Locals often overlook the amazing experiences within their own backyards because they aren’t in the “tourist mindset”. If being home at this time of the year is new to you, or even if it isn’t new, challenge yourself to be as open to new experiences as you’d be on vacation. Many people that have lived in Ontario their entire lives haven’t taken full advantage of the maple syrup season. Which is a shame because maple syrup is an iconic internationally recognized symbol for Canada. So, don’t let another year pass you by without experiencing maple season in Ontario’s Southwest.
