Travel around these charming towns located in Ontario's Southwest. We teamed up with Arienne Parzei to discover the hidden delights, culinary hot-spots, and outdoor beauty within Oxford county and Windsor/Essex. See what these small towns have to offer!
Known for its rich Aboriginal and pioneer history, agriculture, and friendly communities, Middlesex County has endless rural charm. And thanks to its productive farm lands, combined with passionate locals, it's growing into a culinary destination for food fans looking to get out of the city.
No matter where we go and when we like to travel, vacationing is all about one of two things: escapism or discovery. We are either taking a break from our every day lives and routines, or we are trying to discover a new destination and its culture. When you're looking for discovery, taking part in local hands-on experiences is the best way to immerse yourself in the local culture and really get to know the community.
