5) Collingwood

This prime tourist spot is very picturesque, and there are an abundance of ways you can enjoy fall in Collingwood.

4) Agawa Canyon Tour Train

This might not be one “place” specifically, but you can take this train around Algoma, 114 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie, and get inspired by the incredible Canadian Shield up north. On this “departure from the ordinary” you can escape for up to three days, and while peak fall colours are around the beginning of October, it’s still an incredible tour. On the tour, you can see exactly what inspired Group of Seven paintings, too.
