Best Small Towns in Ontario You Need to Visit

Vineyards in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario

Ontario is brimming with scenic towns that offer something wonderful, from beautiful landscapes to historic architecture. With a population of 14.7 million living in 88 towns, Ontario is a province with an abundance of hidden gems just waiting to be discovered. 

We’ve shown you where to go ice skating in Ontario, and now, we’ll take you on a quick tour of the best small towns in Ontario if you’re looking for a quick escape not far from home. 

After bookmarking this post, make a list of your cannabis must-haves to pick up when you arrive — True North Cannabis Co. will be happy to provide you with all your essentials during your small town Ontario getaway!

1. Niagara on the Lake

Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of the best small towns in Ontario because of its scenic, leafy streets, quaint restaurants, and historical buildings. You’ll find a waterfront area that has a stunning view of Toronto’s iconic skyline, and with just a quick walk from downtown, you can take yourself back in time by visiting the Fort George National Historic Site. You can even explore the countryside and its many award-winning vineyards by foot, bicycles, or trails!

If you plan to stay in this small town after your Niagara Falls experience, swing by our TNCC Niagara Falls location so you can bring some of our top-shelf cannabis products for your trip!

2. Goderich

Not only is Goderich one of the best small towns in Ontario, but it’s also actually nicknamed “the prettiest town in Canada” by some. The streets in Goderich roll outward from downtown, in which the centre is landscaped magnificently throughout the summer months. Lake Huron is one of the largest and most stunning bodies of freshwater, so make sure you don’t miss seeing it! 

Another amazing thing about Goderich is our dispensary. Between basking on the beach, shopping, and café-hopping, grab some goodies that will make your trip to this town even more uplifting.

3. Huntsville

This list of the best small towns in Ontario wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Huntsville. It is best known for its abundance of fresh, beautiful bodies of water, and granite outcroppings.

This year-round holiday location for Ontarians across the province is a great jumping off point for good eats, hiking, visiting the Botanical Gardens, or lighting up a pre-roll and lounging around the cottage. 

Algonquin Provincial Park

Another experience you wouldn’t want to miss is trekking through Algonquin Provincial Park. If you’re camping in the area, make a quick stop over to our Huntsville location to make this nature trip one to remember. 

4. Stratford

If you’re a lover of all things Shakespeare, then you should definitely visit Stratford, home of the world-famous Shakespeare Festival. It has the perfect “small-town charm” with picturesque landscapes and freshwater areas, such as Lake Victoria. 

Stroll through the charmingly Instagrammable Shakespearean Gardens, and ponder the age-old question, to be “high” or not to be? If your answer is yes, swing by our Stratford dispensary to gather some of our top-notch cannabis products as you wander through this cute little town. 

5. Grand Bend

Located on the shores of Lake Huron in the southwest, Grand Bend is famous among beach lovers. Hoards of tourists cozy up along the shore for a sunny day outdoors; but expect to share your midday munchies with the resident seagulls. You can also visit local breweries, go parasailing, and camp in the Pinery Provincial Park for some quiet time with your loved ones. 

Grand Bend Beach at sunset

It’s an ideal town to visit, especially if you’re planning a trip with your friends. Rally up the buds to our Grand Bend dispensary before doing any of these activities. After all, what’s a beach trip without some pre-rolls or refreshing cannabis-infused beverages?

6. Paris

No, you won’t see the Eiffel Tower here, but this picturesque town can offer you an incredible sight of stone buildings and river views. Walk along the cobblestone streets with your friends to visit adorable cafes, specialty shops, and boutiques during the day, or pick one of its many trails to hike or go kayaking if you’re looking for a nature escape. 

Aside from being home to the Paris Museum & Historical Society, this town offers regular events at the Paris Fairgrounds, which is perfect for the culture vulture in you. 

Before you immerse yourself into all these culturally stimulating activities, don’t forget to check out our Brantford location just a short drive away.
