Trip Summary

Today's outing allows you to enjoy the fall colours and the countryside north of Toronto in York Region & Dufferin County.

We will start off with lunch at a lovely little restaurant in Newmarket that's famous for its home made tarts. Yes, you'll get to try one of these tarts as part of your lunch. :-)

This will be followed by a one hour train ride on an original steam train to see the fall colours.

After our train ride I'm sure we'll all be thirsty so we will get to quench our thirst at an estate cidery that makes some amazing apple cider. We will get a tour of the cidery followed by a tasting of 4 of their ciders! The cidery is famous for it's home made breads and baked goods and you will be able to purchase some after the tour.

And we will finish our day with a visit to Mars. Well, OK, not actually the planet Mars, but to the Cheltenham Badlands, where erosion has created an area that closely resembles the surface of Mars!
