My mother grew up in orillia and actually met Gordon Lightfoot several times. I myself love orillia and visit my grandparents who live there frequently. Has anyone here ever been to or lived in Orillia? tell me about it.

Erin, I've been there a few times. Once back in the 70s and again more recently.
I was there once with Char and we had a great time 'tracking' Lightfoot haunts. I love Orillia. Its a pretty town and I have always found the residents to be friendly.
And they are in the main extremely proud of Gord and willing to share their Gordie moments with a visitor.
Orillia should be a 'must see' for all Lightfoot followers.
