If you're going to Chatham, you must check out Wheels - a fantastic family resort. If you're into exploring Chatham's extraordinary natural beauty, check out Rondeau Provincial Park, and Essex County-Point Pelee National Park.
Most intriguing about the Rondeau Provincial Park, in particular, is its long sand spit, which looks like a narrow bar of land extending from the shore, 8 km into Lake Erie. (The only other sand spit like this one is in Florida.)
While Rondeau Provincial Park does allow people to own cottages, the allotted cottage area, and the nearby churches and yacht club, may be demolished in 2017. Find out how you can get involved in preserving this Cottage Delight.
