DESTINATIONS GUIDEBOOK | 2015/16

Come discover the charm of small

town Eastern Ontario. Sprawling parks,

eclectic boutiques, and cozy restaurants

featuring local ingredients, make

visiting our downtowns a real treat. The

uncrowded streets, named after original

settlers whose descendants still dwell

here today, are alive with murals and art

installations. Here you’ll find treasured

shops operated by the same family for

generations. You’ll encounter local folk

strolling along, unhurried, nodding hello,

and offering a smile. Be sure to check out

the farmers markets in downtown Barry’s

Bay, Coe Hill, Maynooth and Bancroft, as

well as the multiple artisan markets run

throughout the year. You won’t want to

miss the retro-style street party, dance,

and classic car show at Bancroft’s

annual Wheels Water and Wings

weekend in July, or the Brighten

the Night after-dark Christmas

parade in Maynooth. It’s all here,

and it’s all authentic. Spend a

day exploring our downtowns

and you’ll find high quality

craftsmanship, artistic integrity,

and good old fashioned customer

service. Spend a week, and you might

just forget what box-stores and grid-lock

look like.
