Did you guys know Stephen King’s IT film was actually filmed in downtown Port Hope? Bet you guys didn’t know that!

We did exactly that and made our way through 6 of the notable locations (during the day of course haha). The map shows you screenshots of the film so it can help you remember exactly which scenes you’re standing in.Lunch at Queenies Bake Shop

Believe it or not, this was my first time visiting a lavender field and my god, was it absolutely beautiful. I’ve recently been obsessed with anything plant and flower related so visiting the Laveanne Lavender Fields really put a smile to my face! The lavenders...

There is horseback riding in Port Hope? Yes, indeed! I was surprised too when I was told that there is horseback riding available in Port Hope and we were so glad we did. Trickle Creek Farm provides horse back trail riding and is so relaxing and so calm.
Just imagine you drive about 1.5 hours out of the busy downtown Toronto area and you are in a peaceful Ganaraska Forest, seeing animals, plants, trees, flowers, slowly riding a horse and just enjoy the nature.
If you have never...
