Another summer is on its way out. The season may seem short-lived, but you still have the Labour Day long weekend left to make the most of it. Living in Guelph means that most of the activities people travel to for summer fun are already within easy reach. Here are some suggestions for a Labour Day staycation in Guelph.

 

A natural cycle

As the end of summer gives way to the beginning of fall, bike along a nature trail to take in the beauty of the changing of the seasons. The Speed River/Royal Recreation Trail is only a few minutes from Sienna Apartments (8 Speedvale Avenue West, Guelph). You can follow the trail all the way to the Guelph Lake Conservation Area, where a whole world of summer fun awaits you.

 

Swimming

Nothing says summer like a day at the beach. There are two sandy swimming beaches at Guelph Lake: the Main Beach and Island Beach. You can ride a bike to the beach from Inverness Apartments (29 Inverness Drive) in about 15 minutes. The water quality is tested weekly all summer long.

 

Picnic

It’s the simple pleasures that can make summer so enjoyable. Simply pack a few sandwiches, and some cold drinks, and head off to a nearby park for a picnic. Silvercreek Park is across the street from Pioneer Apartments, Park Towers and Terrace Towers.

 

Float your boat

You still have time to get out on the water this summer. Guelph Lake (a 7 minute drive from Maplewood Apartments) is a great spot for sailing, canoeing or kayaking. It’s peaceful because it’s a no-motor lake. Don’t have a boat? Don’t worry. Kayaks can be rented until Labour Day!
You can’t make summer last forever, but you can pack as much fun as possible into the Labour Day long weekend. For more information on Williams and McDaniel rental properties in Guelph, please click here.

A camping trip is the perfect way to make summer feel like summer. Take some time to sit back and enjoy the scenery, the campfires, and the coziness of your tent. When you live in Guelph, you’re never too far away from some of the best (and most convenient) camping in the province. The Williams and McDaniel blog team has made it even easier for you to set up camp, with this list of campgrounds near your Williams and McDaniel rental property in Guelph.

 

Guelph Lake Conservation Area

Guelph Lake Park (7743 Conservation Road, Guelph) has 108 serviced campsites, complete with electricity and water. There are also 192 unserviced sites — if you like to rough it. Depending on your preference, choose from riverfront or forest. You’ll also have access to the park’s two beaches, which are great spots for fishing, kayaking, canoeing and sailing. Who knew all this was less than a 10 minute drive from Inverness Apartments (29 Inverness Drive, Guelph)! To reserve your campsite, click here.

Rockwood Conservation Area

The giant limestone cliff that towers over the lake makes the picturesque Rockwood Conservation Area a popular site for photographers and film crews. Hike the trails, rent a canoe, swim, or just quietly admire the scenery. Camp season is in full swing right now, until October 16th. The park is also open for day use and is only a 15 minute drive from Park Towers (131 Raymond Street).

 

Toronto West KOA

The Toronto West KOA Campground (9301 Second Line RR #1 Nassagaweya Campbellville) is less than a half hour drive from Kortright Apartments (79 -83 Conroy Crescent, Guelph). If you prefer the idea of “glamping” (glamour camping) they offer fully equipped deluxe camp cabins — complete with A/C, full kitchen and bathroom, linens and more. There are also more rustic cabins and a variety of RV and tent sites.

 

West Montrose Family Camp

West Montrose Family Camp is a quaint and quiet, full service family campground. Enjoy the hiking trails, the pool, water and electric hook-ups, hot showers and flush toilets. There’s plenty of on site recreation, and you’re only minutes away from a farmers market, Walmart, Elora Grand River Casino and more. It’s less than a twenty minute drive from Willow Terrace (169 Willow Road, Guelph).
Don’t let summer pass you by without rolling out a sleeping bag, waking up in a tent and cooking breakfast over the fire. For more information on Williams and McDaniel Rental Properties in Guelph, please visit our website.
