The best part about supporting local is getting to know the people behind the businesses that make it all happen. This knowledge allows you to properly appreciate everything that goes into running the restaurants, bakeries, distilleries, breweries, and experiences that you love.

To help you get to know the new gems across Ontario’s Southwest, we interviewed 5 tourism businesses that either opened, or were in the process of opening a new component, right before the pandemic hit.

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”.

If you’re lucky enough to own a convertible, you already know how much fun it is to drive the scenic Southwest roads in the fall. But, if you aren’t a convertible owner, don’t sweat it! We’ve created three must-drive routes to convince your friend with a convertible to road trip with you this fall. Don’t forget to call ahead and make sure that the locations listed are open on the day that you want to visit.
