If you love the Great Outdoors, you’re sure to enjoy Halton Hills, which boasts 4 conservation areas and a seemingly endless string of parks, nature trails (including the epic, picturesque Bruce Trail), public gardens, and scenic views (an inevitability when you have the Niagara Escarpment running diagonally through your core). The city is also home to a pair of skate parks, two leash-free dog parks, 25 baseball fields, 4 tennis courts, 5 golf courses, and 20-plus soccer/rugby fields. Numerous ice pads are dotted throughout the city as well, especially in the Georgetown area, one of the first Canadian communities to implement organized youth hockey leagues (hence, the “Home of the Little NHL” moniker). If living a healthy, active life is a top priority of yours, you’ve come to the right place.
Other popular attractions for locals and tourists alike include a flourishing visual arts centre, a couple Farmers’ Markets, one of the region’s most expansive (and least expensive) outlet malls, and several heritage sites and museums. The charming downtown Georgetown and Acton areas, meanwhile, are the places to be if you’re in the mood for wining, dining, gallery-hopping, or good old-fashioned people watching.
