North Bay in the Tourism Region: "Northeastern Ontario"

North Bay is a nicely developed city with a population of over 54 000. We liked to go there whenever we stayed in Callander at our friends cottage resort.
Even when we had nice weather there whenever we arrived in North Bay it was raining. Nevertheless we liked to visit the town for shopping and to talk to the friendly people in the tourist information. The also sell nice gifts there.
When you live in a cottage you do not want to go out for dining every day. We purchased all kind of groceries in one of the large super markets.
Because of the pouring rain, we did not take any pictures during our visits. We were always hoping to catch at least one time a sunny day - but we did not.
Naturally the sun came immediately out when we arrived home in our cozy cottage. As soon as we had parked the car our little friends, the chipmunks showed up and were expecting being fed with peanuts. Elizabeth, my wife and a great animal lover did not disappoint them. Then we went swimming in Lake Nipissing.
North Bay offers much more than super markets. You can find all kinds of accommodations and restaurants if you prefer this to a cottage or when all cottages are booked out in high season.
Also sand beaches are a great attraction. Other visitors may be interested to learn more about the "Dionne Quintuplets" which were born in 1934. Use the installed link to the "Dionne Museum".
I am interested to visit the "Heritage Railway Company" to take a ride along the shores of Lake Nipissing. For me it is better to ride in a little cart that to walk 2.5 km with my Rollator!

This train system was built by volunteers

Two trains are in service - one with a real steam engine driven locomotive and an other one with a diesel engine.
Another attraction which is of interest to me is a cruise on Lake Nipissing with the "New Chief".

The settlement of this area began with railroad connections. These were a prerequisite for the wood industry and also the mining industry.
Later, during the Cold War, a base of the Royal Canadian Air Force was formed in North Bay with a huge nuclear bomb-proof, underground bunker.
Austerity measures dramatically reduced the base. However, it is still used for national defense in cooperation with the USA and the long runways for emergencies are still serviceable.
Now tourism plays an important role, not only relying on beautiful nature. All kinds of artists provide for an additional enrichment. North Bay has been used in the past for the production of numerous films and TV series.
An university, a college and a growing administration help also to keep people here in North Bay.

There is even a "whale" in Lake Nipissing - Magnus Manske at Wikimedia Commons

I'm sure your stay in North Bay or the surrounding area will never be boring. I hope that our web pages with the included videos will give you some suggestions.
But go also on discovery trips in the blue. Rent a boat and find the only whale in the lake and climb the "whale".
We did not no about it when we stayed in our cottage.
Ask about offered activities in winter. Even without high mountains you can do a lot here!
Take a guided tour with a snowmobile. Make sure this does not turn out in a race if you are a beginner.
We made our first comfortable tour in Newfoundland.
