    VISIT CASINO RAMA IN ORILLIA

    by LoriPori Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Casino Rama

    Located north-east of Stayner in Orillia, CASINO RAMA is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Over 2,300 slot machines, more than 110 gaming tables, poker room, 9 restaurants, weekly big-name concerts and a 300 room all-suite luxury hotel & spa.
    Hans and I went in to see it and it was absolutely beautiful. Native Indian inspired interior with wood ceiling beams. Hansi did OK on the slot machines, but I decided not to play as you got vouchers for your winnings instead of coins. I like the jingle of the coins. What can I say!!!

    VISIT LAKE COUCHICHING IN ORILLIA

    Boardwalk - Lake Couchiching

    Steps from Downtown Orillia is a beautiful waterfront park on LAKE COUCHICHING.
    Hans, Jane and I parked the car, got out and walked along the boardwalk. Folks were enjoying the warm, sunny Saturday afternoon on their boats.
    Also available is the Orillia Boat Cruises that we saw sailing on Lake Couchiching. So all in all -- a very lovely spot to spend the day.

    What struck me, was the many barns left to rot away. Accidently we saw houses too left to fall apart. Weird in my opinion but hey! I m not a real Canadian eh?

    This is one of the, I think, 3 Beattie farms along the road to Collingwood (gotta check that). With the sun on it, they are just gorgeous especially with the snow.
