- We always make sure to stop in at Purdy’s at The Bend for a fish fry or some smoked trout. Locals know it’s the place to to enjoy fresh, locally caught lakefish!
- Next stop, as is expected, is the beach. There are a number of public beaches with drive up access between Grand Bend and Bayfield along highway 21. Lake Huron has some of the most beautiful beaches in Ontario — so make sure to pack your swim suit and some snacks (like fresh seasonal fruit!).
- On Fridays, from May-October pick up that fruit at Clan Gregor Square at the Bayfield Farmers Market! You can also pick up a bottle of VQA to enjoy under your beach umbrella. We won’t tell if you won’t.
- In the afternoon, stroll the shops of Main St. in Bayfield. There are tons of little galleries and artists studios to inspire even the most apprehensive shoppers.
- Come dinner time, head out of town to Exeter where Chef James Eddington cooks up a flurry of locally sourced ingredients at his Feast ON Certified restaurant Eddingtons of Exeter. Located in a Victorian style manse, Eddington’s also boasts a lovely patio on which to enjoy house cured braised Pork Belly taco’s or housemade pastas.
- Add a little farm charm to your weekend by following The Bluewater Area Farm Tour. The Tour is a self-guided driving tour of the farm direct stores located within a 30 minute drive of Bayfield and Clinton. You’ll find apiaries & vegetable stands, fresh home baked goods & preserves, savoury meats & cheeses and so much more!
