Things to do in OWEN SOUND with kids

Would you rather…explore a secret bunker, step back in time and experience life as a pioneer, explore caves and mine for gemstones, feast in the 11th century, or enjoy a rodeo at a fun fair?

Can’t decide? You don’t have to – they are ALL in Ontario!

From amazing cities, quaint country towns to incredible wonders of the world (Niagara Falls anyone?) – Ontario is an incredible place to visit with kids!

That secret bunker? Diefenbunker Canadas Cold War Museum was built to protect from attacks and is now a fascinating museum.

Only Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament! King Phillippe awaits!

Then get your kicks at Western Fair with that super fun rodeo!
