TIME TO TEE OFF
Our first stop was Park Play Micro Golf. The course consists of nine holes to test your putting skills on. From banking off of a Converse shoe planter to Humpty Dumpty judging your swing, it’s a great time for everyone and all ages. At only $7 a round per person, it’s a fantastic way to spend half an hour.
WORKIN’ UP AN APPETITE
Next, we were feeling a bit peckish, so we stopped by Royal Haveli, a popular Belleville restaurant. Royal Haveli is spending its third year as a staple at the Pop-ups, serving up authentic Indian cuisine. I grabbed the Samosas because they are unbeatable, and the Chana Masala with rice, while Chris picked up the Chicken Seekh Kabab Kathi Roll. Both were flavourful, fresh, and filling.
After our delicious lunches, our sweet tooth took the wheel. Sugar Cravings is filled with sweets and treats that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Their homemade strawberry sauce is made from scratch every morning , and they offer many other desserts including funnel cakes, deep fried brownies and ice cream, which are only a portion of their entire menu! Paired with a Blue Raspberry Lemonade from Lemons, we were living our 90s childhood all over again.

THE ADVENTURE DOESN’T STOP THERE
Our final stop, Venture Outfitters, has all your outdoor gear essentials. Whether you want to try your hand (or legs) at Stand Up Paddleboarding or kayaking out on the Bay, Venture Outfitters has it covered with very reasonable rentals (between $20-30 for the first hour), or if you’re looking to buy your own they even sell some! Their knowledgeable and helpful staff are willing to answer any questions you may have.
Pop-ups on the Bay is the best place to spend a day and Belleville is fortunate to have such a wonderful summer hot spot.
