6 Sensational Things To Do This Autumn in Oakville
If you’re going to be in or near Oakville this autumn, there’s no shortage of pleasures to be had. Not just a bedroom community for Toronto, Oakville has got its own unique history, culture and charm. If you’re flying in from out of town into Pearson Airport, AirFlight Services would be pleased to provide limo or taxi service into Oakville. While you’re there, consider enjoying any of the following delights.
Ghost walks with Oakville Historical Society
This October, in the weeks leading up to Halloween, Oakville Historical Society is providing ghost walks through the oldest parts of town. Suited for both children and adults alike, you’ll hear about resident ghosts and haunted happenings while soaking up a bit of history at the same time.
Saturday Farmers’ Market
Enjoy the abundance of the fall harvest Saturdays at the Oakville Farmers’ Market. Fresh Ontario produce, vibrant flowers and locally made baked goods are on offer. Available till the end of October.
If hitting the greens is your cup of tea, then Oakville will keep you in good form. There are a number of highly rated courses right in town and more if you’re willing to go further afoot (Halton, Burlington, Milton, etc.). If the weather’s inclement but you’re still itching to hold a club in your hands, consider visiting one of the town’s indoor driving ranges or taking in a round of mini-golf to practice your putting. In addition, you may also enjoy a tour of the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum.
Fall is the best time of year to explore Oakville by bike and the town is indeed a cycler’s playground. Oakville offers over 150 kilometres of trails, both on and off road. Among these is Waterfront Trail, crossing meadows, gardens and wooded areas. Bring your own bike or rent one in town.
Oakville is home to several breweries serving up craft beer, live entertainment, hearty lunches and decadent dinners. Cameron’s Brewing Company, Trafalgar Brewing and Distilling, and The 3 Brewers each have their own selection of ales and other libations. Visit one or visit them all.
Bronte Creek Provincial Park
This park provides 6.4 kilometres of natural beauty to explore. Hiking trails, a disc golf course, and a children’s farm are some of the park’s offerings. Later on in the fall, and into the winter months, Bronte Creek supplies cross-country skiing trails, tobogganing hills and an ice skating rink.
