Make Caledon your personal country retreat, complete with charming villages with fireside cafés and creative cuisine, one-of-a-kind shops, an award-winning cidery, and fine art studios galore.
Make good on your perpetual New Year's resolution to conquer the active outdoors. Enjoy one of several link-style courses that draw serious players from far and wide. Learn why Caledon is considered Ontario's horse country by cheering on Olympic hopefuls and PanAm competitors at Caledon Equestrian Park, or embark on a guided trail ride from one of the region's many stables. Hikers delight in the variety of scenery, from the rocky crests of the Bruce Trail accessible in nearby Alton, to the strange and wonderful Cheltenham Badlands to the historic riverside hiking in Forks of the Credit Provincial Park*. Cyclists can also challenge their legs on the hills, or cruise the level rail-to-trail Cataract Trailway. Winter brings a blue-and-white palate to the land, and outdoorsy types ski and snowshoe their days away.
Whenever you feel that pull to break from the everyday routine, head for the Hills.

You won't believe what you can find in this tiny village. There's one of the province's best community art centres (and in a beautiful renovated mill) where you can watch artists at work in their studios. There's a great café and bakery, access to the Bruce Trail, and, of course, the renowned Millcroft Inn & Spa.
What better way to spend the afternoon than exploring the perfectly tranquil paths of Mono Cliffs Provincial Park? Then head over to Mono Cliffs Inn to warm up with a lamb dinner or cool down with a drink on the patio.
Stroll along Erin's main street to take in the gourmet food shop and cooking school, fantastic women's shopping, and charming tea room.
Regularly voted one of the most appealing villages in an area known for its lovely communities, Belfountain is a must-visit when you're in the area. Pristine streets of country homes, cafés, and shopping await.
Arts, theatre, a site-seeing train ride, and a surprisingly diverse food scene (fancy a Caribbean roti anyone?) lure visitors to Orangeville. Don't leave town without a trip to Wicked Shortbreads – they are guaranteed to be eaten before you finish your road trip.
