North Bay and West Nipissing AreaNorth Bay is a community of great diversity. Situated between Lake Nipissing and Trout Lake, it is a city whose recreation is strongly focused on water sports and activities. North Bay is also a city of parks, trails and numerous activities, reflective of a community that is vibrant and growing, halfway between the north and the south, representative of the interests of both.
The beautiful Lake Nipissing waterfront is particularly loved for its fabulous sunsets, its varying moods from peaceful to turbulent, and its endless opportunities for fun. Here, you’ll find a lovely sand beach and the famous carousel and miniature railway.
A voyage aboard the Chief Commanda II is one of the great features offered when visiting North Bay. The waterfront along the shoreline is the focus of increased recreational developments, including swimming, windsurfing, water-skiing, and many more.
The experience in downtown North Bay has something unique to offer as well. There are year-round festivals, arts entertainments, music, fine arts, and a vast range of shopping opportunities. A Farmers Market adds to that shopping experience with fresh produce, plants, preserves, baked goods, handmade crafts, local artwork, and more!
For a quieter experience, there are many trails in and around North Bay where forests, sparkling clean water, and rugged rocky terrain combine to help visitors leave hectic memories far behind.
