Huntsville is the biggest town in the Muskoka Region of Ontario. Huntsville is situated in the hilly terrain of the Canadian Shield and is spotted with many lakes.
Due to its natural beauty and bountiful natural resources Huntsville is known as a major tourist destination drawing people from around the world. There are three large lakes within the township bounds, Mary Lake, Lake Vernon, and Fairy Lake, as well as countless smaller lakes. The Muskoka River gusts its way through the city’s downtown, while the Big East River empties into Lake Vernon. The pleasant Arrowhead Provincial Park is also situated within city limits.
The Canadian Shield causes many spectacular hills and broad landscapes throughout the region. The city centre is full of hills and steep roadways and while there are flat low-lying areas much of the city lies on uneven terrain.
Huntsville is backing a number of arts festivals, including Huntsville Festival of the Arts. Other arts activities contain the annual Muskoka Novel Marathon and the Film North - Huntsville International Film Festival.
