It's been years since I was here last and it's changed quite a bit since I remember. Paths are easy to walk with lots of benches and rest areas along the way. Fairly priced. Perfect for all ages. If your into history this is defiantly the place for you. It was great being able to go inside some of the... More

Enjoyed visiting Fanshawe Village. It is on a smaller scale than Upper Canada but enjoyable and informative!

For a very different thanksgiving experience we went to the pioneer village. They offer your typical traditional thanksgiving feast and you can enjoy a stroll around the pioneer village before dinner.

We have been to Kings Landing in New Brunswick and this is not nearly as complete or well run. Hard to find staff on the property and few exhibits. We enjoyed walking through the village but it could be so much more than it is.

Very entertaining if you find history entertaining. Nice reminder of where we came from. If you can come for the exhibition baseball game you will be thoroughly entertained. Lots of old building and people wearing period correct clothing.

I found this on the internet while planning our route from Niagara falls to Mackinac Island in Mich. It is a bit out of the way from the freeway, 20 miles, but a nice break. We arrived on Tuesday, the day after Canada's Memorial Day on Monday. All the workers were pleasant and friendly. It was, as my granddaughter would... More
