  • Fabulous shopping for a holiday head start ✔️
  • Fresh and fun farm-to-table experiences ✔️

Exploring the communities of Halton Hills, it’s easy to forget that you’re so close to Canada’s largest city. The small-town charm of communities like Georgetown, Acton and Milton, paired with the relaxed rural vibe of the surrounding area make a fall day here feel like you are hundreds of miles away from the hustle and bustle of Toronto.

Take It Outside

The Niagara Escarpment offers killer views in any season, but fall is when this ancient rocky wonder really struts its stuff. Hiking, biking and rock-climbing options abound at Conservation Halton’s seven parks. Terra Cotta Conservation Area, with its award-winning wetland, is another excellent option for a few hours of exploring.

Do Something Unexpected

The community of Norval, which was once home to famous Canadian author, Lucy Maud Montgomery, is a must-visit destination for Anne of Green Gables fans. A stunning sensory garden created in her honour is available for visitors to explore that includes a Children’s Garden of The Senses. This magical place has unique spaces designed to stimulate the senses, including sundials, water features, reading rocks, hopscotch stepping stones, balancing logs and more.

Stock The Trunk With Fall Flavours

For thousands of years, the Niagara Escarpment has been feeding the farm fields and orchards of Halton Hills an abundance of minerals that create truly sensational produce. Taste the difference for yourself in a freshly picked apple from Chudleighs, apples, corn and pumpkins from Springridge Farm or the area’s many weekly Farmer’s Markets. Guests can harvest apples and pumpkins at Andrews Scenic Acres Farm Market, along with a full crop of fun including the corn walk, wagon rides, playground, animal corral, mini straw maze and straw mountain climb!

Score One-of-a-kind Finds

Looking to get a head start on holiday shopping? Don’t let the name fool you, Toronto Premium Outlets is actually located just off Highway 401 in Halton Hills. Score amazing deals from designer brands including Aritzia, Prada, Burberry, Coach, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store, Rudsak, Ted Baker, Tory Burch and Under Armour.

If you prefer shopping at a slower pace, the unique retailers of  Downtown Georgetown, Downtown ActonDowntown Milton offer an experience that’s delightfully different than a trip to the mall.

Sip Something New

Craft beer continues to have a strong following in Halton Hills. Stop by to see what the locals love at Orange Snail Brewers and Third Moon Brewing in Milton and Furnace Room Brewery in Georgetown. Andrews’ Winery’s award-winning strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, cherry, apple and currant wines also make for fabulous fall sipping.

Settle In For A Tasty Meal

With so many markets, bakeries and cafés to choose from, narrowing options down to just one place to stop for a meal can be a challenge. That’s why we’ve crafted this Halton Hills picnic itinerary that calls out the best places in the region to pick up tasty treats as you’re out and about on your travels. After spending a few hours building your best basket, all that’s left to do is roll out the picnic blanket and enjoy an alfresco meal with a view!

If picnics aren’t your style, but you’d still like to enjoy a meal outside, browse the complete list of patios open for dining with Halton Hills Al Fresco in the Hills program.
