Ontario's Hidden Gems Exposed - Green Acres Inn

Ontario's Hidden Gems Exposed - Green Acres Inn

This week we travel to the beautiful Eastern Ontario – Great Waterway region.   Our journey begins in Lime Stone City located on the eastern end of Lake Ontario.  Lime Stone City got its name from the abundance of heritage buildings that we’re constructed using lime stone in the 17th century.  Lime Stone city has also been put on the map by the iconic “true” Canadian band, The Tragically Hip who taught us a lot about Canadian history, hockey and that old checker board floor that most of us have experienced!
