Middlesex and Sarnia-Lambton Ontario 2 Day Itinerary

So what inspired us to see more of Ontario’s Southwest? It started with our incredible experience in Oxford County where we followed the Oxford County Cheese Trail and uncovered many gems along the way.

With this 2 day itinerary covering Middlesex and Sarnia-Lambton, we looked to explore neighbouring counties in Ontario’s Southwest. Not only did this meet our expectations, but it exceeded what we expected to find there.

This is definitely worthy of being added to our best weekend Ontario road trips.

Only taking 2.5 hours to get from Toronto to Middlesex County, this weekend getaway is easy to do either as a 1 night trip or a full 2 nights if you’re not in a rush.

If you’re curious about where these counties are, take a look at the map below from Ontario’s Southwest Tourism.

Day 1 – Middlesex County

For your first day of the 2 day weekend getaway from Ontario, you’ll be driving to Middlesex County. If you’re like us and coming Toronto, it’s a lot closer than you think!

As you’re about to see, Middlesex will surprise you. From the highway, you’ll see the rural farms that feed the province but if you know where to go, you’ll be able to discover a bounty of local experiences and superb dining.

Stop 1 – Kustermans Adventure Farm

Pick-your-own farms are always a fun one whether you’re going as a couple or family. Kustermans Adventure Farm offers a variety of fruits and sunflowers throughout the year. They also have a huge adventure farm for kids with an endless number of rides and activities.

Kustermans is a generational favourite as you’ll find locals and visitors from all over flock to here. They are best known for their blueberries, which you might’ve guessed from their mascot and this goes from July to August.

Their pick-your-own (PYO) system is pretty streamlined where you pre-pay for $7 for each adult which covers two pounds of blueberries each and when you come back, they weigh everything you picked, and you pay the difference.

kustermans adventure farm map

There is a tractor wagon ride that runs from the main gate to the fields and from there you are free to pick from the rows that they direct you to. You can stay as long as you want and if other fields are open, hop back on the wagon ride to get to them.

Note: You cannot walk to the PYO fields. You must use their wagon ride transportation system.

For the kids, there’s a whole wonderland of rides, activities, games, animals and more to discover. You can buy the general admission tickets at the main gate or you can purchase them online.

Lastly, there’s the Kustermans Market which is the first building you see after you park. This is where you’ll be able to purchase food, toys for the kids, merchandise, jams, pies, or already-picked fruits from the farm.

After picking your own fruits, you’ll come away from it with serious appreciation for what farmers do, and also very thirsty and hungry so your growling stomach will appreciate what comes next.

To be clear, the village you see here is not an actual site, but it was built based on data from archeologists and stories passed down from indigenous community members.

Stop 6 – Tia’s Place

In the heart of downtown Strathroy is Tia’s Place, a Portuguese that you won’t believe is in this county. Having eaten here, we can say that it’s legit and delicious.

On the menu are many authentic dishes that you’d fine in Portugal such as chouriço asado, bifana & fries, bacalhau a bras, carne de porco alentejana, and chicharro frito.

Paired with local ingredients that’s freshly prepared, you can’t go wrong with anything you order.

Point Edward is a charming village adjacent to the city of Sarnia in Sarnia-Lambton County that is located right by the Blue Water Bridge that crosses over to the United States.

Michigan Avenue is a lively street tons of fabulous local businesses and one of them is the Mexican restaurant, Los Puntos Cantina.

Splashed with vibrant colours not only on its walls, but it’s also in their glasses overflowing with margaritas, in the ingredients of their yummy tacos, and the overall energy of space both inside and out on the patio.

Stop 4 – Ice Cream Galore

ice cream galore with hydroflask food jars

Ice Cream Galore is that old-fashioned ice cream parlor that serves all of your favourite classics. With generations of locals that grew up on treats from here, there’s a reason why there’s usually a line outside of the inviting waft of fresh waffle cones being made when you pass by.

They offer an expansive selection of icy treats that range from well-known makers like Nestle but also locally made ones from London Ice Cream Company, Shaw’s Ice Cream, and other local Ontario dairies.

If you’ve taken a sneak peek at what’s ahead, something that we recommend is to use Hydroflask food jars. As you know, on a hot summer’s day, ice cream will melt incredibly fast so if you are to make it to your next stop with it intact, this’ll be your best way to go.

Stop 5 – Canatara Beach & Park

Sarnia-Lambton County is called Ontario’s Blue Coast and if you didn’t know to come to this stop, you probably wouldn’t have figured out why.

Sarnia is the largest city on one of the Great Lakes, Lake Huron. For the uninitiated, this might not seem special, but head to Canatara Beach and you’ll see some of the bluest water and feel incredibly soft sand as well.

As one of 26 Blue Flag beaches in Canada, add this beach to your growing list of surprises.

With beach gear in tow, find your own slice of paradise, enjoying that still-cold ice cream, sand between your feet, and jump into that refreshingly cool and clean water.

If you’re interested in seeing more of this coast, we recommend that you visit Pinery Provincial Park which is just a little further north and also located in the same county.

After a healthy dose of vitamin D, you’ll cooling down in ridiculous fun next.

District Beta is for the gamer that’s in all of us. They have retro consoles, space for tabletop games (think Magic The Gathering and Warhammer), arcade games, escape rooms, and virtual reality (VR).

The new generation consoles are fun but there’s something about retro gaming machines like the original Nintendo, Super Nintendo, GameCube, Nintendo 64, and Sega Genesis that can’t be beat. Whether it’s the nostalgia, simplicity, or hilarious tackiness, you can easily spend hours here.

Next, try the newest style of gaming there is – VR. Don the headset and slide on the controllers. Before you know it, you’ll be transported to another world where trolls need to be vanquished at the castle wall, zombies need to be eliminated, or you can simply hone your lightsaber skills.

We’re not joking when we say that you can spend a whole afternoon here.

For your final stop, you’ll be eating dinner at one of our favourite places.

You may or may not have heard of Refined Fool Brewing Company at your local LCBO in Ontario, but brews with names like Gorgeous Giant Gets His Way, Illiterate Librarians, Van Full of Weirdos, and Cherry Troll, should give you an idea of the spunk, vibe, and fun they get down to.

Their largest location is called the Big Fool where they feature 20 tap lines, bottle shop, and food from Burger Rebellion. This is also where they brew their big batches which you’ll see at the back.

Starting out as a food truck, Burger Rebellion has quickly earned serious reputation for being the best burgers in town. We had a chance to try The Zealot and The Uprising and I can say they might be the best burgers I’ve ever had.

With all sorts of colourful cartoon characters, community events, live bands, and a packed house, this is the place to be in Sarnia-Lambton County.
