North Bay Area with a 4 year old boy

I'm heading to North Bay for a long weekend in October with my 4 year old son. I'm trying to find something interesting for him to do while we are there, instead of just keeping him couped up in the house. Is there anything in the area for him? I'm willing to travel a little out of the way to get to it. Pony rides, candy stores, apple picking/pumpkin picking, waterfalls? anything? Thanks.

North Bay has a nice waterfront that has both a Mini Train to ride and two Carousells. Threre is most always somting to do at our waterfront. I am not sure if they will be open in October they are both more of a summertime thing but if they are open your 4 year old will certainly enjoy them. Just outside of North Bay(about 2 km) on Hwy 17 heading west towards Sudbury there is Duscheney Falls. There is a parking area off the highway so you can not miss them. Great trails and there is always people there so you will feel safe. The fall colors are at there peek right now but there should still be lots of fall colours if you are only a couple of weeks from now.

There is also the Chief Commanda II. This is cruise that will bring you around Lake Nippising they have several different tours available. If you Google it, I am sure you can find more information.

Happy Travels

Thank you for your response. The mini train and the carousels are close a week before we get there. But i will be sure to look at the cruise and the falls! Thanks again!
