ORILLIA, Ontario --Local residents and visitors are encouraged to experience all things maple this spring on what just might be the sweetest route through one of the prettiest parts of the province.
“Last year, we changed the Flavours of Lake Country event where area restaurants featured maple-themed meals during maple syrup season,” said Jennifer Whitley, marketing manager of Ontario’s Lake Country.

The ambitious new venture has evolved into a tour of the region’s most popular eateries, resorts, sugar bushes, museums and shops, where every destination – all 23 of them – will have something to do with maple, the quintessential Canadian flavour.
