Our fourth stop on our 2015 tour had us visiting Bruce Peninsula National Park in Central Ontario. The park is located just outside the small tourist community of Tobermory, Ontario along the Georgian Bay shoreline. It boasts some great and unique areas such as the famous ‘Grotto’, as well as the beautiful Flowerpot Islands that are world-renowned. Bruce Park also boasts a rough and rugged portion of the Bruce Trail, Canada’s oldest and longest footpath, which extends all the way from Tobermory to Niagara Falls.
