Hey friends! Have you ever been to Perth? No, not Perth, Australia but Perth, Ontario. You may think that it may not be as exciting as visiting Australia but let me tell you, the beautiful town of Perth has so much to offer! A year ago, we started doing our weekend getaways to Perth and after a visiting dozen of times, I'm still as in love with the town as I was the first time I visited.
From the people to the boutiques, everything about Perth is welcoming and warm. Here is my weekend guide to the beautiful town of Perth!
Check-in and Breakfast
Check in at the lovely Perth Best Western and start your day off right with a strong brew and a hearty breakfast at the hotel! You get a complimentary with your stay so take advantage of the lovely buffet breakfast they offer.
Go grab a coffee and maybe even a cookie! (oatmeal cookie is my favoruite) at the cutest pie spot, Perth Pie & Co! Everything is made from scratch here will an extra dose of love by Kassy and her team. This spot was the first reason why I fall in love with Perth. Kassy's sweet little spot is as welcoming as she is. Every time I step foot here I get giddy! I get excited to see Kassy and what is in her pie fridge. I know I am not the only one, so I'll proudly share the fact that I also leave here with at least 3 pies! Chicken Pot Pie and a few other goodies like the Wild Blueberry Pie. Make sure you grab some pies and some coffee and cookies for your morning scroll at the Last Duel Park. Just a few steps from the shop is the loveliest little park where you can sit peacefully to watch the water.
Afternoon Activity- Feed your mind, body and tummy
There is so many fun things to do that will keep you going all day long! Try an early afternoon yoga class either at Connection Yoga or Sky Yoga. If you like a good strengthening class, try out Ashley's Strength Flow at Connection Yoga! She's a total rock star and will get your giggling throughout the challenging practice.
After a good walk and yoga practice, go treat yourself to a power lunch! The Fieldhouse has the tastiest sandwich selection and a range of equally tasty beverages, including the mango ginger juice and a some local booch (kombucha)! My personal go to is the Chicken and Bier Sandwich with a full side of kale salad. Its a lot of food but I always manage to finish everything in one sitting.
Feed your inner fashionista
Shopping in Perth is so satisfying. The town is filled with unique little boutiques that are all very different in style. For my comfort chic ladies, please visit Likkiud Sole. The store has a wide range of unique items to choose from including shoes! Think quality made items that do not sacrifice fashion. For my girly girls, I've got the store that you'll love! Flint and Honey is a sweet little store when romance meet elegance. They also have the cutest little baby stuff!! FYI-they do dresses very well. I've gotten some killer sun dresses there!
More food! Supper time!
My favourite time of day! Supper time! I just love ending my day at the patio of the Rocky River Cafe. Just recently, the cafe started serving oysters and they are delicious!! For mains, I suggest any of the burgers they have or the Chicken Marsala. The Chicken Marsala is what I dream about at night... its so flavorful and satisfying, I try to eat it as quickly as I can so I don't have to share it. I know, I'm horrible but for Chicken Marsala, I would do it!
I hope you pay Perth a visit and check out all these gems at your next trip! If I've convinced you to go to Perth, consider joining me at my next Yoga & Spa event at the beautiful Parkside Spa!
