In Grey County, gravel roads are a part of life; we live on them, commute on them and spend much of the winter sliding around on them. So it’s surprising when we hear some people are wary of the road less paved. But the thing is, if you want to avoid the crowds, experience incredible scenery and find those ‘secret spots’ you simply need to get off the asphalt. Don’t be afraid to turn off your GPS, fold up your map and go where your whimsy takes you. Here are a couple of our favourite gravel roads for taking in the best of the fall colours: without the crowds.
Fall fairs are ingrained in Grey County's history. Most still celebrate the season the way it has been done for well over a century in rural Ontario, with livestock and trained animal shows; bake-offs; fruit, vegetable, flower and preserve contests; parades; quilt and art shows; farm equipment displays; BBQ dinners and live entertainment.
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.
