Summer in the County: Seven Ideas When Visiting Drake by the Lake

Posted by Drake, July 18, 2016
Summer in PEC

July is meant to be enjoyed slowly.

Push your heels through sand while you get lost in a nectarous summer read, or pedal to a local vineyard to sip a crisp and refreshing rosé. From local studio art tours to a nostalgic night at the local drive-in, we're savouring every hot minute in these glorious dog days of summer.

Play hooky and join us at Drake Devonshire in Prince Edward County for a mid-week escape. Lazy days by the lake can do magnificent things to the mind and body.

Sandbanks Provincial Park

Order a Drake brown-bag picnic lunch, throw down your blanket and relax on one of Canada's most gorgeous sandy beaches.

Norman Hardie Winery

There are many notable wineries that speckle the coast, but a visit to Norman Hardie's Winery and Vineyard is a must. Enjoy some of the best cool-climate chardonnay this province has to offer while nibbling on a freshly baked pizza from the outdoor oven.

Wellington Art Studio Tour

From rustic barn studios to contemporary galleries, picturesque Wellington is a thriving community for artists. A peek into their colourful work spaces will undoubtedly spark creativity.

Bike the Taste Trail

From Vicki's Veggies to Slickers County Ice Cream, there are over twenty destinations to explore on this sumptuous taste trail. Borrow one of our bicycles and explore the finest culinary delights that The County has to offer.

County Cider Company

Wander the orchard, sip a refreshing cider with a bite, and enjoy a meal with a stupendous view.

Mustang Drive-In Movie Theatre

Pulling into Picton's Mustang Theatre for some popcorn and a screening of Ghostbusters sounds like the perfect way to spend a summer night in the country.

Jamie Kennedy Summer Dinner Series

For a positively dreamy culinary adventure, reserve a spot at the table for a five-course dinner at Chef Jamie Kennedy's family farm.

Summer in Ontario is pretty special; ditch the boardroom for a few days and join us for a pitcher of Sangria and campfire on the beach.
