Ontario’s Lake Country I have fallen in love with you. This past Autumn I was invited to Orillia by the Economic Development Corporation to speak about storytelling through digital media and how business can stand out from the crowd and attract new customers through these stories. When the dates were confirmed I was asked if I’d like to spend a few extra days in town to explore its fall flavours. How could I say no? Of course, I wrote about those adventures but instead of publishing them here they were published in the Ontario’s Lake Country blog and I’ve decided to share them with you here because as I started off saying, I have fallen in love with Ontario’s Lake Country.

Fall Adventures – The first story covered the variety of activities one could do in the Fall and included some of the following adventures.

  • Cycling the waterfront and 70+ km of bike trails throughout the region.
  • Kayaking one of the 12 paddle routes that connect rivers and lakes within the area. It is Ontario’s Lake Country after all.
  • Segway wilderness trail rides. This isn’t cruising around the neighbourhood, this is off road and in the forest. Some great vistas and look out points along the way.
  • Treetop Trekking and ziplining your way through a forest.
  • Flight Seeing over the many lakes and cottages

The other stories focused on the culinary adventures to be found. Great coffee shops, a sweet treat tour and of course a where to eat summary.

There is lots to explore in Ontario’s Lake Country and best of all it is only an hour from Toronto. I’m planning to head back this year. Now I just need to decide if I’ll head up for Maple Syrup season or wait until the Spring. Hmmm, maybe I should do both.

See you there.
