|Perth, Ontario. Never heard of it? Well, you're missing out. Voted as the 'prettiest town in the country' Perth is a fabulous spot for a romantic get-away, a quiet weekend away with the family, or a stop-over on a larger tour of Ontario or Canada.
Located on the eastern side of Southern Ontario 83 kms from Ottawa, Perth truly is one of the prettiest towns you'll ever visit. Full of elegant architecture and hospitable locals the city warms your heart and just makes you 'feel good.' Simple and charming, Perth is full of beautiful little restaurants, cafes and B&B's. Time just seems to float by effortlessly in Perth.
But the city has a very playful and cheeky side to it as well. In 2010 Perth held the historic "Kilt Run" in which 1067 kilt-clad runners (Guinness World Record!) crossed the finish line, including the mayor, John Fenik. An avid sailor, a writer and all around great guy, John treated the GCAT crew lunch and gave us a tour of his town. Like all Perthians, John is proud of his town and welcomes all to come and enjoy some time in Perth. Be wary though, he doesn't buy every visitor lunch! ... Enjoy Perth!
