Five Fun Ways to Spend Your Spring Break!

Spring break from school may be a bit later this year but that means warmer temps during time off and some new things to try! Explore our green spaces by taking a nature hike or get creative with some paint-your-own-pottery kits or play in the dirt with some new plants.  There is still plenty of fun ways to explore some time off while remaining safe.  Stay local and explore our boutiques as you #shopYQG or maybe #DineYQG and pick up some take-out so that nobody has to cook (or do the dishes!).

Play in the Dirt

Get out the shovels and gardening gloves after you make a trip out to Colasanti’s Tropical Gardens to do a curbside pick up of some bright plants to celebrate spring in your home! Order from their array of cacti, succulents and other beautiful greens and while you’re there don’t forget to add some fresh made doughnuts and broaster chicken to your order to take home for dinner!

Explore Our Trails

Grab a copy of our Cycle Tourism Map and take to the trails either by two-wheels or by foot! If you haven’t explored the Windsor Sculpture Park, also known as The Gallery Without Walls, along Windsor’s Riverfront Trail this is a great time to do so! Enjoy the fresh air and take in the multitude of sculptures and art installations along the path.
