Decades had passed since our last visit to Prince Edward County, but this July we discovered an entirely new appreciation for this gorgeous region. Bordering the sandy beaches of Lake Ontario, Prince Edward County is road tripping distance from both Ottawa and the GTA. So much creative energy has flowed into this picturesque part of our province in recent years, so we knew it was time for us to visit again and make an effort to do more local travelling this summer. Here are some of our favourite moments and memories from our family trip to the County!
THE PERFECT PLACE TO STAY
We discovered Wander Resort last year when they first started their Instagram page. As soon as they opened up bookings, we jumped on the opportunity to book this incredible beachfront cabin! And it did NOT disappoint. The resort was so family friendly and our little ones formed many new friendships while frolicking on the beaches and in the lake. For the record, this wasn't a sponsored visit, we just really love seeing other entrepreneurs executing amazing concepts and design, and we definitely left feeling inspired.

THE BEST BEACHES IN ONTARIO
Of course a trip to Prince Edward County isn’t complete without a visit to Sandbanks Provincial Park and its stunning beaches! These beaches and dunes have some of the softest sand you’ll ever touch and beautiful blue waters too. Travelling here brought back so many childhood memories and hopefully created some beautiful new ones for our littles.

DID SOMEONE SAY TAKE-OUT TACOS?
We picked up take-out from La Condesa and had a great selection of delicious tacos, complete with fresh chips and guac. Perfect food for patio weather, with a quick and simple pick up process!
La Condesa is located at the heart of Wellington, PEC
