Almonte Ontario: Best Things to Do on a Weekend Getaway

Almonte Ontario: Best Things to Do on a Weekend Getaway, Almonte, Ontario (B)

Almonte Ontario is a charming town filled with history, delicious eats, interesting shops, and picturesque streets. So beautiful, in fact, that it is the backdrop to many cheesy holiday and Christmas movies. I call them cheesy in an attempt to sound cool, knowing very well that when Christmas time rolls around, I always end up wanting a few. 

The 19th Century mill town is surrounded by the Canadian Mississippi River (not to be confused with the Mississippi River in the United States) and is only 40 minutes from downtown Ottawa. This spot is a true gem and perfect for a weekend getaway or day trip if you’re nearby.

Exploring this quaint village town is a one-of-a-kind experience and sure to satisfy everyone’s travel needs.

Whether you are looking for a couples retreat, something for the whole family, or travelling solo, you can’t go wrong with Almonte. It’s the perfect weekend escape for locals and should be added to all the itineraries of travellers visiting Canada from afar.  ......
