Paris Ontario is known as the Prettiest Town in Canada. I love Paris because it has most of what you need, and yet the shops and restaurants are very unique. It has a small-town charm that you can’t find in most places, and the residents are simply amazing.

I love to take a walk down Grand River street, which is lined with cute little shops and restaurants. You can find everything from clothing boutiques to antique stores and cafes. The best part is that these shops are locally owned and operated, so you know you’re supporting the local economy when you shop there. Plus, it’s always nice to see the friendly faces of the shop owners as they greet customers.

The restaurants are also great in Paris. There are plenty of options for every taste, from classic Italian to Mexican cuisine. Whether you want a quick bite , or dinner with a view, there are many choices. The town is full of history and has one of the oldest buildings in Canada. One of the most interesting historical structures is the Nith River Bridge, which was built in 1875. This bridge is one of the earliest known surviving concrete rigid-frame bridges in Ontario.

The bridge is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike to enjoy. It’s a beautiful structure that is made out of limestone and has an arched design. There are two towers at either end with a walkway connecting them. It’s a great place to take pictures, go for a stroll, or just sit and enjoy the view of the river below. During the summer months the bridge is adorned with beautiful hanging flowers. The bridge is also home to many birds, making it an ideal spot for bird watching. In addition, there are several parks near the bridge where locals and visitors can enjoy outdoor activities such as fishing, canoeing, and hiking. Paris Ontario truly is one of Canada’s most beautiful and historic towns towns!
