Where to go and what to do this March Break!

It’s time for a well-earned break for the whole family to get outside and enjoy the sunshine, warmer temperatures and sweet treats around Orillia & Lake Country.

Tap Into Maple

March Break just got sweeter! Indulge your sweet tooth visiting locations that are part of this year’s Tap Into Maple! Find the route that suits your family on this self-guided tour visiting maple producers and businesses through our region.

Enjoy a pancake meal, go on a self-guided walk and pick up some treats at Shaw’s Maple Syrup, open daily.

Check with producers ahead of visiting for hours of operation and if pre-booking is required.

Pick up some maple treats to-go at Chelsea Chocolates in Craighurst or stop in to Apple Annie’s Shop & Cafe in Orillia for maple fudge and special Maple Syrup Latte.

Pick up maple products while you shop local at Hewitt’s Farm Market, open daily. On Saturdays, visit the Orillia Fairgrounds Farmers Market where maple vendors will be on hand.
