What to do in Muskoka this long weekend - October 6 - 9

Random

Thanksgiving weekend would not be complete without driving through the glorious district of Muskoka to enjoy the turning of the leaves. After an early start to the fall season, the unexpected heat wave slowed down the colour transition. With cold nights and normal fall temperatures returning, fall colours are coming and they are coming in fast! There are so many gorgeous sites, too numerous to name here but one of our all-time favourites is a drive around Lake of Bays. It’s absolutely stunning!

Whatever you and your family decide to do we wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving weekend.
