Rating: 0 vote(s).

Fred Dahms presents ten prosperous, attractive communities with a strong sense of heritage, all located east of Toronto. They offer a welcome respite for city dwellers looking for a pleasant outing -- or a new home.
Some, such as Bobcaygeon and Port Perry, are popular with visitors; while Fenelon Falls, Deseronto, and Millbrook are pleasant surprises for the curious traveler. Each of these towns make a comfortable and enjoyable day's outing for residents of Toronto and the GTA, Peterborough, Kingston, and the other urban areas of south central Ontario.
Fred Dahms, who studies what makes small towns healthy and successful, shares his knowledge of each place's history, its amenities and the reasons for its success. Lavishly illustrated with full-colour photographs, Picturesque Ontario Towns also includes maps for each community.
