ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE
Besotted by Cape Breton, Alexander Graham Bell chose to spend his last 37 summers in Baddeck—arguably the Island’s prettiest resort town. Today it is home to an eponymous national historic site which spotlights the famed inventor’s achievements. On display you’ll see personal photos and artefacts along with intriguing models of the telephone and many other Bell creations, including an early airplane, a manned kite and a full-scale hydrofoil boat. Special activities, which run the gamut from kid-friendly experiments and kite-making sessions to detailed behind-the-scenes tours, draw visitors of all ages (www.parkscanada. gc.ca/alexandergrahambell).
