Goderich, Ontario

Goderich, Ontario sits on the eastern shores of Lake Huron (one of the Great Lakes of North America) and the Maitland River. Folklore of the town has said that Queen Elizabeth II once commented that it was “the prettiest town in Canada”, which led to Goderich’s motto “Canada’s Prettiest Town”.

The famous Goderich Lighthouse built in 1847.

The hot spot for shops and food is in the center of the town which is dubbed “the square”. While not an actual square it is an octagonal traffic circle and features a beautiful courthouse in the center. The town is also home to three beaches along the Huron shore and has a rich history of mining salt from the lake (the mine itself is almost as big as the town!). In Goderich it is said that you can view the sunset twice, once from the beach and again by climbing up the bluff overlooking Lake Huron

Goderich is one of my favourite little towns to visit in the summer and if you find yourself in Ontario you should also make the trip.
