10 things to do in Main Street Unionville

Main Street Unionville is very similar to Niagara-On-The-Lake. The only difference is that there are no Niagara Falls and no Shaw Festival. Other than that, there are great shops, lots of activities during the summer, and even plenty of spots to enjoy a picnic.

Here are my top 10 things to do in Main Street Unionville.

1.)  Ice Cream. The Old Firehall Confectionery (at 170 Main Street) specializes in a wide variety of old fashioned, handmade sweets and treats.

2.) Live music. Every Thursday evening, during the summer, you can find live bands playing under the Bandstand. Concerts start at 7:30pm until 9pm.

3.) Classic Cars. I don’t know what it is about Main Street Unionville. You will almost always find a classic car or two. Either driving slowly along the boulevard or parked just off the street.

4.)  Fun art installations. You won’t find anything huge. But you’ll see plenty of small and interesting pieces scattered throughout town.

7.) Shopping. Yes, there’s lots of shopping to do on Main Street. What would an old town be without shopping? 🙂

8.) Festivals. One of the best things about Ontario are the festivals. My favourites are the Markham Jazz Festival and Unionville Festival.
