Discover Louisbourg, Cape Breton in a Rental RV

Posted on 21 October 2010

Nova Scotia's Cape Breton is an island of abundant natural beauty just crying out for a motorhome rental roadtrip. In fact, the province has actually divided the island up into five helpful routes for RV drivers to choose from. At the point where the Fleur-de-lis and Marconi Trails meet you will find the quaint, seaside city of Louisbourg, a favourite destination for many RV renters who enjoy the town for its charm, beaches and culture.

One such couple of avid RVers are Hal Thiessen and Coralie Bornais of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, who have returned to Louisbourg every year since discovering it on a trip to Cape Breton ten years ago. According to The Cape Breton Post "each year they arrive in September and stay at the Louisbourg Motorhome RV Park, attending 25 playhouse shows in one season plus a few running in conjunction with the Celtic Colours International Festival." While the music of the place and the cultural draw of the 17th century Louisbourg Playhouse (modelled on Shakespeare's Globe Theatre) brings the couple back again and again they are not the only benefits to parking your motorhome rental in Louisbourg. Just think of the beaches you can visit, hikes you can take, delicious food waiting to be eaten and historical sites, like the Louisbourg National Historical Site, that you can discover.

"By and large our musical desires are satisfied right here because for one month we have nothing but different entertainment and good entertainment,” Thiessen tells the newspaper. While Bornais chimes in with high praise of his own: "We have so much love for this island. You have no idea how fortunate you are to have such a wealth of talent.” For those looking for a great cultural experience in Canada look no further than Louisbourg, Cape Breton where natural beauty and quaint charm is married to a thriving artistic scene making the town a great stop on a Nova Scotia roadtrip or a perfect destination all on its own.
