There’s nothing more magical during the holidays than quaint small towns decked out in twinkling lights and fresh snow. Head to one or all of Grey County’s downtowns for seasonal shopping, tasty treats or to just soak up the sights and sounds of the season. Check this list twice to get your holiday’s started.
The Beaver River Canoe Route begins north of Kimberley, and winds its way through open areas and wooded stretches, with several views of the Niagara Escarpment, ending at the village of Heathcote. Wildlife viewing opportunities are excellent, as is fishing. Short portages may be required to bypass log jams.
Parking is available at Access Point 1. The paddle from Access Point 1 to Access Point 2 takes you from Kimberley to Epping. This 10 kilometre stretch takes about 2 to 3 hours to paddle. This stretch of the river is rugged and scenic.
Edible landscape includes fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, unusual perennail vegetables and salad greens; designed to be self-fertile and low-maintenance (and delicious!). 10-5 Thursday-Sunday, May 15-October 11.
No facilities on site other than parking and signage, but the sights to be seen after a 15 minute walk through the quiet woods make up for that.
