Product description

Review

Thoroughly researched and written in an inviting style, Ron Brown's descriptions offer fascinating stories with background, location and accompanying color photographs. (R. Legault Fifty-Five Plus Magazine 2017-10-01)

[Review of a previous edition:] [For] travellers who want to stay close to home but still enjoy an adventure. (The Ottawa Citizen 2007-12-15)

[Review of a previous edition:] [Brown] collects the very best trips from the most unexpected and surprising sights in the province. (Andrew Armitage The Sun Times (Owen Sound, ON) 2007-11-02)

[Review of a previous edition:] Few people know more about Ontario's oddities than Toronto-based author Ron Brown...[and] they're almost all here in this new revised edition. (Diane Slawych The Toronto Sun 2007-12-19)

[Review of a previous edition:] We can hope that [Brown's] efforts to celebrate Ontario's past and present wonders will attract a new generation of readers and travellers. (Linda Turk Thunder Bay Chronicle Journal 2007-10-07)

[Review of a previous edition:] The sights stand out for their splendor or quirkiness. Some are natural wonders, others are man-made. They might be tricky to find, or perched so close that you'll wonder how you missed them.... If your holidays are over and the budget is maxed out, the dog days of summer may be a perfect time to go exploring unusual spots close by. (Andrea Gordon Toronto Star 2012-08-10)

[Review of a previous edition:] [Brown] has the gift of finding lots of things interesting and of them being able to write beautifully about those things. (Linda Turk Chronicle-Journal (Thunder Bay) 2007-10-07)

[Review of a previous edition:] The table of contents alone will make you curious to see such places as Ontario's Taj Mahal. (Jon Fear Guelph Mercury 2012-12-15)

[Review of a previous edition:] Thoroughly researched and written in an inviting style. (Midland Mirror 2012-12-13)

[Review of a previous edition:] Brown's books are always interesting and bring to mind adventures. (Lois Cooper Muskoka Today 2007-12-13)
