Beautiful Ontario Towns captures the unique heritage preserved in southwestern Ontario's small towns and villages.
Fred Dahms has selected ten prosperous, picturesque communities that offer a welcome respite for city dwellers looking for a pleasant outing -- or a new place to live. Some, like St. Jacobs, Elora and St. Marys, are already well known. Others, like Neustadt or Thornbury, are an unexpected surprise. Each of these settlements would make a comfortable and enjoyable day's outing for residents of Toronto, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo or the other large cities of southwestern Ontario.
Fred Dahms, who has made a special study of small towns in the province, shares his knowledge of each place's history, its amenities and the reasons for its success. Lavishly illustrated with full-colour photographs, Beautiful Ontario Towns also includes maps and key statistical information for each place.
