Visiting the Famous Lighthouses of Ontario
The Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway offer maritime history to rival the east and west coasts.


St. Thomas, known as the Railway Capital of Canada, is a charming peaceful and picturesque small Victorian town located in the heart of southwestern Ontario. It grew and prospered during the railroad era from 1856 to the 1950s and has since very successfully diversified its economy.

Be sure to visit the Elgin County Railway Museum with its fine collection of vintage locomotives, baggage cars and cabooses. Stroll through the excellent horticultural and waterworks gardens in both Pinafore and Waterworks Parks. Hike the historic Talbot Trail and the Trans Canada Trail. An interesting historical footnote is that in 1985, the town erected a life-size statue of Jumbo, the famous Barnum and Bailey circus elephant, who was unfortunately killed in St. Thomas in 1885 by a locomotive.

St. Thomas accommodations include comfortable hotels and motels.
