Bracebridge became an official town of Canada in 1875. The town's postmaster, who typically named the towns, named it after a book he was reading at the time, entitled Bracebridge Hall, by Washington Irving (published in England, 1822).
Bracebridge is an ideal place for a Cottage vacation because its scenery is spectacular. The town is built around a magnificent waterfall on the Muskoka River, and is situated near several other beautiful waterfalls like Wilson's and High Falls. Be sure to take your camera and to catch all the brilliant photo opportunities!
Inspired by the fact that Bracebridge is located at 45 degrees latitude, which is halfway between the equator and the North Pole, a group of townspeople in 1955 created Santa's Village, an all-ages theme park celebrating Christmas and Santa Claus. This theme park continues to be thrive today! Be sure to check it out!
