Dryden Hotels

The small lakeside city of Dryden sits neatly halfway between Winnipeg and Thunder Bay, secluded amidst the green forests and cool freshwater lakes of Ontario’s Kenora District. Naturally, year-round recreation abounds, from fishing and canoeing, to snowmobiling and hiking – but it’s not all about the great outdoors. Dryden’s bright lights illuminate a plethora of urban lures, with its vibrant community, thriving arts scene, and tantalizing culinary experiences.

Things to see

For 5000 years’ worth of local history, Dryden and District Museum makes a comprehensive starting point for history buffs. Alongside more than 10,000 artifacts, the museum displays both permanent and rotating exhibits, including a replica of a 1940’s living room and a display of historic children’s toys. Once frequented by the region’s Ancient Aboriginal people, Aaron Provincial Park sits beside the crystal clear waters of Thunder Lake – just 26 kilometers east of the city. Spanning 287 acres, the natural haven offers hiking trails which weave through idyllic white cedar and aspen forests, as well as kid’s playgrounds, campgrounds, and fruitful fishing spots. If a steady game of golf is more your idea of recreation, then Eagle’s Landing Golf Course offers a 9-hole round. With bluegrass fairways and bent grass greens, the club is also home to a restaurant; along with a pro shop should you need to stock up on golfing gear.

What’s more, many offer complimentary breakfasts to fuel your action-packed days, whilst free parking makes it that bit more convenient if you’re getting about yourself.

Where to stay

Many of the larger hotels in Dryden dot Ontario Highway 17, just a few blocks from the city’s downtown core, and a straight forward drive to Aaron Provincial Park. Adorned with murals and historic facades, downtown Dryden is the beating heart of the city, and offers plenty of scope when it comes to shopping, dining, art, and entertainment. Whether you want a fast food fix, a refined dining experience, brand name goods, or local one-of-a-kind gifts, there’s something to tickle everyone’s fancy. If staying in the ‘Wilderness City’ isn’t quite your idea of ‘getting away from it all’ however, you’ll find plenty of campsites nearby, in the wilderness itself.

How to get to Dryden

The city is served by Dryden Regional Airport, situated a convenient 8 kilometers away. A modest-sized hub, it provides regular flights to various destinations around Ontario operated by Bearskin Airlines, as well as scheduled services to Winnipeg’s James Armstrong Richardson International Airport. When you’ve arrived you can get into Dryden by taxi or by rental car. For those driving in, Dryden is easily accessed by the Trans-Canada Highway, which cuts straight through the city. As you arrive you’ll be greeted by “Max the Moose”, the city’s mascot that proudly stands 17 feet tall.
