Just trying to be positive here… Our Spring weather isn’t giving us much hope for summer, but it is time to start thinking about what to do when those warm summer days finally arrive.
I think there is nothing better to do than spend as much time as possible outdoors once the weather gets nice. It doesn’t need to be steaming hot, just pleasant. My favourite summer pastime is golf, and we are lucky enough to be surrounded by more courses than we could play in a summer. (I do have a job you know, for those that think they could get to them all).
If you are planning family outings, keep in mind all the local attractions, such as Wild Water Works, African Lion Safari, Christie and Valens Conservation areas, and more, that I don’t have room to name.
Now is also the time to be planning summer getaways, whether it’s the kids to camp, or the family off to the cottage. Don’t miss out by waiting to see what the weather is going to do… There are lots of things to do regardless of the temperature or precipitation.
Other summer pastimes for me include trips to Stratford and to the Shaw Festival. I enjoy turning them into day trips so we can sample what the areas have to offer, in addition to some fine entertainment.
I also enjoy going with friends on the wine tours in Niagara. Yes, pick the one who will be the DD that day, and go enjoy some of the fine wines Ontario has become so well known for. Drop in to one of the winery restaurants and enjoy local cuisine prepared by some of the best chefs around.
Looking for something more local? Spend a day walking through our abundant conservation areas, and then stop in to one of our local restaurants. Enjoy your beverage of choice on the patio…
Relax… Refresh. That’s what summer is all about.
If you have any favourite things to do, please share. We are always looking for great ideas to enjoy summer.
