Retail: Downtown Sydney

About Downtown Sydney:

Cape Breton’s downtown core. Downtown Sydney is home to local live theatre performances, restaurants, pubs, cafes, unique local retail shops, salons, and various services. It is the heart of our live entertainment, theatre, craft, business, and retail communities. Take a stroll along Charlotte St and surrounding areas including our newly renovated boardwalk with a fabulous view of our waterfront. And don’t forget our famous Big Fiddle at the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion!
