Do you love seeing historic buildings and architecture when you travel? 🤩 This is Stratford's City Hall building, built in 1900 after a fire destroyed the previous town hall. It's a National Historic Site of Canada. And there's a town square around the other side of it, where you'll find public art, picnic tables, and special events are hosted there. ➡️ Scroll thru this gallery of photos to see some more beautiful historic buildings from around Stratford! And don't forget to save this post for your upcoming Stratford trip 😉 @visitstratfordon #LoveStratford #architecturedaily #historicsite #cityhall #DiscoverON #yourstodiscover #stratfordontario #architecture_hunter #historicbuildings #historicplaces #architecturephoto #canadaisbeautiful #imagesofcanada #canadagram #ontariocanada #ontariotravel #travelawesome #travelbloggeres #travelblogger #postcardplaces #prettylittletrips #smalltownontario

Cycling, kayaking, hiking! If you love outdoor adventures, you need to visit Cornwall, Ontario! 😍 ➡️ SCROLL thru this gallery to see all of my awesome outdoor activities! Cornwall is a city in southeastern Ontario with small town charm. It's right on the St Lawrence River, so there are lots of opportunities for outdoor fun! 🚴‍♀️ Go cycling on the Waterfront Trail 🚣‍♀️ Go kayaking at Guindon Park (@boatingeryadventurestrends has transparent kayaks for rent!) 🚶‍♀️There are tons of parks and hiking trails! I loved Gray's Creek Conservation Area with 6.4km of scenic trails through the forest @raisinregion Be sure to SAVE this post so you can plan your trip to Cornwall (with the fall colours just beginning to show, it's going to be even more magical soon). @cornwalltourism @southeast.ontario #SouthEasternOntario #ExploreCornwallON #DiscoverON #cycleontario #ontariocanada #ontariooutdoors #ontarioadventures #cornwallontario #explorecanada #ontariotravel #kayaking #ontariohiking #hikeontario #kayakontario #outdooradventures #womenwhoexplore #shetravels #shewhowanders #beautifulplaces #wearetravelgirls #adventureseeker #biking #hikinggoals

Only 1.5 hours from Toronto by car, and it's like you've transported to Europe! 😍 Stratford, Ontario has got that small town charm, and it's one of those places I'll happily visit again and again. Stratford has a picturesque English atmosphere, including beautiful gardens and a historic downtown. @stratfest is back on, so you can catch a Shakespearean play (or an innovative modern take on one, like R+J, the performance we attended!). Stroll along the peaceful banks of the Avon River. Or you can do what we did - rent a paddleboat and go exploring (and make friends with the local ducks and swans!). If you can't visit Stratford-Upon-Avon, UK, I suggest heading to Stratford, ON as soon as possible! @visitstratfordon #LoveStratford #stratfordontario #Stratford #DiscoverON #ontariocanada #ontariotravel #gardensofinstagram #shakespeareangardens #gardenstagram #gardeninspiration #gardenlovers #smalltownontario #ontariotravel #visitstratford #cottagecore #thegirlgang #tlpicks #canadatravel #travelbloggeres #girlscreating #iammissadventure #bridgerton #wearetravelgirls #journeysofgirls

I am so proud of myself for riding 128km this weekend with @ontario_by_bike !! 🚲 I took part in their Niagara Ride where we cycled through Thorold, Fort Erie, Port Colborne and Welland across the weekend. It was so much fun to meet other riders - some were avid cyclists and some were first time attendees, like myself! Everyone was so friendly and supportive. Ride at your own leisure and enjoy the beautiful views along the way. Take a look at @ontario_by_bike's website to join a group ride in the future, or they also have all of their routes on their website so you can ride any one of them anytime you like! These photos are from my first day of cycling from Thorold to Fort Erie. We rode along the Welland Canal to the Niagara Parkway and right down to the Canada/USA border at Fort Erie. Do you love cycling? Have you ever done any long distance bike rides before? #OntarioByBike #DiscoverON

Sunsets in Kingston and the 1000 Islands are soooo beautiful! 😍 We sailed aboard the Island Queen with @1000islandscruises and experienced some of the prettiest sunset views ever !🌅 Hop on the boat right from the harbour in downtown Kingston. Then, you'll glide through the calm waters of the St. Lawrence River to the 1000 Islands. Witness the cute A-frame island cottages and stunning pastel skies. We even saw a rainbow! There's also informative commentary for the first portion of the cruise, which turns into live music as the night goes on. Justin and I loved this relaxing sunset sailing from Kingston! Scroll through this photo dump to see all of the pretty scenery as day turns to night. ✨ SAVE this post so you remember to add it to your upcoming Kingston travel plans! @visitkingstonca #VisitKingston

It's the Big Nickel! Don't you just love roadside attractions? Sudbury's most iconic attraction is the Big Nickel, and you need to get a photo with it! The Big Nickel is the world's largest coin and it celebrates the history of mining in the city. But, don't just visit the Big Nickel and leave. There's a great attraction called Dynamic Earth on site, too. Travel down into the mine for a tour and learn all about the history of mining in the area. It's fascinating to wander through the cavern and learn about mining from the turn-of-the-century compared to the modern day. Plus, you get to wear a hard hat on the tour. Swipe ➡️ to see my hard hat selfie! 👷‍♀️ Have you ever visited the Big Nickel? What's your fav roadside attraction? @sudburytourism @sciencenorth #DiscoverSudbury

We're loving #MySaugaSummer - our summer in Mississauga! 🙌 There is SO much to see and do here all summer long! [AD] We've lived in Mississauga for over 8 years and we're still discovering new things to do in the city! Justin and I had a blast on our staycation. We visited: ➡️ Riverwood Conservancy, a beautiful public garden with hiking trails (free to visit!) @yourriverwood ➡️ The village of Streetsville with so many cool shops, restaurants and cafes @streetsvillebia ➡️ Celebration Square where there are events all summer long! The #MiCasaYourCasa interactive installation is there right now @mcsevents ➡️ SO many delicious restaurants!

Brantford's vegan scene is amazing! SAVE this vegan guide for Brantford! 🌱 ➡️ @lettucelive_ is mostly vegan and they're currently operating as a ghost kitchen with a full restaurant opening later this year! Try their smoothie bowls, the Mexi bowl, toasties and iced tea. ➡️ The @healthyrabbit is vegan-friendly with loads of great options! Bowls, nachos, smoothies, burritos, they've got it (plus their patio is awesome) ➡️ Craving comfort food? Head to the @sociabletavern for the best vegan chik'n burgers! Try the hot Nashville spicy chicken burger. We paired them with Caesar salads and truffle parm fries! ➡️ Breakfast and brunch? @bistro.seven.eatery has all day vegan breakfast! You've gotta try the breakfast bowl and the French toast. YUM. ➡️ Dessert? @daireedelite always has a vegan ice cream on the menu. This time it was vanilla, so I got them to mix up a Flurrie with Oreos for me! ➡️ And a bonus addition to this guide, @mannsdistillery is Brantford's newest craft distillery where you can try tastings of gin and vodka or sample their innovative cocktails! @tourismbrantford

We bought a house!!! 🥳🎉🏠 Justin and I have dreamed of owning our own house for a long time now, and we are so excited that it's become a reality! We are moving to Georgetown, a cute town not too far from where we live now. We'll miss living in Port Credit, but so excited for a new chapter of our lives! ❤ A huge shoutout to our real estate agent, @justin.sawicki , who has helped us so much! If you're looking to buy a house in the GTA/Burlington/Hamilton/Southern Ontario, he is the absolute best!! For those wondering about the future of this travel account, OF COURSE we're going to keep traveling! I've always been a part-time traveler based in the Toronto area, so nothing will change in that regard! 💖 I'll keep bringing you the same travel/vegan/hiking/outdoors/IG stories of our cats as I always have 😅

A lazy river in nature 😍 And you can find it in Brantford! Drift down the beautiful Grand River on a turbo tubing trip with @grandriverrafting ! It's so peaceful to float down the river. You can paddle a bit or simply let the river take you. We saw a Blue Heron and a family of ducks, too! Justin and I had a wonderful time. This is truly a bucket list experience in Ontario. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have about planning your trip! @tourismbrantford #DiscoverBrantford
