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.
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.
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.
