You can hate on the snow and chilly winds all you want (I know I do), but the truth is when that white magic falls from the sky, you simply cannot deny its beauty.

Whether you’re looking to escape for a few hours or want to spend the whole weekend inside of this nearly perfect snow globe of a town, Elora is an incredible spot to visit.

This is one that you totally have to see to believe.

The best thing about Elora is that it offers a solid mix of downtown charm and into-the-woods type adventure. 

Once you've had your fill of frozen hikes, you can head into town to explore the numerous shops and cafes that line the streets.

You will fall in love with the old victorian style touches sprinkled throughout. 

And with a handful of businesses lining the picturesque water, you'll start to feel a real Italy vibe too.

Of course, a trip to Elora in the winter isn't complete without a dip in the Elora Mill hot springs. Talk about a magical winter view.

If you're lucky enough to arrive when the snow is falling, then be sure to get a window seat at one of the cafes to take in the view. You'll feel like you're inside of a Christmas postcard for real.
