Start off your first day in Oakville, exploring Downtown Oakville, Bronte Village and Kerr Village. You’ll find a great collection of shops as well as great bakeries and cafes for your morning coffee break.
If you’re on the hunt for amazing designer deals, be sure to visit the brand new Toronto Premium Outlets in Halton Hills. You’ll find 85 designer and name brand outlets, some for the first time in Canada, offering savings of 25% to 65% every day!
Base your next stop on the items on your shopping list. If you’re in search of great finds for your home, a stop at IKEA is always in order. Hamilton’s Ottawa Street shopping district is another great choice, especially if you’re looking for fabrics for home décor or a one-of-a-kind antique. If you’re looking for a unique piece of art, consider Hamilton’s James Street district.
If it’s the call of the mall you hear, there are several great choices in the region, including Toronto Premium Outlets, Oakville Place, Lime Ridge Mall and Eastgate Square in Hamilton, Mapleview Centre in Burlington and Lynden Park Mall in Brantford.
If you love to shop for kitchen goodies and gourmet ingredients, make your way to Downtown Dundas.
If you’re on the hunt for outdoor gear, Burlington’s Mountain Equipment Co-op is always a great choice, but there are also smaller sporting goods shops in historic Ancaster and Dundas offering a more intimate shopping experience. Retail therapy can be tiring, so rest up at one of the great area hotels.
Set aside some time on day two for strolling the streets of Paris. Affectionately referred to as “the prettiest town in Canada,” Paris has over 80 shops and services, including some great vintage stores for scoring one-of-a-kind finds.
