North Bay is called the Gateway of the North. The natural landscapes with beaches, lakes, and nature parks simply took my heart away. You can ski, hike, or just chill out. There are so many things to do that you are never going to run out of options. I recommend you can do when you are in North Bay.
- Hike at trails of Duchesnay Falls
Enjoy some outdoor fun by hiking on the trails of Duchesnay Falls. I loved the sceneries that this trail has to offer. The river and the waterfall have been mesmerizing. I hiked mainly to check out the falls. This is also the reason this trail is frequented by tourist. Visit during autumn to enjoy the most picturesque view.
- Cruise along Lake Nipissing
The 3rd largest lake of Ontario is to be found in North Bay. Lake Nipissing is a grant and historical lake. There is a cruise ship called Chief Commanda II that has been developed for navigating across this lake. It took me to four places, the Manitou Islands, the French River, North Shore, and the Callander Bay. The cruise sails from May to September.
- Visit a museum
If you are a historic buff like me, you can visit the North Bay Museum. Here, I found all socialistic and historical places. The exhibits on display belong to the era between 1800s-1960s. The good thing about this museum is that they also offer summer camps, event rentals, and themed parties. Since I wanted to learn more about the exhibits, it availed a guided tour.
- Drop in at the woods
If you want to breathe in the air of nature, you can visit Laurier Woods Conservation. You take a walk or hike on the trails available here. You will find a lot of features while a walk along the woods.
