​Roadside attractions in Ontario, Canada

Release Date:

Quirky and fun roadside attractions not only offer a bit of a breather during long trips but they also are a great representation of the cultural background of the area you are visiting.

Below you will find a list of 6 Ontario roadside attractions that you are going to want to stop for.

1.) Wawa Goose Monument
The Wawa Goose Monument is Algoma’s most famous roadside attraction. Located on Highway 17, Wawa has been welcoming visitors since the 1960’s.

2.) Algomy Red Chair
This 18 ft, fire truck red wooden Muskoka chair is just west of Thessalon. The chair was built by high-schoolers and is the largest Muskoka chair in Northern Ontario.

3.) Winnie-the-Pooh Statue
White River is the home of the real black bear which inspired A.A. Milne to create her most beloved character, Winne-the-Pooh. There is now a statue of Winnie to commemorate the writer and her bear.

4.) Arctic Watershed Marker
The rather unique marker on Highway 129 in the Mississagi Valley is simply a cool and fun roadside attraction where selfies are a must!

5.) The Loon Dollar Monument
The big “Loonie” located in Echo Bay is dedicated to the artist, Robert R. Carmichael who is responsible for the Loon Dollar design.

6.) Canadian Bushplane
It would be rather difficult to miss the Canadian Bushplane Museum, with its huge bushplane displayed just outside the museum’s doors. In the museum you will not only be able to take pictures of real bushplanes but you will also be able to explore inside of them.
