Orillia Overview

Orillia is a small historic town nestled between lakes Simcoe and Couchiching. Orillia is near cottage country and the city of Barrie so one may choose to easily visit the "city" to do some shopping or head over to Muskoka to experience the wilder side of things.

The downtown core and waterfront are picturesque in the summer time when multiple festivals run nearly every weekend. The docks are available during the summer for boaters who wish to stay or sail through the many adjoining rivers and lakes. A newer built-up area has arrived in Orillia as well: West Ridge. This area currently has no hotels in it but the Hiwayman Inn is close by. WEst Ridge is home to most of the chain restaurants and larger stores like Wal-mart and Future Shop.

-Moose Beach/Tudhope Park (Smaller Beach, recreational/walking areas/folk festival site)
