• 7 Ways to Best Experience Autumn in Ontario

    Let’s just state the obvious — Autumn in Ontario is BEAUTIFUL. Although we end up saying “farewell” to the hot, sunny beach days of Summer, the colourful changes in the leaves, sweet smells of apple and cinnamon, and delicious tastes of pumpkin-everything make the adjustment to cooler temps a little more bearable (in my humble opinion, anyway).
