Elgin County: The Perfect Fall Weekend Getaway
Lifestyle From great activities to great food, find out what you can expect to experience in a visit to Elgin County.
Sip, savour, and stroll your way through beautiful Elgin County this fall. Local culinary experiences that touch all five senses are waiting for you in this rural corner of Southwestern Ontario. Enjoy beautiful scenery and fall flavours only a short drive from the city.
Sip at the county’s two wineries. If you love locally crafted wine, no trip will be complete without a visit to Rush Creek Wines and Quai du Vin Estate Winery. You can even bring a bottle home for later!
Savour local food at the restaurants that dot Elgin’s countryside. Dining locally has never been easier thanks to Savour Elgin. Restaurants that are a part of the Savour Elgin program must purchase 25 percent of their ingredients within 100 kilometres. From fine dining to cafés, there are savoury fall flavours to be enjoyed around every corner.
Stroll through the countryside and get back to nature by going apple or pumpkin picking at one of Elgin’s farm markets. Navigate a corn maze or enjoy a wagon ride before filling a bushel with fresh, crisp apples you pick yourself.
