Start this winter getaway off right with some well-deserved personal TLC time at the Sanctuary International Day Spa, a full service spa located in a beautifully restored 5,000 square foot historical home, in Historic Downtown Newmarket. Sit back, relax, and temporarily escape the winter blahs with a spa treatment of your choice. Then bundle up, grab a coffee and take a stroll down Main Street Newmarket and discover why it was voted the 2016 People’s Choice Street for the greatest Main Street in Canada.
Stop in at Made in Mexico for some authentic Mexican cuisine, or head to the acclaimed Hungry Brew Hops for a tasting of the days’ ales. With 37 rotating taps of the finest microbrews and wines, and its own unique spin on traditional pub food, you won’t be disappointed! Curious to learn about the brewing process, take a short drive over to Market Brewing Co., Newmarket’s newest brewery, featuring a 3,000 square-foot Taproom and offering free Saturday afternoon tours of their brewing facilities. But first, a stop at the Maids’ Cottage, for their award-winning butter tarts, is in order. Call it a day and retire to the Newmarket Holiday Inn Express.
Start the next morning off at the complimentary hot breakfast bar. Then hit the road, and head to the Holland Marsh Wineries, for your pre-reserved guided tour and tasting of their exceptional handcrafted wines. Spend the day exploring neighbouring King Township and stop for a bite to eat at Pine Farms Orchard Café. Locals rave about their pear and brie sandwich and sweeping views of the countryside. If you’d rather keep moving, grab a personal brown bag lunch for the road instead. And while you’re at, a fresh-baked pie, to enjoy back home, is a must!
