Bruce Peninsula Escape

Experience the charming communities of Bruce County. Located in Ontario between Georgian Bay and Lake Huron, this scenic peninsula is home to clear blue waters, exciting hiking trails, and a bird observatory. Hikers can experience cliff diving in the turquoise waters, or even spot rare reptiles hidden in the rocky expanses. Just a few hours north of Toronto, this park makes for a great day trip.

Experience the Badlands, Gorges, and St. Jacob’s

Explore the Mars-like red hills and gullies of the Cheltenham Badlands. Whether you’re a skilled hiker or just enjoy a scenic walk, stroll along the 2.2mile Cheltenham Badlands Trail before continuing to Elora Gorge Conservation Area. Complete your tour in St. Jacobs, the heart of North Waterloo’s Mennonite and Amish country, and get a taste of local at the St. Jacob’s Farmers Market.

Discover Prince Edward County

Prince Edward County, known simply as “The County,” makes a gorgeous weekend destination.

This region is famous for its over 35 wineries, each with its own niche. It’s also home to one of the most spectacular beaches in Canada, Sandbanks Dune Beach. Tour art, wine and culinary trails, support farmers and small businesses at Wellington’s Farmers Market, and cycle through gorgeous, gently rolling hills!

Charming Kingsville and Pelee Island

Head south to explore Canada’s most southern point in Kingsville on the shores of Lake Erie. Take in the flora and fauna of Point Pelee National Park—the first in Canada to be established for conservation.

The perfect spot for a quiet escape, visitors can enjoy cycling, swimming, browsing through the local shops, or indulging in the food and drink that the Island has to offer.

Explore The Country Roads to Kingston

Travel through the small communities from Port Hope to Kingston and get a feel for the area’s rich Canadian history, culture and scenic beauty. Top off your visit with a boat tour along the mighty St. Lawrence River and sail through the 1000 Islands—the namesake of the famous salad dressing.
