A short 3 ½ hour drive from either Toronto or Ottawa, this friendly and inviting city is a popular year round destination. Offering plenty of activities, amenities and services to meet your needs, North Bay’s vibrancy is only exceeded by its hospitality! Whether planning an activity filled getaway or more of a “time out” from your hectic life – we’ve got what you’re looking for.
North Bay is conveniently nestled between two fresh water lakes which boast over 40 public beach access points. Lake Nipissing is a world-renowned fishing and sailing destination and presents breathtaking sunsets. Trout Lake is ideal for swimming, canoeing and waterskiing.
In the winter, take in the excitement offered at Laurentian Ski Hill with the 350 foot vertical in the heart of the city. Groomed snowshoeing and hiking trails along the escarpment are also available. For those adventure seekers, take a ride in style and see the land by snowmobile or ATV.
During the summer months, walk, run, bike or rollerblade the Kate Pace Way located alongside North Bay’s scenic Waterfront Park or families may prefer to visit the Heritage Railway and Carousels. Hundreds of kilometres of multi-use trails are also available for those who seek a more challenging terrain.
Arts and culture are well positioned with numerous art galleries, museums and a spectacular theatre arts centre, with live entertainment, symphony, theatre and dance, at the Capitol Centre.
