Jim Byers explores Ontario's Southwest.
ALONG ONTARIO’S LAKE ERIE SHORELINE - Great food. Wonderful people. Terrific wines. And great outdoor experiences.
As winter is very slowly rolling into a cool spring, the time has come when many of us look at the frosty corners on our windows with frustration and exasperation.
PORT STANLEY, ONTARIO – Call it a tale of two cities. Or maybe three.
On the one hand, Port Stanley is your quintessential southern Ontario town. There are old-time B and B’s with giant porches and carpets of stunning flowers and quaint shops selling outdoor gear and fashionable women’s shoes and a cute coffee shop.
Trade in your briefcase for a beach bag and head on down to the shores of Lake Erie and explore one of the region’s best beach towns.
