Staying home, safe, and social distanced means that you aren’t traveling during the colder months. 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. Locals often overlook the amazing experiences within their own backyards because they aren’t in the “tourist mindset”.

Entertaining this holiday season will look a lot different than in previous years. However, that doesn’t mean your evenings needs to be any less delicious. Plan a cocktail hour in your own home with your significant other and put together your own charcuterie board to go with your favourite drinks.
Dinner parties don’t need to be completely off the table in the time of people distancing. Thanks to all the video chat options out there, you can get creative and still hold a virtual gathering for a meal together.
While it’s an exciting prospect that so much in the region is opening back up, it still might feel a little nerve-wracking to get out of the house and “travel” again. Taking a nearby trip in Ontario's Southwest feels a little more comforting when you know you have some of the conveniences of home with you.
