Pluses: Tons of things to do all year round! Spring starts off with 25-30 degrees, orchards in full bloom and there's a great ski to sea race. Summer fun of camping, downtown night life. GOLF, GOLF, GOLF!!! You can golf from March to November! Fall festivals and fruit picking. Wine tours..so many wineries...so little time! Winter, how about skiing a 35 minute drive to Big White! A very mild winter that only lasts about 2.5 months! It has year round entertainment, and the beauty of the valley with the surrounding mountains is breathtaking!

Minuses: Everyone's heard all the great stuff about Kelowna and surrounding area and there all wanting a piece of it! The population is growing at an unbelieveable rate - causing the housing market to shoot up past Vancouver and Toronto. The roads cant sustain all the people coming!

A great place to... A great place to live all year round and have everything you need!

Pluses: The outskirts of Espanola, and small little communities are the only pluses to the actual community. Manitoulin Island, several lakes with great fishing & camping. Tourism that has to travel through hwy6 to Manitoulin keeps our town from sinking.

Minuses: The stink from the mill. Alot of nosy people that want to know everything that's going on - because there is nothing else to do there. If you dont work at the mill you have no future....but then there's all the layoffs at the mill. There is no future for residents of Espanola, the curse of Elliot Lake is upon us! The sad thing about Espanolians is that they think there's no other place in the world to be! Like, it's the top of the world if your kid made it to the mill!

A great place to... Sit at home and write on your computer.

Pluses: This is a town I grew up in from around 1960 to 1971. I have so many great memories...from the wonderful closeness of small town life to the wonders of growing up in the country. I keep checking to see if any houses are for sale. If they are I will be moving!

Minuses: No store or any services.

Pluses: Beautiful Branch River runs through the heart of the community. This river is known all over the province for its trout and salmon fishing. It is a very scenic little village. From August 9 to August 19, 2007, Branch has hosted a very successful Come Home Year, thanks to a dedicated bunch of volunteers. For eleven days, the place was teeming with visitors. Former residents filled the Landwash, the Gut, the Easter and Wester Coves, the meadows, the Flats, everywhere.

Minuses: No minuses! It is a great place, especially in the summer.

A great place to... go fishing, go hunting, to hear some wonderful singers, to watch some great dancers, to get back to the land.

Other info: You can reach Branch by road from two directions, Route 100 and Route 92.
