A visit to St. Marys invites you to look up. The Grand Trunk Trail features views from the high railway bridge across the Thames River supported by massive stone pillars. No trains now, but the view will take your breath away. The trail is 3.2km in length with paved and gravel areas.
#DYK Baseball had its beginnings in this area? The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is newly renovated and celebrates new inductees annually. Don’t miss the view overlooking the green sport fields below.
Another high point is the St. Marys Museum perched on the hill in Cadzow Park. Check out the woodworking shop, farm implements used by the settlers and early methods of transportation, a direct contrast to our almost autonomous cars.
Need a bite? Stop for lunch overlooking the Thames River, at the St. Marys Golf and Country Club. If golfing is your game, this course will reward you with challenging holes and stunning fall riverside views on your afternoon round.
If you love local foods, a stop at McCully’s Hill Farm will spark joy. Smell the fresh apple pie and butter tarts just out of the oven. Pick up locally-made jams and chutneys, perfect for perking up meals at home. If you’re playing golf, be sure to stop in before your game.
Hit the road with your crew and make this road trip yours!
