Grand Bend, ON

With everyone drooling over the iPhone 5, I thought I'd swim upstream with something, ah, a little less aesthetically pleasing. Beach towns like Grand Bend are lovely places to spend time, but it's just as true some of the shops and eateries along the main drag leaving down to the waterfront are more than a little gritty.
Of course, that's all part of the appeal. Pristine and upscale just wouldn't feel the same.
