You can get a perfect view from Highway 401. It's the World's Largest Apple, with the Canadian Flag flying above.

Giant apple.

The Big Apple

A pie factory, restaurant, souvenir shop and small amusement park is highlighted by a giant apple. You can go inside this [35-ft. tall] apple and view from the observation deck. The town is Colborne, not Cobourg, which is located about 10 minutes farther west. The apple is built with structural steel by Vout Welding of Cobourg.

World's Largest Apple

Just east of Toronto, Canada in the town of Cobourg, there is an apple that claims to be the largest in the world (it is the largest I've seen) Complete with observation deck on top, and a restaurant inside. Pretty cool. P.S. They sell apples. Who Knew?

[21st Century Colour, 08/19/1998]

Canadian tipster David Douglas: "The good folks who named the town in the early 1800s couldn't spell - they were aiming for "Coburg" - but an extra letter "o" crept in from somewhere. The town of Coburg in Germany is where Prince Albert, consort to Britain's Queen Victoria, originated. The settlements of Amherst and Hamilton in Ontario were joined to become today's Cobourg in honour of the marriage of Victoria and Albert."
