Cornwall Ontario’s Top Attractions for Fall 2017 091217


Although we still have a few weeks of warmer weather left, most residents of Cornwall will have noticed how it’s starting to get darker earlier in the evening.

But thankfully, there are plenty of great entertainment options that should help all of us stave off the dark days of winter with Hollywood blockbusters, lavish casino attractions, and the wonders of the great outdoors.

Natural beauty

Cornwall is blessed with plenty of natural wonders that offer all of us a great day out. From watching the bountiful wildlife at the Gray’s Creek Conservation Area to inspecting the eerie marvel of St Raphael’s Ruins, there’s always something new to discover.

But it’s perhaps simple things like taking a long and relaxing walk along the Waterfront Trail that is amongst the best things to do in fall – particularly once the trees start turning the wonderful colours of red, russet and gold!

Indoor attractions

Of course we can’t rely on Ontario’s unpredictable climate to ensure a perfect day outdoors. And thankfully, there are plenty of indoor attractions with a great season of movies showing at the Galaxy cinema on Second Street East. Be sure to check the listings for when big movies like Blade Runner 2049 and Thor: Ragnarok hit Cornwall’s movie screens.

Those who are feeling a little competitive could head to the much-loved Olympia Bowl on Ninth Street West to try their bowling skills. And although the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort on the St Lawrence River offers plenty of glamorous table games, you can even enjoy all of these gaming options and more via Lucky Nugget Casino’s gaming website for the ultimate in convenience.

Unusual museums

Cornwall is also blessed with some interesting museums that never fail to educate us about history and development of the region. Although the fantastic Historic SDG Jail has closed its doors after a successful summer period, there’s plenty more to discover. The fantastic Cornwall Community Museum recently featured many fascinating exhibits for the recent Canada Day, and there’s expected to be more interesting activities for fall.

The St Lawrence Power Development Visitor Centre always provides a fascinating glimpse into how hydroelectric power is used to give us electricity in our homes. And whether we use this electricity to research Ontario’s Trails of Distinction, or just play another mobile casino game, it all shows just how much there is to explore in Cornwall this fall!
