Experience Summer

 

You deserve a summer break. Why don't you check our calendar for a fun event and book a lakeside cottage that week? You can spend a few days paddling or hiking to clear your head.  Once you're refreshed, try a new golf course or get the adrenalin pumping with whitewater rafting. All that fresh air will make you sleep like a baby!

Summer in Hastings County is a time for relaxing by the lake, enjoying good food and great company. Our small-town charm, fairs, festivals, vintage finds, and outdoor adventures make for a summer sure to be filled with lasting memories. Here, hikers, paddlers, cyclists, and nature enthusiasts can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities in our serene, lush, forested surroundings, as well as on our sparkling lakes and rivers.

 

Our trails offer fantastic opportunities for exploration, whether by ATV, bike or by foot. When in need of a rest from all the outdoor activities stop through one of our charming towns for a cold drink, a bite to eat or of course to grab some delicious ice cream. Additionally, this is the season of fresh produce and local markets, where you can savour the flavours of the region while taking in the summer sun.

 

We even have the rainy days covered with our heritage museums, live theatre and art galleries. There is always plenty to experience this Summer here in Hastings County.
