For a weekend escape not too far from Toronto, head to Grand Bend. The sandy beach and mesmerizing crystal blue waters of Lake Huron will make you completely forget that the big city is only 2 hours away.
When it comes to the food, there are plenty of options down Main Street, especially for ice cream. Below are a few of the places we tried.
This pub is the closest spot to the beach and has a massive menu, so everyone will find something they like. For starters order the deep fried ravioli and the nachos.
The Dairy Dip -
After lunch and then again after dinner (yes that happened), indulge in your wildest ice cream fantasies. Soft serve, dipped cones, sundaes, and slushys - they have it all.
Even though it's off Main Street, head here for brunch. The huge homemade cinnabuns and pies are served fresh from the oven...worth the drive.
If you don't feel like you're living in another era while visiting GB, stop for a quick lunch at BEST'S and then you will. Their homemade ice cream is delicious.
