Trip Inspiration | Day Trips

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. 

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.

Lapped up the smooth spirits of Wolfhead Distillery and hungry for more?

The spirits are just one set of delectable items that will tickle your taste buds at the distillery; there’s a fabulous restaurant and patio too!

Flowing rivers, stunning shorelines, and city skylines are just some of the sites to see from Southwest Ontario’s best patios.

The delicious food is just the start; these restaurants have some of the most beautiful views in all of Ontario.
