It’s the perfect time to see fall colours in Ontario! Algonquin Park is already at peak viewing time. There’s nothing more disappointing than going on a lovely fall drive only to discover that all the leaves have fallen off and the fall colours are over.
Don’t let that happen to you! There are two awesome websites that I recommend to check the status of the fall colours. Parks Ontario has a dated report that tells you the status of the fall colours and leaf coverage at each of their provincial parks.
On a cloudy day in Thunder Bay, I visited the Amethyst Panorama mine. As we drove down dirt roads, the GPS didn’t know where we were. Luckily, there were helpful signs reassuring us that we were going the right way. And we were! (more…)
I love waterfalls, so couldn’t pass up the chance to visit the second highest waterfall in Ontario during a visit to Thunder Bay. (more…)
It doesn’t get anymore East Coast than a lighthouse. I was thrilled to be able to stay at the West Point Lighthouse for once night on Prince Edward Island during my East Coast Road Trip! (more…)
When I arrived in Prince Edward Island, I had priorities. Specifically, lobster priorities. I vowed to consume as much lobster as possible, and what better way to start than with a classic lobster roll? (more…)
In a small inn in Edmunston, New Brunswick, we had the best meal of our East Coast trip. We stayed overnight and had a very comfortable stay in their beautiful inn.
The Les Jardin Inn has a menu that features local meats, cheeses and seasonal foods, prepared with care, and is Acadian inspired. Our meal took place in a small private dining room, and started off with an amuse bouche of tiny sweet shrimp in a pesto sauce.
There’s so much to see and do in Ontario! Did you know that you can visit the southern most point in Canada for a weekend in Ontario? I went to Pelee Island this summer and had a blast! It’s about a 3.5 hour drive from Toronto, and then a 1.5 hour ferry ride. Here’s what I did while I was there!
