Small Towns of Canada: What Makes Them Special?

causeyville signboard

Last week we, the 1000 Towns of Canada team, woke up and went to bed thinking about you – the 1000 Towns of Canada Project audience.

peopleWhy do you like:

  • Country?
  • Town?
  • Neighbourhood?
  • Street?
  • House?
  • Room?
  • Arm-chair?..

Why do you choose one and ignore another?

We wanted to find out what would be the obvious, and not so obvious, reasons/magnets that would spark an irresistible desire in you to visit a small town.

It would be something different from the attractions of a big city, right?

So, it must be something SPECIAL!

Finally, one example of what makes a Small Town special for us.

A month ago we visited Elora, a nice town 100 kilometres west of Toronto.

In early October Elora hosts the Horse and Hound parade.

Something special!

See you in a week,

1000 Towns of Canada team
