning about Acadian history.
There's no other road quite like the Cabot Trail. It combines unbelievable natural beauty with outdoor activities, food, culture and more.
But if you still don't believe me, you'll just have to see for yourself.
