Cheticamp is a simple Acadian fishing village at the gateway to the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The restaurants aren't fancy and aren't geared toward fine dining, but several offer good local cuisine at fair prices if you order what the locals order -- or you can opt for pizza. If you're looking for fine dining or 4-star+ accommodations, you're in the wrong town. In Cheticamp you can find authentic Acadian cuisine at fair prices on a beautiful, rugged seacoast. The Park is well worth the $7.80 per adult admission fee. The coast is beautiful, and there are many pull-offs where you can stop to absorb the view and several where you can read about what you're viewing -- in at least French and English. The descriptions are very well-done and often give the history and/or geology of the area. Other descriptions of the Park can be found on sites for other cities (like Ingonish). If you're visiting from Cheticamp, there's a neat little boulangerie/bakery -- La Boulangerie Aucoin -- a few kms from the Park entrance that's worth a stop if you like fresh croissants or other pastries, and they're not expensive. Look for their signs along the route, either going or returning.
