Great Ways to enjoy at the New Tecumseth Attractions

 

In the county of Simcoe, south-central of Ontario, lies the town of New Tecumseth. It is a metropolis where Alliston, Tottenham, and Beeton are located. The Nottawasaga River meanders along the area – adding to the rural charm of the town. The name of the town was derived from a famous Shawnee Indian Chief, Tecumseh who fought for the British in 1813. New Tecumseth attractions are all over its four villages are located and along the Georgian and Simcoe bays.

 

In Beeton, there is architecture dating back to the 1800s. The firehall is a wood and brick structure with a hose tower. This building dates back to 1894. The Beeton Agricultural Fair grounds have six stone posts on which are inscribed the names of those who died in World War II. In Tottenham, you can ride the restored coaches that goes back to the 1920’s version. The ride will take you over the rails that once connected Hamilton with Collingwood and Barrie. As the vintage train chugs along you can view the meandering countryside.

 

The Potato Festival of Alliston is one of the New Tecumseth attractions. This is supported by civic clubs. This started in 1972, at the time Alliston was the biggest potato town of Ontario and the whole of Canada. In Tottenham, the Falconry Centre houses over 200 birds of prey. The site is a medieval courtyard and is open to visitors from June 15 to September 4. Once daily at one in the afternoon, the spectacular flight of the Raptors can be witnessed.

This is one of the interesting and intriguing New Tecumseth attractions, which can be an educational as well as interesting experience for children.
