Santa Claus is comin' to town...or at least a town near you in Grey County! The holiday seasons brings us many parades and celebrations for the little ones to visit the man in red, and share their Christmas wish lists.
With the end of September comes the crisp, cool wave of the fall season. Hints of apple, cloves and cinnamon hang in the air as sweater weather creeps in. Whether you’re looking for adventure or just a beautiful getaway to enjoy the autumn colours, you’ve come to the right place. Break out the scarves, grab a latte and get ready to “fall” for Grey County this autumn!
Grey County…… It’s the smell of the fresh country air and breathtaking views that get me each time I visit. There are acres of fruit trees and grazing cows dotting the landscape. It’s peaceful here, no traffic jams – even on weekends it’s possible to get a restaurant reservation. To the west, you have Owen Sound and in the east Collingwood, Thornbury and Meaford reside in the middle.
The long weekend is drawing near and what better a reason to explore the Ontario. As we celebrate our country’s 150th birthday, rather than travelling abroad, stay and surround yourself with what Canada has to offer…. like stunning Grey County, Ontario.
Grey County has a hidden booze history as a former hotbed for bootleggers during the region’s long Prohibition period. These days, winemaking thrives in this emerging wine destination near Georgian Bay.
Sometimes the best adventures and most beautiful places are just a few hours away from home. Most days, I dream about long walks on sandy beaches in the Caribbean or a day exploring the souks of Marrakech. The truth is, right here in our backyard and just a few hours away from Toronto, lies an amazing place called Grey County.
