Welcome to Rainy River
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.”
From its idyllic setting on the banks of its namesake waterway, The Town of Rainy River is the Gateway to Northwestern Ontario and southward, to neighbouring Baudette, Minnesota.
A center for bustling trade, comfortable amenities and relaxing past times, Rainy River is within easy access of the United States across a toll-free international bridge; 22 km (14 miles) from the magnificent Lake of the Woods; and a direct drive from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Rainy River is the ideal choice for family living and retirement – offers unparalleled opportunities as a vacation destination.
This welcoming full-service community of 1,000 residents links the surrounding population amid expanses of old-growth forests and lakes rich in wildlife and natural beauty. Combining prime habitat for moose, deer, numerous fish and bird species with historical significance and cultural diversity, the region can be appreciated for a wide variety of attractions, activities and special events.
Come and explore “the road less travelled”. Come to Rainy River!
