It’s a Winter Wonderland!

Content sponsored by York Durham Headwaters

When the snow flies, the trails become a whole new world of fun and adventure!  Grab your skis, snow shoes or fat bikes and take a journey through the groomed Durham Forest.  Watch for wildlife along the path and enjoy the breath taking views.

If you packed your skates and sticks, stop in at Elgin Pond in the heart of Uxbridge to shoot some pucks or show off your figure skating twirls. Then head downtown for the best hot chocolate and lattes around at Nexus or Tin Cup Caffe.

For something a little different from the usual, treat the family to a winter horseback trail ride at Pleasure Valley. Or if the kids want to dial-up the speed, head to one of the local ski hills for some snow boarding or skiing at Ski Dagmar or snow tubing at Lakeridge Ski Resort,

By now, everyone’s tummy will be rumbling, which calls for a meal at Boston Pizza Uxbridge!

If an independent bookstore is the heart and soul of a community then Blue Heron Books speaks well for Uxbridge! With a charming historic atmosphere and an energetic vibe, there is an extensive assortment of books that welcome the entire family to root around for their next great read. Do not leave the dog outside; there is a treat for pooch in a tin under the counter.

A short walk away is The Roxy Theatre where movie buffs can relish in film nostalgia. Don’t be fooled by the restored art deco architecture, this theatre gem boasts state-of-the-art digital projection and sound. Yes, of course the butter on your popcorn is real, reminiscent of days gone by.

After a matinee movie, dinner at Wixan’s Bridge will serve up family favourites in a casual atmosphere.

Strike a hit with the kids when you top off the evening with a game of glow-in-the-dark bowling at Parish Lanes 5 Pin. Don’t forget to take lots of pictures to add to your timeline of this memory-making day together.
