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!
Take a hike! Point Pelee National Park
What do you do when the February blues have got you down, and you feel the need for a little break? You take a staycation, of course. In a city as vast as Toronto, we’re spoiled for our choice of hotels.
I had been obsessively watching the Drake Devonshire hotel being built via blog posts and tweets for months. I had never been to Prince Edward County, and despite hearing from all my foodie friends and the interwebs what a foodie mecca the county was, I waited to ensure that my visit would coincide with their opening date.
When they revealed their opening date, I planned the perfect weekend, grabbed my boyfriend (okay, so he drove.) and headed up there.
It was pretty much heaven. (more…)
I had such a good time camping at Bon Echo in 2012 that I went back again this summer! Bon Echo is a massive provincial park about 4 hours away from Toronto. The campsites are spacious and secluded. (more…)
Errington’s Wilderness Island in Wabatongushi Lake, Ontario is like no place I’ve ever been to before.
Just getting there is an adventure. You can only access the resort by plane or boat. We opted for the boat.
Savour Stratford is a delicious culinary festival featuring award-winning chefs, local producers, and lots of opportunities to eat amazing food and wine.
I spent the weekend checking out the event and had a great time. (more…)
You can’t truly comprehend how huge Ontario is until you’ve ridden for 10 hours on a train…and are in still in Ontario. It’s amazing to think that in Europe, I would have passed through any number of counties in that amount of time. We are incredibly lucky to have acres of pristine wilderness. This summer, one of my Ontario bucket list dreams came true, and I was able to ride the magical Agawa Canyon Tour Train!
Being in Sault Ste Marie alone was a big deal for me- it was the furthest north that I’ve ever been in Ontario. I was about to travel even further- the train takes you 114 miles away from Sault Ste Marie.
