Arboretum Hike

A favorite place of ours has always been the University of Guelph’s Arboretum. In fact, we like it so much, that we were married there, and we visit often year-round! While I will admit that I prefer it in the warm sunny months of May through September, with the Lilacs in full bloom or the beautiful colours of autumn, in Canada, you take what you can get!

The Farmer’s Market – A wonderful friendly place where you can get anything from fresh farm produce, to jewelry to beautiful hand-knit clothes.

The Boathouse – A great little Ice-Cream Shoppe nestled beside the River where the ice-cream portions are generous, and you can enjoy a stroll across the covered bridge.

Riverside Park – With its floral clock and carousel, this is a favorite spot for young and old alike.

Aberfoyle Antique Market – Every Sunday from May to October. Search for treasures among the hundreds of vendors at this outdoor market.

Church of Our Lady Immaculate – The Cathedral opens its doors for free tours on the first Sunday of every month. Whether or not you’re a history buff, the beauty of this historic building will amaze you!

The Scottish Festival and Highland Games – In the nearby town of Fergus, Ontario. The festival draws crowds of thousands per year with heavy events, food, music, vendors and more.

Strom’s Farm – Our favorite local Fall destination! Pick your own pumpkin, navigate the corn maze, or purchase fresh produce from the friendly staff at the Farm!

These are only a few of the great things about our town. Just thinking about them makes me happy…now, if only this snow would disappear…
