It’s still pretty warm out there, so let’s extend beach season a little longer! If you’re looking for an ideal autumn getaway, look no further than the quaint town of Wellington.
Situated on the north shore of Lake Ontario in the beautiful Prince Edward County, this town has country charm with all the spoils of a city.
That includes trendy places to shop, eat, and spend the night.
Wellington is right in the heart of wine country and just a short drive from the famous Sandbanks Provincial Park.
But, the town also has a pristine beach of its own, complete with white sand and a scenic boardwalk to a lighthouse.
Between tasting award-winning wines and sipping coffee at the local cafes, you’ll also get to enjoy fine dining, visit lively pubs and bars, browse galleries and check out the fascinating heritage museum.
On a warm day, you can enjoy one of the many outdoor activities in the region, like cycling, hiking, kayaking, and fishing.
And when you’re ready to call it a night, you can retreat to The Lakeside Motel or the Drake Devonshire.

The Drake Devonshire boutique hotel has its own restaurant and private beach area, so you’ll be getting the true resort experience.
Prepare to do some damage to your bank account because there are chic boutiques and unique shops to check out in town.
Wellington is also just a short drive away from other Prince Edward County hot spots, including Bloomfield and Picton.
You’ll get a big dose of County hospitality and the serenity of Ontario’s countryside.
With so many golden autumn weekends to look forward to, now’s the time to enjoy our province’s hidden gem destinations.
