Ontario is full of hidden treasures. Down village streets, in city lanes and along quiet country roads lie the province's most unusual sites -- a river that disappears, log cabins in the centre of a major city, even a high-rise privy. All await the curious explorer. In his relentless quest to discover the unusual, Ron Brown has traveled nearly every road in Ontario. This book features 115 of his very best trips.

Thoroughly researched and written in an inviting style, each description offers a fascinating story with background, location and accompanying color photograph. Most places are easy to reach from Ontario's major population centers, but there are a few for more adventurous explorers. Among the all-new locations featured in this edition are:

  • Peterborough's canoe museum
  • Ontario's longest small-town train station
  • A ghost town worth visiting
  • Camp 30 and the Battle of Bowmanville
  • The Mimico Asylum, with its new lease on life
  • The Little Current railway swing bridge

In Top 115 Unusual Things to See in Ontario, existing entries have been updated and all places are now grouped by location (Eastern Ontario, Southwestern Ontario, Central Ontario and Toronto Area, Cottage Country and Northern Ontario). As well, detailed maps pinpoint every location in this engaging, informative book.
