1. The gorgeous fall colours
Of course, South Georgian Bay is well-known in Ontario for its beautiful fall colours. People regularly drive here from cities like Toronto to experience the colours and take photos. Now imagine if you could see those picturesque views every day, simply while driving to work or while on an after-dinner walk around the neighbourhood. Living up here means that you’ll see the beautiful colours every time you look out your window.
2. The perfect sweater weather
This fall especially, we’ve been so lucky with the temperatures. While it’s been warm so far, we’re getting the best features of summer weather and the best features of winter wrapped up into one. The warm temperatures mixed with cool breezes make for a comfortable forecast.
3. There’s always an event to attend
There’s something to do up here in every season, and Fall is no different. Many farms and ranches in the area open their doors for apple picking, pumpkin harvesting, corn mazes, and other fun fall activities. And these aren’t just great for families – couples and young adults will enjoy things like the spooky events that pop up for Halloween!
4. The shopping and dining
At this time of year, stores are turning over from their summer to winter products. And with South Georgian Bay’s variety of local shops, you’ll find many great fall-themed products for good prices. Not to mention the local restaurants and their fall specials that incorporate local, in season food. Fallicious in the Blue Mountain Village is just an example of one event that sees over 10 local restaurants present a $15 lunch and $30 for dinner special, from steak and seafood to mouthwatering burgers. These events are made especially for locals, with the best deals happening mid-week!
5. The hiking trails
Just like with many things in this area, hiking can be done in every season. But fall is our personal favourite. Many things we mentioned above like the temperature, the fall colours, and the local events, all pair together to help you make a perfect day of hiking. The area has plenty of hiking trails where you can experience beautiful sceneries, and the trails continue into the local towns so you can walk over and finish your hike off with a delicious meal!
