Summer may have come and gone, but there are still plenty of fall activities to enjoy! The colourful scenery and cooler temperatures mean you can continue to enjoy the great outdoors without melting under the sweltering sun.
Here are a few ideas to help you make unforgettable memories this fall!
Did you know that Canada produces a wide variety of different wines? Ontario is one of the provinces at the forefront of this growing industry and deserves recognition!
If you love visiting wineries, you don’t have to fly all the way to France. You can get your wine fix right here at home by visiting several cities across Ontario.
The Wine Country Ontario website has compiled a comprehensive list of the top wineries to visit this fall. They’re divided into five major regions:
The website also allows you to create your own custom #madeincanada wine tasting itinerary!
As the new school year gets underway, university football is back in full swing across Canada!
Rep your favourite team with a branded toque and jersey, and make sure to arrive early on campus so you can tailgate with your friends. To have even more fun while waiting for the first field goal, why not bring some snacks or food to cook up on the barbecue?
Although lovingly called a highway, it should really be called Road 27 since it only has one lane going in each direction from Kleinburg (Vaughan) to Holly (Barrie). It’s this 59.5 km stint that interests us the most!
This road winds its way through beautiful places like Nobleton Township where you can stop and hit a few golf balls. If you’re travelling with your pooch, consider taking them to the Bow Wow Country Club in Schomberg where they can be pampered and play with other dogs while surrounded by scenic views.
Continue cruising through the rolling farmland to the town of Innisfil and the aptly named Cookstown. Check out the Iron Horse Bar & Grill on Church Street and The Cookstown Pub on Queen Street for a tasty lunch or dinner.
If you’re visiting earlier in the day, park your car on Queen Street and visit Toast Homestyle to gobble up some gourmet fare.
Further south in Ontario and from east to west, you’ll find plenty of apple orchards to enjoy with your family. Some orchards have other fruits available to pick other than apples.
Homestead Orchards in Sutton is one such orchard where you can buy strawberries and corn at different times of the year. They have a mouth-watering selection of apples to pick, including Gingergold, MacIntosh, Jonagold, Red Delicious and many others!
On the east side of Ontario, just under an hour outside of Ottawa, Mountain Orchards offers a wide selection of apples, including Spartan, Empire, Honey Gold and Ambrosia, just to name a few.
Both orchards will also spoil your taste buds with baked goods made on-site!
