Langdon Hall in Cambridge
Langdon Hall is one of our favourite romantic weekend getaways from Toronto, a short 90 minute drive from the city. In recent years the historic manor house has garnered a long list of swoon-worthy accolades, placing her in the choir with Canada’s creme de la creme.
If you’re looking for a truly spectacular service experience, indulge at Langdon Hall’s world-class spa and award winning restaurant by Chef Jason Bangerter.
There’s a magical little place in Ontario that comes alive each Fall as it hosts Canada’s most celebrated beer festival. For nine days in October, the sister cities of Kitchener Waterloo host Ontario’s Oktoberfest soiree. The beer splashed bacchanal is in honour of a happy harvest thanks to the German tradition of slurping suds, nibbling on pretzels and dancing in lederhosen to lively polka.
Kitchener Waterloo’s local craft brewery community works 365 days a year to produce some of Ontario’s most sought after beer. The majority of the regions top microbreweries are fresh on the scene and experimenting in their infancy to make local beer lovers swoon.
