Picturesque scenery, local cuisine, and endless rows of vineyards: no, I'm not talking of Bordeaux or Napa but the Prince Edward County wine scene. A short hour drive from Toronto, this wine region (aka The County) lined along Lake Ontario has become a go-to weekend getaway in my neck of the woods.
Living in Manhattan for almost a decade, I was used to having everything at my fingertips. Well, everything except nature. But after relocating to Denver, getting outdoors is my norm, with one my favorites being the road trip to Boulder. And, as the weather thaws, Boulder is a pretty perfect day trip because it has something for everyone — hiking or biking; shopping; and lots of great dining. I tend to do all three: head on a hike, stock up on produce at the Farmers Market, and finish the afternoon with a bite (or two).
