Grand Bend Beach

Reviewed By OutandAbout7777 - Cape Town Central, South Africa

The people walking on the beach were the friendliest we have met in a long time. It was clean, cold: off season and didn’t expect anything else. Because of the weather it was beautiful. Had the beach almost completely to ourselves. Wonderful!

Lambton Heritage Museum

The Lambton Heritage Museum is home to thousands of artifacts, documents and photographs that tell the story of the County of Lambton. At the time of its founding, the Museum displayed just two private collections, but now the extensive 50,000 square foot complex is home to more than 25,000 artifacts and 10,000 photographs depicting the history of Lambton County. At the Lambton Heritage Museum visitors can discover the only horse-drawn ambulance in Ontario, admire local historical views or walk by the steam engine which supported the largest industry in Bosanquet for most of the last century. The museum is home to a diverse collection that ranges from Canada's largest collection of pressed glass to last remaining stump puller produced by the Peterson Foundry in Sarnia. The museum's antique engines and stoves include models not known to survive in any other collection, private or public.

I visited in mid April and not all the exhibits were open for the season yet but I spent a lot of time looking at what was on exhibit inside. Rooms and rooms full of well preserved antiques. From pressed glass to furniture to woodstoves.
Amazing how much industry was once here.
You can go at your own pace. Wide aisles for strollers.
I look forward to seeing the out buildings and what's inside of them another time.
Well worth the trip and would be a good way to spend a rainy day.
Bring a picnic lunch and comfortable shoes !

Grand Bend Farmers' Market

Reviewed By cowgirlb - Grand Bend, Canada

Wednesday morning in Grand Bend in the Colonial Hotel parking lot - beside the Beer Store. Great little farmer's market. Lots of homemade bread, squares, tarts. Zelda has her famous spice mixtures and seasoned salt. Lots of fresh vegetables.
I was short on time, but managed to buy some lemon tarts - delish, and some fresh kale.
To my delight, there was even a live band playing!
There's also a variety of fresh flowers, jewellery, and much more. You never know what will be available from one week to the next.

Reviewed By DougNemeth - Grand Bend, Canada

We stopped in and checked out Dale's after not having been there in a long time. Surprisingly, we found some really good furniture along with the other items we knew to be there.
As usual there are a bunch of antique items that are very cool as well and I thnk that they have also brought items that compliment their other stuff.
I would recommend going in and sending some time to see what they have. You might find som fun stuff or even furniture that you will ike.
