The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

School's Out (soon)

Ahh, the beginning of summer.  I can still remember the eager anticipation of long summer days when I was a kid.  At the end of June, September was a world away.  Most of us don't have the luxury of the whole summer off, but I still think that our school day habits are ingrained and those months are a little more relaxing.
So even if you don't have tons of time off this summer, think about taking advantage of some day trips and shorter jaunts to Ontario destinations.  One of my favourite sites is Travel and Recreation Ontario

You can find Events, Parks and Outdoor Activities.  Think about a jaunt to a beach outside of Toronto for the day.  We enjoyed Cobourg, which is also accessible by train, and has a great ice cream spot near the beach.  And of course, Wasaga and Sauble are our own version of Caribbean sands.
Another site is Ontario Travel which features a downloadable summer magazine with 250 ideas, including lots of great Ontario Beaches.
So enjoy this longest day of the year, and get out and appreciate this amazing province.
