If you are driving on Highway 11 from Toronto to visit the Algonquin Park, Huntsville is the last major city on you way.
It has a population of about 20 000. It offers excellent shopping if you still need something before your wilderness adventure begins.
In 2010, the G8 summit meeting took place here in a resort, which cost the Canadian taxpayers dearly and of course caused criticism. But security costs money and of course we should also strive to present our country well.
In any case, a mess as in Hamburg could be avoided.
Visit the "Deerhurst Resort" in Huntsville where the meeting took place. The Google Map shows it as the "Canada Summit Center".
The town itself and its surroundings are also an excellent destination for people who want to enjoy great nature and sightseeing in a more relaxed way.

Clean water, sun shine and nature
Summer and autumn are our preferred travel times. You should enjoy the nature and all that it offers. These shots were taken in early September. The water is still warm and it is quieter. A good time to relax.
You can not imagine the harsh winter
However, I know that some people are waiting for the cold season to ride their snow mobiles or go ice fishing.
Huntsville is a very clean small town
Despite its size Huntsville was selected to host the G8 World Summit in June of 2010. According to critics it was one of the most expensive ones.
I was feeling like home when I had a delicious Schnitzel for lunch. Unfortunately, the place is closed now.
Huntsville offers many things to make your stay a pleasant one. Just check for an accommodation which suits you.
Find out about events. Huntsville is home of the Algonquin Theatre. Good restaurants make dining enjoyable.
Visit the Muskoka Heritage Place - Steam Train & Pioneer Village.
Find out if tours with the "Portage Flyer" of a narrow-gauge railway with a steam powered locomotive are currently being offered. Watch the video!
Maybe you choose Huntsville as your starting point for exploring the area. Time is too precious to waste it with searching evert day for a new accommodation.

This area is also referred to as "cottage country".
Naturally, Huntsville itself also offers everything you would expect for a relaxing vacations.
From the cottage by the water to the hotel. I think you should try everything once.
Near Huntsville there is a reconstructed pioneer village (Pioneer Village) to visit. You should not miss this. Especially children should like it. Every now and then they need a bit of variety.
Unfortunately, it is only open from July to September every day.

Unfortunately, Elizabeth and I have never visited the " Algonquin Park" . Visitors from us were there. They were young people who had spent several days there.
They had tents with them and rented canoes. They always had to carry them from one body of water to the other. They still rave about this adventure today.
They wanted to live off all self-caught fish. Unfortunately they did not have the necessary luck and became very hungry.
