You don’t have to go far to have fun this Civic Holiday! Enjoy your long weekend without the hassle of travel by planning a summer staycation. There are so many entertaining and relaxing things to do right here at home. Read on for some of our favourite staycation ideas!
Plan an outdoor movie night.
An outdoor movie night is a fun way to celebrate the long weekend with neighbours and friends. Project a movie onto a wall or a hanging sheet, and serve sweet treats and popcorn. For the full movie theatre experience, pick up one of the Admit One Popcorn Makers and the Admit One Popcorn Bowl Set at Stokes.
Become a tourist in your own town.
There’s something for everyone with the many museums, art galleries, historic sites and parks in Windsor-Essex. Get together with friends or family to create an itinerary for the day and enjoy the incredible tourist spots our region has to offer. With all the walking you’ll be doing, you won’t want to forget to wear some comfortable sneakers from Puma, Tootsies and Aldo!
Have a picnic at the lake.
It’s the perfect time to pack a picnic and head to Lake St. Clair or Lake Erie. Great picnic meals include wraps and salads, or you can keep it simple with a fresh baguette, assorted cheeses and fruits. Bring along a Frisbee, soccer ball, board game or favorite beach read. Make sure you visit Stokes and pick up the Wilderness 11 31-Piece Picnic Backpack and Cooler Bag.
Try a new recreational activity.
The long weekend is the perfect opportunity to try a new recreational activity you’ve been wanting to do. Rent a kayak for a day on the water, rollerblade by the riverfront or go for a hike in one of our beautiful parks. Grab your bike and spend the day on one of Windsor-Essex’s many bike trails, including the Herb Gray Parkway Trail for a stop at Windsor Crossing! Stop by Columbia for outerwear suited to the activity of your choice.
