Bracebridge Falls is a great mix between urban and nature. The gushing falls are a real sight to see, especially in the spring thaw. During the winter, the Silver Bridge is draped in lights which provides a nice backdrop for the falls if taking photos....More

Something I grew up with, and the reason the town located here. It is quite nice with the walkway, and the waterwheel at the site of the 19th century gristmill. Nice walkway under the railroad bridge to another falls, and a restaurant and the local...More

One of my favourite spots in Bracebridge. My daughter was married here. The photos are amazing. The most romantic setting.

Sadly the Bracebridge Falls disappoint as an Attraction mainly because in the past a dam for generating hydro power and a highway bridge were built virtually at the point in the river where its water would begin to fall. As a result, the volume of...More

The "falls" are nice if you happen to be in Bracebridge but don't make a special trip to visit. Nothing to see except water cascading from a dam. The falls is nice to see once but the walking trail leading down from the falls was...More

This place is not even a fall it's a dam. View is just ok. There is dead city downtown next to it and a free parking available. Don't waste your time and energy.

Only a short walk from downtown Bracebridge – there is plenty of parking. There is a small lake for swimming and boating. However, the falls themselves are not that impressive. The bridge and buildings around them detract from the look of the falls. Definitely wouldn't...More

Cascading waterfalls in the centre of a small, charming town. Walkways, visitor information centre and a short stroll to the main street with eateries and boutique-style stores. Good spot for a quick picnic with (limited) free parking.

Lunch was exceptional and staff was very friendly and accommodating. Commentary as we cruised was both humorous and informative. A group of 8 went on the cruise including friends from Pennsylvania and they all enjoyed it.
