Oh the end of summer, such a bittersweet time in most of our lives. If you’re like us you’re trying to make the absolute most of the unofficial last weekend of summer. Here’s our must-do bucket list for the Bay of Quinte.
Get outside and enjoy the sunshine! Take a walk through the woods at one of the many conservation areas throughout the Quinte area. Vanderwater is one of our favourites! With over 15kms of trails there are tons of options for hiking- you can go as long or as short as you want. Nestled against the Moira River this is also a great spot to cool off or just enjoy the picturesque views.
Meyers Pier Patio
With summer withering to an end, so do some of our favourite patio hangouts! Meyers Pier will be closing down for the season, and their last day is Monday, September 3rd from 11am-11pm. They will be having live entertainment all weekend, with the Remedy on Friday, Crimson Cay on Saturday, and Eric Barager on Sunday. Make sure to go on out, and soak up the last bit of patio bliss this weekend!
Nothing says summer more than a local fair. The classic Quinte Exhibition Fair will be held this weekend on Aug 30- Sept 1st located at 240 Bridge St. West. Come for talent shows, rides, derbies and vendors. Send off the summer in a great way with your family! As usual, there are endless activities for you and your family to enjoy.
West Lake Watersports
Bouncing round a waterpark in the beautiful beaches of Prince Edward County sounds like a perfect way to say farewell to summer. West Lake Watersports will be open this September long weekend. It over-looks the West Lake dunes, and can host your entire family and friends. They have many fun filled activities, such as stand up paddle boarding, Ontario’s first giant inflatable water park, jet ski rental, boat rentals and so much more!
- Ice Cream
You scream… I Scream… Soon it will be fall & winter and cold and no fun at all. Get a cone while you still want to. Reid’s Dairy can always be trusted for a mouthful of dairy goodness... 67 years of business doesn’t lie. Try the sought after twisty cone!
Bay of Quinte
Fishing is something everyone should do at least once a summer- especially if you live near the Bay of Quinte. The shores of the Bay of Quinte host the most diverse fishing species in the area. From largemouth and smallmouth bass, to pike, pickerel, sunfish, rock bass and even bowfin. The BOQ has plenty of options for successful shore fishing. Get your worms and your bobbers ready and head to any shoreline.
