It’s almost time to throw on our sweaters and wander under canopies of red, orange, and gold. You may associate Blue Mountain Village with winter or summer activities, but we’re here to tell you that autumn might be the prettiest time of year to visit.

The cobblestone-filled streets and turn-of-the-century architecture add to the charm as the surrounding hills burst with autumn colours.

This destination has tons of shops and restaurants to check out, as well as year-round activities and outdoor attractions of all kinds.

For example, the annual Apple Harvest Festival takes place in the village on Thanksgiving weekend, and a special dogs-only festival the weekend after.

There’s even an Apple Pie Trail for you to indulge in the delicious flavours of fall.

You can enjoy the picturesque fall leaves by taking one of the many hiking trails and biking paths in the area.

Or, you could see the sights and get your thrills at the same time on the Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster!
