If you strongly believe that your phone should eat first when it comes to photogenic food, donuts from Georgian Bakery might be just what you’re looking for. They offer a wide variety of flavours, and the donuts look almost too pretty to eat. Next time you are downtown Midland pick up a donut, or six, and have a sweet photo shoot.

4 – Penetanguishene Rotary Champlain Wendat Park

Located along the shores of Georgian Bay, Penetanguishene Rotary Champlain Wendat Park is a beautiful place to head for a walk and to snap some pictures.
