Trip Inspiration | Adult Escapes

I was attending a tourism conference in this southwest Ontario city in mid-spring and walked into a large, industrial space in the Old East Village Area of town. There was a gleaming coffee shop off to one side; the sort of place that looks like one you’d find in Toronto’s West Queen West area or Vancouver’s Gastown. Past that was a lovely, bright grocery store selling lots of local foods and organic products. 

Exploring the Grand River

One of the many aspects that draws me to fishing is that no two days on the water are ever the same.

While experience and time on the water can improve the outcome of successfully catching fish, even the best of anglers are humbled at times and there is no end to learning and improving.

Tasting the legacy of a distillery town, a Chopped Canada contestant’s take on B&B dining, local lamb burger love and a winery that’s about the people as much as the pour.

Ask the food, beer and wine producers of Windsor-Essex region how their area has earned a reputation as one of Ontario’s newest culinary destinations and the answer may surprise you.
