I thought Tudhope in Orillia was Just a Shoe Store
Well, as I found out driving Waalewiener (Hansi) and LoriPori (Lori) around, there is also Tudhope Park.After coming back from Casino Rama, it was nice to stop here, sit in the shade, and watch the children and families play in the water. Oh, yes, and also enjoy an ice cream...
Couchiching Could Mean Casino Rama Money Sound!
The lake near Casino Rama is Lake Couchiching. As my traveling companions, Hansi & Lori, commented, that sounds like what is happening at the Casino - money disappearing... couch-iching! So, those who named the lake many many years ago, knew what was going to happen...
Check out what is happening by the water
Every weekend during the summer, there seems to be something going on by the waterfront. This weekend was Christmas in June, where the boats in the harbour were to be decorated. Unfortunately, they hadn't really done much when we got there around 12:30pm. But, it was still...

A variety of choices: Can't Decide Where to Eat?
I stood outside the Tim Horton's at the corner of Memorial Drive and Highway 12 and looked up and down Memorial Drive. So many places to choose from.
It all depends upon what you're looking for... Tim Horton's, Arby's, McDonald's, A&W, East Side Mario's, Swiss Chalet,...
Sweet Dreams Ice Cream: Summer Heat Calls for Some Ice Cream
We were hot and needing some cooling indulgance, when there was a little park with an ice cream stand! What better for a lovely summer day. The big decision was what flavour to enjoy. The next problem was whether we could eat them before the heat of the day melted them all...
Ossawippi Express Dining Cars: All Aboard the Dining Cars
Orillia seems to have a thing for railroads. At any rate there are a lot of railroad things in Orillia. One of the best restaurants with a railroad theme is the Osawippi Express. It consists of three or four vintage railroad cars coverted into dining rooms. Each car has a...
McCabes: All You Can Eat BBQ
You know that old saying about where ever the truckers eat the food must be good and plentiful. I'd say that is probably true about this place. It is definitely not haute cuisine and as you approach Orillia you will see roadsigns advertising their "All you eat Ribs on...
Ossawippi Express: You Won't Get Railroaded Here-OOPS CLOSED NOW
First thing that catches your eye is that you are boarding a train. The restaurant is made up train-cars dating back through the ages with, I believe, the oldest from 1896. Wonderful old world feel in part, but also modern day comforts.It has been a while since I was there,...
