London is proud of the natural beauty that surrounds it and is eager for you to explore it all. Whether you stroll through the parks, take advantage of the nearby lakes or walk along the picturesque streets, you will love all that it has to offer.
The impressive Thames River is one of its more prominent features. The parks located throughout the city also provide you with a wealth of nature to enjoy. Springbank Park is one of the largest in London and provides you with a scenic river walk. The Storybook Gardens is a great place to bring the family and Victoria Park is the location of many events and festivals held throughout the year.
One of its most famous residents is Sir Frederick G. Banting, who made the discovery of insulin. The Banting House was his home for only a few years but does provide some insight into his life. The Museum of London is filled with unique treasures with early paintings of the area being one of its most visited attractions. Nearby lies the Eldon House, which is another lovely home worth visiting. Those interested in shopping will find many wonderful stores and boutiques throughout the area. However, the Farmers Market, located at the Covent Garden, is a must. You can find almost anything here and will truly enjoy the wares being offered.
London is also a great place to party. How can it not be when the Labatt Brewery has called in home for over a century? Labatt is one of Canadas most loved beers. There are fantastic events held throughout the year. The International Childrens Festival brings out families from all over the area. Another great place to enjoy a family outing can be found at the Western Fair Event Centre. The Ribfest is a fantastic party and is one of the largest of its kind in North America. Sunfest is another great event where music and cultures from around the globe are celebrated. Those who prefer the performing arts will be treated to amazing performances at the Grand Theatre. Dining in London is another great reason to come and is the perfect beginning, or ending, to a wonderful evening. The seafood here is really quite incredible and how can it not be when Lake Huron, Lake Ontario and Lake Erie surround it. There are of course many other cuisines available for you to enjoy as well.
Crack open an ice cold Labatt, enjoy the scenery or take part in the many events. However you spend your time, you will be glad you came.
