Muskoka! We're Number One. The National Geographic Says So.
National Geographpic Travel editors hand-picked ten top trips, for out-of-the-ordinary destinations for your summer vacations
Well, what do you know? Number one on the list? Muskoka!
Close to Toronto (which is good, given the price of fuel -- we're still affordable to reach!) and yet a world away from the city, offering an unplugged pace and what they describe as simple summer pleasures. They also mention the Algonquin Park Wolf Howls, a world famous attraction that takes place (wolves and weather permitting) on Thursdays in August.
One of our North Muskoka neighbours, Pow Point Point Lodge, got a National Geographic shout out!
Or on our lawn, right here at Bondi Village, if our resident wolf pack is in the area.
Cranberries at Bala, the UNESCO Dark Skies reserve at the Torrance Barrens, Algonquin Park, Arrowhead Park, the Haliburton Forest Reserve Sky Walk and Wolf Centre, HMS Segwun (repeatedly rated as one of Canada's top attractions) and so much more are all within an hour's drive.
