ST. JACOBS & MENNONITE COUNTRY

June 21 –23, 2018

3 – Day Tour

In a thriving community just west of Guelph and north of Waterloo, a large group of Mennonite people live and work in harmony with the land and their neighbours. Their ways are different, the pace is different, and their lifestyle is dictated by their firmly rooted faith. After visiting this community, some say “interesting”, some say “refreshing” or “fascinating”. Come with us and form your own opinions.

Itinerary Details

DAY 1 Our travels today take us west to Toronto, our lunch stop and then on to our home for two nights right in the heart of Mennonite Country. After check-in, there is time to freshen up ready for dining at Anna Mae’s Restaurant. For those still brimming with energy, you have opportunity to spend some time at the St. Jacob Factory Outlets within walking distance of our hotel.

DAY 2 This morning enjoy a locally guided countryside tour from the comfort of our Motorcoach. The Mennonite Farms are easily spotted because of their size and the fact that they are always mixed farming operations. There are other distinctive defining qualities as well. A visit to this area would not be complete without a visit to Picard Peanuts and time in the village of St. Jacobs to explore the many interesting shops. This evening you will have a great time at the St. Jacobs Country Theatre featuring “The Rainmaker”, a romantic comedy of laughter with a that makes a handsome case for miracles. Enjoy dinner at The Stone Crock in St Jacob’s before the show.

DAY 3 This morning will find us at the St Jacob’s & Waterloo Farmers Market and Auction. Plan to have lunch on your own before we leave here today. It has been another interesting day and we depart early this afternoon, expecting to be back in Cornwall before early evening.
