Sightseeing
The beaches and parks in this area are really wonderful . Here are some of our favourite spots that we highly recommend visiting .
Pinery Provincial Park is the largest park in Southern Ontario . It's a glorious world class park .... and it's only a five or ten minute walk away ! If you like hiking , swimming , canoeing , kayaking , paddle boarding , snowshoeing or cross country skiing , you're in the right place ! You can rent bicycles , canoes , kayaks and paddle boards at Pinery , and you can walk and hike to the rental shop from the bunkie . It may take anywhere from 35 - 45 minutes or so to walk to the rental shop .
