We visited Upper Canada Village and had a blast. This is the second time we've visited and both times we saw a few different things. Upper Canada Village is set in the 1860s with buildings built according to that time and people in costume, horse drawn wagons and a lot of British Flags.
You'll find a blacksmith, a flour and saw mill powered by water, a store, hotel, church, dress maker store, doctor's house and many more buildings. The kids love wandering around and seeing the different houses, the horses and just the whole feel of it being a little different.
I enjoy the little details, the quiet of no cars or other motors and the family walk we get out of it. It's a lovely place to visit and only an hour away from Ottawa. The weather was hot and sunny so we were glad the restaurant does not abide by 1860s standards and has AC - it was a chance to eat a quick bite and cool down.
You can visit for hours or just stay a bit - it's a beautiful place to stop by - they have events throughout the summer and fall. Next time I want to visit before Christmas for the 'Alight the Night' festival when more than half a million lights are hung in the village - I imagine it to be magical.
