Visit and explore Bracebridge and surroundings

Bracebridge and surroundings - many thanks to MapArt

Muskoka is an essential part of this tourism region

Bracebridge is also a great base for exploring the "Muskoka Area" all year round.
The community has about 16,000 inhabitants and strives to make the visitor's stay as attractive as possible and to point out all the sights.
I believe that has succeeded. It has the character of a small town very well preserved and it is fun to stroll through the city center. You will not find the well-known chain stores, but privately run shops that offer things that you rarely see otherwise.
It is also proud of the location - almost exactly in the middle between the equator and the North Pole although the founders of the city certainly did not know it then.
I've included some videos below that should convince you not to overlook Bracebridge when you're here.

Visit a tourist office and collect the most actual information about events and offered tours. All this depends from the season.
They even created their own "Bracebridge Past Times Heritage Tour Guide", which you can hopefully still buy from the local Chamber of Commerce.
In the warmer season cruises on Lake Muskoka, hiking and biking are favorites. In winter snowmobiling, cross country skiing, ice fishing etc. are offered.
If you never did snowmobiling and do not own one, check for guided tours. We did this during our visit to Newfoundland. Please check our web site about this adventure.

The Muskoka River with the falls

However, there are things in North America were I got some kind of a shock after I had arrived from Germany. It does not seem to bother anyone here to market Christian events shamelessly. Christmas in midsummer or "Santa's Village", where the poor guy has to work all year round are just two examples.
Children take no offense and of course I understand the parents who want to offer their offspring something.
We were never there; because we have no small children who can persuade us. Take a look at the two videos below and decide.
For Bracebridge, this amusement park is certainly a perpetual Christmas gift that brings money and jobs.
For me the Muskoka river with its 22 water falls is a real attraction.
At the time of our visit my walking was still better than now an it is much easier to discover all the little hidden treasure by foot than by car.
We cannot list all the actual events - so please ask when you are there.
After seeing so many historical structures being destroyed in our area we were pleased to find here many well kept heritage buildings.
Explore the surroundings of Bracebridge. You can even do some winter sport here.

The falls zoomed in

In addition to waterfalls, the summer residence of "Santa Claus", a gallery and of course historical buildings can be visited.

Der "Bracebridge Towne Express" - Photo by User:DavidArthur at Wikimedia Commons

Unfortunately, we never saw the "Bracebridge Towne Express" during our visits. It is part of the public transport system and is sponsored by Santa's Village. However, he only transports guests on Sundays and in the afternoon. Where? - to "Santa's Village". I will gladly visit Bracebridge again. However we will prefer a river trip with the "Lady Muskoka" on the "Muskoka River".
Watch the video below. But a video can never replace the original experience!
Just a reminder, if you do your route planning. On rural roads, the journey takes longer - but you will certainly get to know the country better.
