Not everyone is a fan of the outdoors so for those who aren’t, then a visit to the Canadian Gold Hall of Fame and Museum will surely be appreciated. Oakville is commonly thought of as “the home of the Canadian Open” by tourists and residents alike so it is expected that the town loves golf. The museum celebrates gold in all its forms, from history, technical specifications, love of the game, and more.
Oakville Museum at Erchless Estate
Anyone who is interested in history shouldn’t miss a visit to the Oakville Museum at Erchless Estate this winter. The Erchless Estate was built by the Chisholm family, Oakville’s founding family. Their home is now the Oakville Museum which is open year-round. There are several historic buildings on the Estate as well as artifacts for viewing.
For the adventure-seekers out there, iFly Toronto is a must-visit this winter, The iFly Toronto facility uses Skyventure technology, the most advanced and safe technology in the world for indoor skydiving.

Oakville boasts of plenty of green spaces that are available to the public year-round. There are gardens, trails, and parks for everyone to enjoy. The trails alone are estimated at about 150 kilometres making them perfect for nature walks in the cold weather.
Dave & Buster’s
Dave & Buster’s has a long and endearing history. In the 1970s, Dave opened an entertainment and gaming place and Buster opened a restaurant that became known for friendly service and amazing food. They both noticed that people love both of their places and usually rotate between the restaurant and the gaming place. They then decided to join their businesses under one roof and Dave & Buster’s came into being. To this day, Dave & Buster’s is a great place to hang out for some fun and good food, especially when everything is blanketed in the snow outdoors!
