Visiting picturesque Perth in Autum (Fall) is a great experience. It well deserves the honour of being "the prettiest town in Ontario." (given to Perth by TVO)

The trees are chaging color to beautiful reds, yellows, oranges and purples. The maple trees are at their best at the end of September or early October. The aspens, tamaracks and red oaks reach their peak in the middle or end of October. The sumac foliage is all red. The air is cool and crisp. The town is quieter and relaxing.

It's the time of year artisans love the most, "the creative time that allows us to produce the work we love."

You can drive along the Trans Canada Highway, Hwy #7, to reach Perth from the Ottawa or Toronto/Peterborough directions; it is rewarding drive at this time of year. Or if you are coming from Kingston/Brockville head out Division St, up the Perth Road, through Westport, and into Perth for a magnificient 60 minute trip. Just Beautiful . . . . .

There is nothing more spectacular or romantic than the dramatic changes autumn brings to the forests in and around Perth.

Yes, this is a great time of year to visit Perth with family and friends and just relax and enjoy all that this quaint little town has to offer.

Enjoy some of the areas' Hiking Trails, visit The Round Garden For The Blind, take a healthy Walking Tour around town, visit the Perth Wildlife Reserve, or one of the many Provincial Parks or Conservation Areas.

Stewart Park with its extensive grounds, flower beds and mature trees is an oasis of beauty in the fall. The Tay and Little Tay Rivers run through the Park and provide a great place to relax and have a picnic.
