Explore local, shop local
With so many stunning natural areas to snowshoe, ski, and snowmobile, delicious eateries to order from, and quaint local shops to visit, there’s really nothing better than spending winter in cottage country. Even as locals familiar with all of the backroads and off-the-beaten-path stops, there’s always something new to try or explore. When you’re fortunate enough to call Muskoka home, there’s no shortage of fun to be had in your own backyard.
This winter, Explorers’ Edge wants to help you take your local adventures and exploration even further. That’s why they’re offering permanent and seasonal residents in the region a Cottage Country Spirit Package to make it even easier to shop and explore locally. Heads up though, it’s first come first serve and they will go quickly!
