Louisbourg Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 121 photos


Louisbourg is a beautiful little fishing town on the coast of Cape Breton Island. Louisbourg is known for the Fortress of Lousibourg, a great historical park that is a lot of fun to vist. There is also a great festival held each year on the august long weekend. This is called Crab Fest. It is a fun weekend full of East coast music, town spirit, and for the seafood lover, a lunch of crab meat and sides. I would sugest visiting Louisbourg if you wish to see beautiful scenery and experience an old world feel while on vacation.
