Through living and working in the Bay of Quinte region, we’ve learned a thing or two about all the things to do, see, eat and explore around here. Join us each week as we share must-do activities in the BoQ.
Yes, another COVID reminder! Keep washing those hands, physically distancing and wearing your mask while you travel around the region. For the latest updates, please visit the Hastings-Prince Edward Public Health website.
19 Timber Ridge Drive, Brighton
The only thing better than seeing your ball fly down the fairway is seeing it land on the green with the colourful backdrop of autumn leaves. Four sets of tees means you’ll find the right playing distance for everyone in your social bubble.
14953 County Road 2, Brighton
Take a bite out of fall (and 20+ varieties of apples) at Cricklewood Farm. Get lost for a while in the six-acre corn maze, pick a peck of perfect apples or stock up on the local harvest.
2061 Old Highway 2, Quinte West
Your escape into nature is just minutes from urban life. Explore open meadows and scenic woodlands on trails north of Highway 2, or pop over to the south side of the road for paths that will lead you along the Bay of Quinte.
86 River Road, Corbyville
This historic distillery-turned-brewery hugs the Moira River and doubles as a terrific spot to peep the fall foliage. Pack a sweater to dine on their massive waterfront patio while you dive into their killer comfort-food menu and excellent beers.
271 Front Street, downtown Belleville
We’re thankful for owner Kathryn Brown’s colourful selection of kitchen wares. And because we can’t resist a good snack, we highly suggest grabbing a butter tart or cookies from St. Anne’s Bakery while Kathryn has them in stock.
11 Bay Bridge Road, Belleville
We *could* tell you about the comfy beds, spacious rooms and proximity to Belleville’s Downtown District. But (we think) the best part of a staycation at the Ramada at this time of year is the view of the fall colours from your room.
