Besides, St. Jacobs has always been one of my favorite Ontario small town destinations.
I have been brave enough to stay in several hotels during this pandemic, but I can say without a doubt that the Holiday Inn Express & Suites has been the most COVID ready hotel that I have stayed at to date. Throughout my stay, I never felt unsafe, nor did I find it difficult to social distance from other guests, as the hotel has large open areas which makes it easy to avoid close contact with others.
Things To Do In St. Jacobs For The Non-Shopper
Although I highly recommend visiting St. Jacobs during St. Jacobs Sparkles, I realize that it is a busy time of the year and shopping is not for everyone. For those of you who are more of the adventurous type, there are plenty of activities and adventures in St. Jacobs other than shopping.
