Canada: Prince Edward County, Ontario

Favourite Experiences:

  • Touring Prince Edward County’s many vineyards
  • Enjoying Brunch at the Drake Devonshire Inn

In June, I spent a weekend in Ontario’s Prince Edward County for a friend’s bachelorette party. This was my first visit to ‘The County’ and I loved its quiet and laid back vibe. Our group spent the weekend touring and tasting wines from three different vineyards, partying at The Hayloft (a definite hotspot for summer bachelorette parties), and enjoying a lot of great meals together. Due to a limited amount of time, we were not able to visit The County’s famous Sandbanks Beach, but this is something I would definitely check out if I visited again during the summer months. Overall I really enjoyed this part of the province, especially the cute little village of Wellington, where we enjoyed brunch at the Drake Devonshire. If you’re a wine lover, make sure to check out the three vineyards that we visited for a tour and tasting:
