Praise for the 4th edition:
"The sights stand out for their splendor or quirkiness. Some are natural wonders, others are man-made. They might be tricky to find, or perched so close that you'll wonder how you missed them."
-- Toronto Star

This new edition has 160 attractions for more Ontario fun.

Top 160 Unusual Things to See in Ontario gives readers, local travelers and out-of-province visitors -- all 10 million of them -- even more to see and do. The previous editions of this book have sold more than 100,000 copies.

Author Ron Brown is an expert on the unusual. In his relentless quest to discover yet more of Ontario's rarities, Brown has traveled nearly everywhere in the province, and since this book's previous edition he has been on the road again. From the many new destinations he has found, he has selected 10 new ones for this edition:

  • The Huron Fishing Weirs
  • Muskoka's Torrance Barrens
  • The Log Heritage of the Ottawa Valley
  • The Ruins of Fort St. Joseph
  • Toronto's Graffiti Alleys
  • Ontario's Alligators
  • Trenton's Ad Astra Stones
  • The Stoney Creek Pillar
  • The Coldwater Mill
  • Almaguin Highlands' Field of Screams.

Thoroughly researched and written in an inviting style, Ron Brown's descriptions offer fascinating stories with background, location and accompanying color photographs. Most places are easy to reach from Ontario's major population centers and border American cities and towns.

All destinations are updated with detailed maps that pinpoint every location and the entries are grouped by general location. Ontario is an exciting travel destination filled with beaches, cities and major tourist destinations, but for those who want to see the heart and soul of the province, it takes a knowledgeable guide with a passion for the unusual. Ron Brown is that guide.
