If you’re looking for an exciting fall adventure that offers a mix of natural beauty and historical facts, you’ve come to the right place. Ancaster Ontario is next on our list, a place with deep roots that date back centuries, and is home to a very popular waterfall. Here’s what to know.
Located within the Golden Horseshoe area, about an hour and a half away from Toronto is Ancaster.
According to Tourism Hamilton, this town dates back to 1793 and is considered one of the oldest towns in Ontario and once the largest industrial centre in all of Canada.
“Its wealth is still visible today with gorgeous historical architecture and a small, but dynamic, downtown,” shares the site.
You can explore all the local gems in the area including shops, restaurants, historic buildings, and more.

To make it easier on you, why not embark on a Heritage Walking Tour?
This experience is only available for the rest of October but is worth the trip. You’ll explore all the historic churches, stores, and homes that date back to the 1800s.
Now if you’re looking for natural beauties, check out Tiffany Falls. Its conservation area is considered a “significant natural area” for its bedrock exposures, which are an Earth Science Area of Regional Significance.
Its forested trail will lead you to the majestic 21-metre cascade of Tiffany Falls.
If all that exploration got you hungry, get more bang for your buck at Ancaster Mills. Here you can enjoy a delicious meal with a perfect view of its two cascading waterfalls, set against a backdrop of lush green forest, bridges, and stone buildings. Lunch, dinner, or Sunday Brunch, this sophisticated spot is a must.
Now get your plans in order and head to Ancaster this weekend – you don’t want to miss out.
