It’s a Winterful Life in Bronte!

Bronte is at its best in every season and winter is no exception. We have unique stores and restaurants, spectacular harbour vistas and streets that are walkable and inviting. If you need more reasons to love the season, here are five that will get you to bundle-up and make Bronte your go-to destination for moments of joy this winter.

#1: It will be love at frost sight when you visit Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park

Connect with the waterfront in your own unique way. Visit the lake at sunrise, close your eyes and listen to the music of the seagulls and the sailboat masts rattling in the wind, catch up with a friend as you sip a coffee in one of our Muskoka chairs, watch the geese and the swans swim amongst the ice floes or walk the pier for fresh air and exercise. Whichever way you choose to experience it, Bronte’s beautiful harbour is waiting for you. 

#2: A meal at one of our exceptional restaurants will fill your belly and your heart

Gather round the table with your favourite people and connect over shared conversation and delicious food. We’ve got fine-dining, family-friendly – and everything in between. We’re talking Indian, Chinese, Mezcal and Mexican, Mediterranean and Italian, to name a few. Find joy (and warmth!) in an amazing meal. Bronte has the best restaurants in Oakville, so make a date with your people and book your reservation today. 

#3: Your support of all things local is directly linked to Bronte’s vibrancy

The businesses that operate in Bronte help to fund and define the unique character of our community. When you support local, more of your money is kept in the local economy and you contribute to community life. We’re talking events and activations (outdoor concerts, family workshops, art installations) and neighbourhood beautification (sidewalk planters, holiday décor, banners). The best part? You’re going to love spending your money in Bronte! We’ve got fashion, home décor, toys, cafés, bakeries, art galleries, restaurants, spas, hair & nail salons and so much more. Support local and take pride knowing that you are part of Bronte’s success story.

#4: You can expect the unexpected when you visit Bronte

Delight in the charm of a district where everyone is welcome and everything you need can be found. Walk into a business that knows your name, visit our Library ON THE GO Book Bike and choose a free book, rest your feet in one of our 100 hand-painted Muskoka chairs and find the hidden lighthouse icon on each chair or stroll the plowed pathways in our park and be inspired by the OPL StoryWalk. Visit Bronte today and discover your own unexpected moments of wonder!   

#5: Bronte is walkable, safe and picturesque

Our pathways and sidewalks are wheelchair, stroller and feet-friendly. With the support of the Town of Oakville, the pathways in Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park are plowed throughout the winter and the public washrooms remain open making it easy to visit. You can walk from Rebecca Street @ Bronte Road in 10 minutes or from Third Line and Oakville South Centre/bus exchange in about 20 minutes. Leave the car at home if you live nearby and enjoy the crisp, fresh air as you stroll, sightsee and shop.

Like we said, bundle-up and visit Bronte today where life is winterful! We can’t wait to welcome you.
