Bobby Orr Hall Of Fame

If you have a hockey fan in your midst, then you must make the trip to Parry Sound (Bobby Orr’s hometown) to visit the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame. There’s an amazing collection of memorabilia that was largely donated by the community, a trophy room and some super-cool interactive exhibits. Plus, it’s located inside the Stockey Centre which is right on the shore of Georgian Bay. Hockey + amazing views = awesome!



Huronia Museum

The Huronia Museum in Midland is a really cool place. It features a replica of a “pre-contact” Huron/Ouendat village, including a lookout tower, wigwam and a full-size longhouse. They also have  an exhibit gallery with thousands of historic artifacts ranging from photographs, native archaeology and art by members of the Group of Seven. You could fill several rainy days here!
