A Weekend In Oakville

Hello lovelies!

I do love a good staycation, as you’ve read about in my previous city guides on Port Credit and Burlington. It’s been a little while since my last GTA staycation guide. This post is a special one, as I have I teamed up with Visit Oakville to showcase some of Oakville’s hidden gems.


Did you know that I actually lived in Oakville?


…For about seven months during the school year during my post-grad at Sheridan. Funnily enough,   I never really took the time to explore what great things this town has.

I think that late summer is such a great time to go because there are so many events going on! Oakville is a pretty chill city, and a great one for a little summer escape away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, but it still has plenty of things to offer.

Venturing to far-away lands can sometimes be time-consuming and expensive – why not take a staycation? Today, we’re looking into some of the best spots to stay, eat, and visit around the Oakville and Bronte area.

Hello lovelies! Hope your Christmas and New Year’s celebrations were fun! I’m starting to get back into the swing of regular blog posts. How did you spend your New Year’s Eve? I’ve always been the type of person who wants to go out on New Year’s, wear a fancy dress, and party all night! However, I’ve haven’t actually been able to cross that off my bucklet list. Maybe next year. This New Year’s Eve, we took it easy.

Matt and I had a pair of free tickets to the Ontario Science Centre which expired on the 31st. We had no other plans, so we thought why not? I’ve never actually been to the Science Centre, so we figured it would make for a nice little date. Unfortunately it’s a little ways outside of downtown Toronto, just off the Don Mills Parkway.

Liquid nitrogen ice cream - a concept I had never heard about before going to The Ice Cream Lab in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. With tons of customizable options, the Ice Cream Lab lets customers pick base flavours and topics to be added to a liquid nitrogen mixture, producing smooth, creamy ice cream!

Ice Cream Laboratory – Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream

Liquid nitrogen ice cream – a concept I had never heard about before going to The Ice Cream Lab in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. The Ice Cream Lab lets customers pick base flavours and toppings to be added to a liquid nitrogen mixture, producing smooth, creamy ice cream with tons of customizable options! The idea is pretty similar to Cold Stone creamery (with the marble slab), except much more ~sciencey~. Keep reading for my order and experience!
