Day Trip Escape from the City
Hey all! Don’t forget to get out of the city even in the winter and go for a day trip. The Village at Pigeon Lake is only 1 hour away on highway 13. It’s a nice drive to get to this unique little shopping area. There are 4 restaurants too. If you plan ahead you can even book an appointment at Essentials Spa and Wellness (it’s hard to find a spa this good even in the city).
Seriously, you’ll love nearby Backstreet Antiques, but continue to The Village and visit Fenced Fashions (fun clothing and footwear for women, a small selection of shirts and hats for guys too), The Clothing Store (high end women’s clothing, very unique and a total wow), Lot 7 Cycle (rent some skis or snowshoes, or get a bike for the summer), The Village Emporium (housewares and gift items) and so much more. Did we mention the restaurants?
These are all locally owned independent businesses. The Village at Pigeon Lake is open all year and makes a great destination to escape the city.
