The first time that I went to Upper Canada Village was about 15 years ago at Halloween. I am not a huge lover of “Disney-world-ish” spots….and feared that this might be one. It was NOT.  It is amazing that just one hour and 12 minutes away is all that it takes to go back in time in history hundreds of years! 

This long weekend is a special weekend indeed in Eastern Ontario.  Just head out from Ottawa this weekend and drive due south on the 416 and head towards Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg for this very special Horse Weekend that you and the entire family will enjoy.  http://www.uppercanadavillage.com/events/horse-lovers-weekend/ 

Not into horses? Then instead of turning east at the end of the 416, turn west towards Brockville and take in the Tall Ships! http://www.tallshipsbrockville.com/

Have a great long weekend!!
