Summer staycation ideas in Ontario: Check out Elora!

Right in my backyard, Elora is an amazing tourist destination for a reason!

Enjoy Elora two ways

The First Way: with the kids

Is your family a little adventurous? Plan a tubing trip on the Grand River. You can book tickets up to 3 days in advance so you don't have to think too far ahead! Equipment rentals are also available. Thinking of something a little easier? Check out the quarry for a fun swimming spot. Get your tickets ahead of time to secure your time slot.  

Once you're good and tired, head into town and grab a scoop! Scoop ice cream offers small-batch, high quality ice cream, gelato and sorbetto. They've got vegan and dairy free options too!

Looking to do a little shopping? Elora is packed FULL of amazing shops! Be sure to stop in and see our friends over at ReFIND Salvage for fun antiques and unique finds.

The Second Way: with the girls 

If you're looking for the ultimate in pampering and self-care with your best friends - splurge on a spa day at the Mill! If you have a lot of time or a little, they have a treatment for you.

Once you're good and relaxed, be sure to enjoy a lunch overlooking the Gorge. You can't beat the views from the Elora Mill restaurant!

The Mill is in the perfect spot to walk around and enjoy the town once you're done. Check out all the amazing small shops and be sure to pop in to ReFIND Salvage to for some truly unique gems. 

Pack your bags, coordinate your calendars, and head out to Elora this summer!
