Take the road less travelled down Highway 2, often called Longwoods Road, and discover art, history, and adventure.
A visit to the Thamesville area is not complete without a stop at Parks Blueberries. Stop in and pick your own when in season, or wander through their beautiful gift shop and enjoy a tea and scone. Frozen pies and berries are available all year (when open) so you can take a piece of Chatham-Kent home with you.
In the fall, spend the day getting lost with your family in the famous iMaze, one of Ontario's largest corn mazes, pick your own pumpkin and embrace the autumn season.
As you drive along Longwoods Road, take note of the colourful artistry displayed atop many of the barns. This is just one of three Barn Quilt Trails within the municipality. These dot the countryside that make up rural Chatham-Kent and truly are a unique sight. Along the way, visit both the Battle Hill Historical Site and Tecumseh Monument and read about the events that took place there and shaped the foundation of Canada.
The journey along Longwoods Road, whether you're heading south or north of Thamesville, is full of interesting sites that you can easily spend a day or two exploring.
Annually, residents and visitors can enjoy the Thamesville Threshing Festival in June.
