The Blue Mountains / Collingwood

Apples, apples, apples!  This is apple country with the sweetest and crunchiest harvest ever in The Blue Mountains and Meaford.  Did you know that 23% of Ontario’s apples are grown here?  Pies, cider, wine, preserves and numerous other goodies are here to tempt your tastebuds.  The award-winning Apple Pie Trail features vendors with apple-themed treats and goods, with fun apple adventures to explore and experience.  A visit here isn’t complete without stopping in at Blue Mountain Village for festivals, activities and attractions.  Tis the season of The Blue Mountains Apple Harvest Festival, the Scarecrow Invasion and Family Festival in nearby Meaford and a visit to the Farmer’s Pantry and other orchards to pick your own apples.  Be sure to visit the Collingwood Downtown Farmers’ Market, too, for all that’s fall fresh and delicious. 
This area is rich in outdoor activities, too – cycle the waterfront trails, hike the Bruce Trail at the top of the Niagara Escarpment, discover “Fat Man’s Misery” at Scenic Caves and paddle Georgian Bay and the Beaver River.  Craft breweries, wineries and cideries are thriving here – book a tour with the Beer Bus and Ace Transportation Group to sip and sample.  De-stress at peaceful Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain and book an overnight stay at one of the many choices of accommodation for a true “get-away-from-it-all” vacay.  And, be sure to return during the snowy months when the ski hills are open and there’s a whole lot more activities to enjoy!
