“We live here and LOVE IT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

It's safe, reasonably priced and reasonably friendly. Mostly a Factory town, but lots of other jobs around. To just visit, the Motels & Hotels are pretty pricey. Book online is the best deals. Been here 25 years, raised family & plan to retire here. Don't forget to visit African Lion Safari... IT'S THE BEST, for all ages. .

“My gawd, the roads are terrible!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Rented a "puddle-jumper" from Enterprise and didn't realize how hard on the kidneys a little car and the neglected roads can add up bone-jarring discomfort.

“Quaint and full of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

The old town of Galt straddles the Grand River, and is undergoing a transformation without losing it's uniqueness. Many of the old historical buildings are being repurposed, and over the past year or so, there have been many new businesses locate there. It is a mix of old architecture and new (the Dunfield Theatre is set to open shortly). With lots of walking trails along the river, it is a beautiful setting, particuarly in the fall.

“A Special Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Galt has combined the historical buildings with modern convenience and retained it's charm. The center of the town is so unique, it allows movie companies to use the buildings for movies and TV productions - e.g. Murdock Mysteries.
