As much as we relish summertime, autumn is a great season to plan a retreat to Ontario’s cottage country. As warm temperatures and humidity start to decline, so do the number of tourists, creating an ideal situation for those hoping to avoid crowds and gatherings. The crisp autumn air wistfully pushed about by the unpredictable fall breeze sweeping through the Georgian Bay coastline lends itself to a wide range of outdoor recreational opportunities considered more comfortable in cool weather. Further adding to the intrigue of a fall getaway in Ontario, the surrounding hardwood forests will take on a new personality as they begin exhibiting a vibrant display of reds, yellows, and oranges throughout the bayside. As a result, the local landmarks and attractions will create an immersive and captivating environment that’s perfect for sightseeing, day trips, and of course, fishing!

Fall Getaways in Ontario: Explore the Georgian Bay

One of the most defining factors of going on a fall getaway in Ontario is the spectacular collection of colour gifted to us by the autumn foliage. An excellent way to enjoy this brilliant palette is by taking a canoe or kayak into the Georgian Bay. The surreal feeling of making the first ripples of the day in the crystal clear water as you paddle through the morning mist is difficult to put into words. Before or after your maiden voyage, stop by Thrive Foods Cafe & Marketplace for a cup of coffee, delectable baked goods, and a bevy of lunchtime provisions. You can also browse their selection of groceries in case you forgot anything at home!

Take a Drive Through Ontario’s Cottage Country

In autumn, the Georgian Bay area is a ruggedly gorgeous landscape characterized by sprawling woodlands and sparkling lakes and waterways. A quintessential day trip activity, leaf-peeping tours across Ontario’s cottage country is a remarkable chance to explore quaint villages, discover hidden gems, and admire the many scenic vantage points. The best part is you can simply hop in your car and choose a destination that piques your interest. For example, Owen Sound can be accessed via Highway 6 heading north. A shorter route to consider would be to drive from Honey Harbour to Midland, where you’ll go by Maceys, Sturgeon, and Hog Bay with several towns in between. The best part is, you’ll have a comfortable cabin waiting for you upon your return!
