Forget Waterworks and Pinafore! We are so over them! Ok - we're really not. We LOVE LOVE LOVE these parks!But don't they get all the love? In that spirit, we dug a little deeper to find some UNIQUE winter activities to try in St. Thomas this year. Check out our list of the top 5, and try one, or all, to help ease those winter blues.
When you head over to the Joe Thornton Community Centre today, leave the skates at home. Did you know they have a walking track that is open 7 days/week? During the winter season outdoor jogging can be a cold hassle, so put the track to use to walk, jog or dance your way around. Check it out at 75 CASO Crossing.
Knitting is a very unique process and its been said “In the rhythm of the needles there is music for the soul”. The activity of knitting is especially popular during winter because it's an indoor activity! And who honestly enjoys the cold? Those looking to engage in knitting classes should look no further than Little Red Mitten, as they provide knitting instruction for people of all levels! Check out Little Red Mitten at 86 Talbot Street.
Did we mention yet that winter is cold? And cold weather brings a genuine need for warm beverages. Why not fulfill this need at Why Not Cookies Cafe, in particular, their house made hot chocolate? Located at 373 Talbot Street, Why Not Cookies Cafe also offers lunch, cookies (of course) and other cafe goodies.
Who says all the boutique shopping has to be downtown? The Elgin Centre has recently added new stores and boutiques to its location at 417 Wellington Street. A few of the new shops include; Sherry’s, Oasis Beads, 916 Galleria, and Everwoods. The best part? You don't even need to go outside to visit all these shops!
The Whistlestop Trail is the most versatile trail in St. Thomas because you can use it for a so many reasons and in so many ways! During this winter season, why not bundle up and walk the trail to dine at one of St. Thomas’s downtown restaurants? Right off trail you'll find The Bistro, Legends Tavern, and Rail City Bistro!
