Come Wander

I’m sweet as can be, and go well with something salty. I feel most alive before anything starts to grow. Where Am I?

Refresh with a Spa Visit

With the refreshing vibes of spring popping up everywhere, it seems like the perfect time to treat ourselves to a little refresh as well — a little rejuvenation. There’s no better way to prepare for warmer days than to spoil yourself with a spa treatment at one of Lanark County’s incredible spas like Perth Parkside Inn and Spa or Mahogany Salon and Spa.

Art Festivals and Events

Ontario’s Highlands is a region that is home to many talented artists, who each year invite visitors to share in the beauty they live in: to marvel at twinkling glass in the sunlight; feel the warm curves of smooth pottery; get lost in the depths of painted lakes and forests; and to bring home a piece of artwork to adorn their homes with one small reminder of it. Celebrate creativity under the warm sun at art festivals and events like Art in the Garden and Art Works! Perth Studio Tour.
