Located about three hours north of both Toronto and Ottawa, North Bay is widely known as eastern Canada’s ‘gateway to the north.’ It’s a friendly and inviting city that’s popular year-round, but really comes alive in the summer months. Here, you’ll find two large lakes, forests, waterfalls, and tons of other interesting natural ecosystems that make it enticing for all kinds of travelers. North Bay is a caring community of lively, energetic people, that put on tons of festivals and events across all of the year.
First up should be a visit to the Discover North Bay, a museum full of fun facts and interactive exhibits that showcase the area's history and heritage. After, head to the lake and have dinner onboard the original “Chief Commanda” boat and look out on the beautiful water. For all kinds of outdoor activities, consider renting bikes, kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddleboards, and golf carts.
In the winter, be sure to take in the excitement at the Laurentian Ski Hill with a 350-foot vertical in the heart of the city. Also consider renting a snowmobile or ATV to toy around in the fresh powder.
Depending on what you’re after, North Bay is worthy of a visit any time of the year. Just know that winter can get quite cold, so don't consider heading north during the months of January and February.
