    We visited during the fall colours and the view is magnificent at this time of the year. The lookout is a short drive out of town and we’ll worth it.

    A short 10-15 minute walk back to the beautiful falls is well worth the time. We went after a 3 week dry spell and the falls were still amazing. Highly recommend. Only negative is that the access road is terrible the municipality needs to maintain it better, careful on the drive in.

    Great service, nice beers and very inexpensive! We came at a busy part of the evening and we were still catered for beautifully and the staff were lovely.

    The Art Gallery of Bancroft not only has excellent exhibitions, their gift boutique has hundreds of amazing items made by local artists.

    Not very busy, water shallow for a good while, great for kids or non swimmers, locals are friendly and there were no motorized watercrafts on the water while we visited, less worry with kids

    We went to the mineral museum not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by the large range of minerals and the detailed description of each. The details on each tag added a lot to the experience. The collection included some minerals we had never seen, and my wife has collected minerals for some years. A minor complaint is that the exhibits go all the way to the floor, making it necessary to almost crawl on the floor to see all of it - I cannot do that so I missed the bottom shelves.

    Our weekend at a cottage was great but we wanted to spend some time in Bancroft. My kids loved how big it was and that there was a skate park there too. They watched the people there for a bit. It was lots of fun!

    Millenium Park is a small little park not far from downtown Bancroft. Parking at location. Nice view of the river and a bridge with connecting biking/walking trails along the river. Picnic tables would make a nice lunch or dinner. Log cabin is unique.

    I am really interested in the north country and the hardy inhabitants who made its history, so it was interesting for me. It gives a picture of the slice of life in earlier times.

    I turned 70 this week. I have been going since I was a little kid! I have a spectacular rock garden after decades of collecting rocks from Princess. They had a magnificent selection of peristerite last I went last year. It's a very pretty moonstone type rock. Read the instructions. Go with a positive attitude. Let's rock!
