10 Things We Love About Muskoka in 2009


1.  Perusing one-of-a-kind wares crafted by Canadian artists at the annual Dockside Festival. 

2.  Traveling back to the 19th century at Muskoka Heritage Place, as costumed narrators demonstrate blacksmithing, candlemaking, traditional school lessons and more. 

3.  Enjoying more than 50 acres of scenic walking trails at the Muskoka Wildlife Centre. Keep an eye out for Woodrow the beaver and Thorondor the bald eagle.

4.  A leisurely cruise aboard the Lady Muskoka—soak in some sun while lounging on the open-air third deck. 

5.  Resting your legs along the boardwalk of Muskoka Wharf, Gravenhurst’s historic waterfront, and admiring the classic steamships (705-687-3412, ext. 267).

6.  Discovering the legacy of Dr. Henry Norman Bethune, a Canadian physician and medical innovator, on a guided tour of his picturesque Memorial House. 

7.  Satisfying your sweet tooth with syrupy treats like maple sugar and fudge from Maple Orchard Farms.

8.  Outfitting yourself for the perfect summer with everything from water skis to wet suits at The Muskoka Store.

9.  Learning why Muskoka is Ontario’s hottest golf destination at one of 10 challenging courses in the region.

10.  Savouring the pristine beauty of Muskoka’s lakes while watching the sun set.
