Visiting Northern Ontario
You’ll easily discover a wide range of excellent things to do and see during your next visit to northern Ontario. From Huntsville out to Dryden, northern Ontario’s landscape is expansive and diverse – don’t miss any of the excellent attractions, festivals, events, concerts, and more during your late 2016 or early 2017 visit.
Make sure you plan an extended stay in Thunder Bay. Just minutes from the Minnesota border, Thunder Bay will yield full days of exploration and adventure – check out the Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, fly in and land at Thunder Bay International Airport, and don’t miss the Thunder Oak Cheese Farm. Winter is an excellent time to break out your skates – hit the ice at the Port Arthur Arena Ice Skating Rink, one of Thunder Bay’s premier attractions.
In Sioux Lookout, just outside of Dryden, you can experience even more ice skating fun during a winter visit to northern Ontario. Make your way to the Memorial Arena Ice Skating Rink – public skating is available on Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Sundays from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
One of Thunder Bay’s most sterling winter events will take place in early 2017, so plan your stay accordingly. SnowDay at Marina Park will be held on February 20th and will feature loads of snow-based games and adventures for the kids, a chili cook-off, and Snowga – think Jenga. Help Thunder Bay locals celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.
A visit to North Bay should be on any travel agenda when touring northern Ontario. Charming and full of pleasant locals, North Bay is only minutes east of Sudbury. One of the best ways to celebrate autumn in the North Bay area is at the annual St. Charles Scarecrow Fest. Visit downtown St. Charles, found just west of North Bay, from October 7th to 9th and check out more than 100 unique and handcrafted scarecrows.
The Capitol Centre in North Bay will be the place to be on January 11th. Visit this must-see event venue for your chances to see Lee Ann Womack live on stage. This popular and eclectic country music star will be performing her biggest hits, and even some new jams off her latest album “The Way I’m Livin’.”
