Welcome to Cottage Country’s  Fall Daytripping Feature

Fall is here, and with the cooler weather now is a perfect time to throw on a sweater, gas up the car and hit the road for some amazing day trips! Daytripping in Cottage Country offers so much to see and do, and local businesses always have new and amazing finds just in time for the crisp season of Thanks. 

Perhaps apple picking is on your autumn bucket list, it is always a great afternoon adventure; and often the orchard gift shops are full of delicious treats, jams, jellies and cider. If roaming the pumpkin patch for the perfect Halloween gourd is more your style, the countryside is abundant with pick your own patches. Hobart’s on Stoney Lake has an amazing patio to sit out on while enjoying a breathtaking view of the lake, and you definitely won’t leave hungry with their abundant menu. Abbey Gardens has the whole month of October planned with fun events, and they are offering a takeout turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. Another stop on the fall must-see list is the Haliburton Highlands, they have quite the assortment of events happening in September for their Hike Haliburton Festival. Plus, the leaves! Oh, the leaves this time of year in cottage country are breathtaking, so even if you don’t have a destination in mind a little drive with a coffee and a friend to see the blazing reds, oranges and yellows makes for a memorable afternoon. 

Whatever your plans this fall, we hope you and your family stay safe, have fun and support our local economies and vibrant communities.
