Blenheim and Area

Blenheim is known for its beautiful town square and Talbot Trail Place, featuring a picnic shelter, concert series and a splash pad to cool off in when sun beats down. The charming downtown is full of boutique shops like Sixty One and Mindful Market and Eco Hub. You can stop at Charlie's Café for a delicious drink or dine at one of the many restaurants followed by dessert at Frostbites. History buffs will love visiting the Historical Society of Blenheim & District Heritage House for stories of local military heroes.  

Every June, auto enthusiasts enjoy the Blenheim Classics Car Show while you can bring the family to celebrate Cherry Fest and Sidewalk Days every July. In the winter, the Blenheim Golden Acres Curling Club hosts a four sheet curling club which some say is "the best ice you'll ever find!"

Be sure to make a stop at nearby Pardo's Berrie Farm, or linger at Greatview Orchards for a great selection of fruits and veggies. Mouth-watering fruits of all varieties are waiting for you to pick and brought home as the perfect ingredients for a berry or peach pie. Delhaven Orchards will surely delight as well with seasonal offerings of apples, peaches and a variety of other locally grown fruits. Head to Glad to Grow Glads to u-pick gladiolus and sunflowers while wandering the field of flowers.

The winding roads will lead you and your friends to Deer Run Golf Course or Willow Ridge Golf and Country Club for a challenging round of golf. Travel a little further Shrewsbury for a delightful day on the bay with kayaks rentals from Shrewsbury/ Rondeau Kayaks & Bait. Be sure to explore the Rondeau Bay Marches Conservation Area. You can take in the little town with a hike along Raglan Trails. You can visit Shrewsbury often to attend annual events like the  Artwalk by The Bay,  Ribs N' Blues Festival and Maple Syrup Festival.

Blenheim and area has the undeniable charm of small rural communities and is a quick drive or nice bike ride to the beautiful shores of Lake Erie. There is no doubt that once you visit it will become a regular destination.
