Day 2

Rise and shine in Kingsville, Ontario, with a cup of coffee or a beermosa (lager and orange juice!) and a filling breakfast at Grove Brewing Co. 

Next up is a morning of relaxation at Estate of Health, which offers a yoga studio, tea lounge, hydrotherapy pool and meditative garden.

Once you feel like your best self, sip on award-winning wine while enjoying the serenity of the countryside at Kingsville Winery. 

Before heading east, snag an assortment of mouthwatering flavors and artistic creations at Dutch Boys Chocolate

When it comes to experiencing Lake Erie, travelers can do no better than Point Pelee National Park’s Marsh Boardwalk and Tip Exhibit — a nature lover’s paradise boasting some of the shore’s most majestic views and best bird watching and hiking.

No trip through Canada is complete without experiencing one of the region’s favorite desserts. At Crazy 8 Barn & Garden, grab a Busted Butter Tart sundae to enjoy while browsing a curated shopping corner or checking out the 1-acre garden.

Port Stanley
Known for its world-class beaches, this harbor town is where you’ll soak up some sun and hit the sand. Hungry? There’s plenty of waterfront restaurants like Mackie’s and GTs on the Beach, as well as charming boutiques. Take home a piece of Ontario at Art Emporium, a gallery showing the works of local and regional artists or venture into James Street for coastal home accents. “Pepper Tree Spice Co. is not to be missed,” advises Carman. “I highly recommend their pizza and pasta seasoning, lavender vanilla sugar and Best Bagel seasoning.”

Port Dover
Save your appetite for Port Dover’s boisterous culinary scene offering everything from casual eats to fine dining. Nestle into Norfolk County for the evening at Bonnieheath Estate, a farmhouse bed-and-breakfast set on 130 acres and boasting a vineyard. Those vacationing mid-June to mid-July will want to make time to take a stroll through the lavender field when it’s in full bloom.
