Museum
“Alexander Graham Bell Museum is a good place to spend a few hours in Baddeck. If you have a National Parks Pass , you can use it for admission to any national park or national museum. If you plan on visiting several museums and going around the trail , I found an annual parks Canada pass is more economical for a family.”

Pizza Place

“ While I do not usually like pizza, I did try the pizza here twice, and it is very good! This place is the last to close in the village of Baddeck, and it closes at 11 pm. The pizzas are all made fresh in front of customers. There are a wide range of sizes and toppings, as well, and thick or thin crust. The atmosphere inside is very fun and lively and great for groups and families. Parking is usually available on the street in the evenings or in a parking lot next door. Both outdoor and indoor seating are available.”
