Sightseeing
North Bay has much to offer for the outdoor enthusiasts. We are fortunate to have 2 beautiful lakes within the city. With great hiking, walking and bicycle paths, there is definitely something for everyone.
This hike is uphill along beautiful waterfalls. Pack a picnic and hike up to the lookout. You will not be disappointed. 5 min drive from our home, west on hwy 17. Parking lot at the bottom.

Great hike! Not strenuous, mostly flat ground with a few well worn path inclines. This is approx 35mins east of North Bay. Well worth the trip. So picturesque, with history plackards along the way.

A short drive south of the city to Callander, takes to Cranberry Trail. Beautiful and scenic, an easy walk on a well-travelled trail. Walk to the end to a beautiful view of Trout Lake.

Food scene
The neighbourhood we live in is the 'main hub' of North Bay. More restaurants and stores than I can list. From fast food, to roadhouse, to finer dining. 2 great grocery stores are within walking distance - one, No Frills, is a box store. Sobeys is the other one, offering full service with wine and beer. The LCBO is in the Sobeys parking lot.
