DAY IN THE LIFE – LINCOLN
Welcome to Lincoln! Join Olivia Rozema as she leads you through vibrant arts and culture spots around the Town of Lincoln and introduces you to their Culture Days celebrations.
We explore the Ball’s Falls ghost town, and some of the events on offer at the nearby Lincoln Museum. For the Culture Days festival, the Lincoln Museum will bring us back in time to explore what life as part of the Lincoln Pioneer Week.
Heritage sites aren’t the only places to learn about the history of this community. Olivia gave us some recommendations on where to take a break and catch the fall colours. Head to the Bruce Trail, the oldest and longest hiking trail in Canada, or tour one of the 50 vineyards that call Lincoln home.
Don’t forget to finish the day by heading to one of their fruit markets. There is a reason this town is known as the “Fruit Basket of Ontario.”
