    Set Out On A Romantic Road Trip

    If dinner out always seems to end far too quickly, stretch out your date into an afternoon and evening road trip. Catch up over coffee in the car as you make your way to your destination, enjoy a little touring about once you arrive and a long leisurely dinner before you head home. Choose from these four perfectly planned itineraries for fall road trips to swell small towns.

    Enjoy A Picturesque Pedal And Paddle

    Planning an afternoon of paddling and cycling may seem like an awful lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be. Grand Experiences’ five-hour tour provides an experienced guide to lead the way and all the equipment you’ll need, including hybrid touring bikes and helmets, canoe or kayak, paddles and life jackets.

    Explore The Streets of Paris Like A Local

    While a trip to France may not be in the cards this fall, there’s no reason you can’t still enjoy an afternoon in Paris. Tasty Road Trips’ Explore Paris Like A Local tour is a self-guided walking and tasting experience that takes you to the must-taste locations in Paris (Ontario) as well as an art gallery and scenic nature trails.

    Curate An Art-Filled Afternoon

Fall exhibitions at The Art Gallery of Hamilton include the works of Montreal-based artist Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Tom Thomson? The Art of Authentication, Poppa Wilson, and Maud Lewis.
