Welcome to Bala, ON!

At the core of Ontario's Muskoka cottage region, about 160 km (101 mi) north of Toronto is the town of Bala, a picturesque spot that several hundred people call home throughout the year, though this number can quadruple in the summer months. Many people have paid a visit to Bala, including famed author Lucy Maud Montgomery in 1922, and though she only stayed for two weeks, Bala's Museum has a number of artifacts and memorabilia pertaining to the talented Anne of Green Gables scribe. Those in search of a nightlife can cut a rug and down a few bevies at the Kee, a historic dance hall that acts as a nightclub and licensed concert venue in Bala. Though most people head to Bala in the summertime to enjoy the lake, autumn is also a great season to visit, as the annual Cranberry Festival takes place on the weekend after the Canadian Thanksgiving. The festival features plenty of vendors, live entertainment and performances to keep everyone in the family busy.
