WHAT TO DO

Stroll, shop, then get to the spa! Admire the lovely gardens and tree-lined streets of Cobourg, an Ontario Communities in Bloom 2016 award-winner. Shop for vintage and reclaimed treasures at Legacy Vintage Building Materials & Antiques. Owner Sven Kraumanis “picks the bones” of buildings slated for demolition. A favourite stop for film and TV props. Have a facial or mani-pedi at Mystic Roots or City Streaks, both Aveda concept salons in town, for a little indulgence.

 

Go on a yoga retreat with yoga instructor and dietitian, Francesca Bonta, of Karma Lifestyle Yoga. Bust that stress and gain a new perspective with aerial yoga (where you’re suspended from the ceiling in a fabric swing), essential oils workshops, raw food treats, and a nudge from her sweet dog Zoya.

“When you’re hanging upside down, you have no choice, you have to let go,” Francesca says of experiencing yoga postures in mid-air. “There’s something profound about it that allows you to open up and release from the heart.” Beginners welcome.

Have tea for two, and the Vermicelli Salad Rolls, at Steepleaf Tea Bistro. Sample the tapas plates, perfect for sharing, at El Camino, or go full gourmand with Chef Andrew Stewart’s enticing three-course tasting menu at 92 King.
