Ontario road trips in Fall

5 Ontario road trips to go on this fall

It will soon look like fall outside as the trees begin to change colour. You really have no excuse for not experiencing some of the beautiful nature over the coming weeks, as there are plenty of picturesque spots throughout Ontario.

Read ahead for the five road trips you should go on this fall:

Dundas Peak

If you’re looking for something close to the GTA, head a little west to see Dundas Peak, which is situated just outside Hamilton.

Hike to the top of any hill to experience some of the most breath-taking views that this province has to offer. If you’re a fan of changing leaves, Dundas Peak it an absolute must-visit destination this fall. Also, since it’s so close, you’ll likely only need half a day to see everything.

St Jacob’s

If you’re willing to travel a little further west, St Jacob’s offers arguably the most unique experience on this list. You’ll feel like you’ve gone back in time due to the strong Mennonite presence in the area. Go for a horse-drawn trolley tour or check out St. Jacob’s Market when you’re there.

While it’s not as close as Dundas Peak, St. Jacob’s is just north of Waterloo, making it a perfect destination for a Saturday day trip. Of course, you can also check out the nearby Oktoberfest activities in Kitchener.

Niagara-on-the-lake

If breweries and wineries are your thing, head south to Niagara-on-the-lake during the next few weeks. Not only are there plenty of beautiful trails to walk in the area, but the views from the lake will be enough to make this trip truly breath-taking.

There are also plenty of pumpkin patches in the area if you’re interested in getting the full autumn experience.

Collingwood

If you want to have a little fun with your fall road trip, head out to Collingwood for a weekend. From beautiful golf courses to horseback riding to ziplining to mountain biking, you can be assured that there’s something for everyone when you go.

Of course, if you just went to take it easy, you’ll be happy to hear that there are plenty of relaxing spas throughout the area.

Prince Edward County

If you live further east, travelling to Prince Edward County could be a more realistic option for you. Prince Edward County offers plenty of fall celebrations and festivals from October to November, so you can be certain that something is going on during harvest season.

While the area can sometimes be a little overcrowded in the summer as Sandbank Provincial Park is nearby, the influx of tourists tends to die down in the fall, making the trip a little more relaxing and enjoyable if you’re going with your significant other.
