Baddeck Travel Guide
Welcome to Baddeck!
The capital city of Nova Scotia's scenic Cabot Trail, Baddeck is firmly planted in the centre of Cape Breton Island along the shores of the mighty Bras d'Or Lakes. The town's most famous resident was the illustrious Alexander Graham Bell, who moved to the area in 1885, shortly after inventing the telephone. Bell's plane, the Silver Dart, flew over Baddeck Bay in 1909 to complete the first recorded flight in the British Empire. Nowadays Baddeck is a resort town, drawing tourists from all over the world who want to learn about Bell and his remarkable life at the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site. Nearby, Cabot's Landing Historic Site commemorates famed explorer John Cabot's monumental landing in Canada in 1497. Many visitors also enjoy visiting the nearby Cape Breton Highlands National Park or testing their mettle on one of Cape Breton's challenging golf courses.
Situated on 10 ha overlooking the Bras d'Or lake, this remarkable site commemorates the significant scientific and humanitarian contributions of the illustrious Alexander Graham Bell.
