Looking for the perfect day trip during Covid? Here’s something that is both a ‘destination’ and an activity that ticks all the safety boxes and becomes a bit of a scavenger hunt: following one of Ontario’s many rural Barn Quilt Trails!
Summer is the perfect time for a weekend getaway from Toronto to explore a pretty corner of Southern Ontario about 2 hours east. It’s where you’ll discover all of the grownup things to do in Prince Edward County: art, wine, food, and even giant sand dunes!
The impressionist paintings of Canada’s Group of Seven artists may be familiar to many of us in Canada (and many more of us now, thanks to actor Steve Martin’s high-profile interest in Lawren Harris.) But it’s only when you see the landscapes that inspired those evocative paintings that you can truly appreciate how these artists were able to capture the unique beauty found in certain places in Canada. One of those places is Killarney Provincial Park, in northeastern Ontario, and after doing 3 Killarney hikes with truly inspiring views, Henk and I were even more impressed with this Park’s beauty.
