Outside my Front Door Ontario, Canada
We spend most of the year at our home in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, as we both work full time jobs here and travel part-time. Justin and I live in an apartment in an area of town called Port Credit, which is a village by the lake. We love living here. I actually wrote about Port Credit’s waterfront area quite extensively in a recent blog post , which quickly inspired an entire series on our blog called “Tourist In Our Town” . I truly feel like there are so many places to explore right in our own backyard, which works out great for us as we live at home for most of the year and travel when we can!
We are able to walk outside of our apartment and choose a couple of different directions. If we head south down a street, we will walk towards Lake Ontario and the Waterfront Trail. If we walk to the east, we’ll encounter the vibrant downtown area that is home to pubs, cafes, restaurants, and many festivals throughout the year. We love to go for walks and bike rides down by the lake along the Waterfront Trail. This trail connects several towns and cities that are near the lake. There are several parks along this paved path, including J.C. Saddington Park, where residents and visitors alike flock for picnics and relaxing times together.
