Fire up your Porsche for one of 2019’s final — and best — driving tours as we carve our way through Kawartha Lakes’ rolling hills, rugged rock and flat plains, set ablaze in all their autumn glory, via some of the smoothest and curviest highways, with a relaxing gourmet lunch stop at Stone 21 restaurant at the fabulous Pinestone Resort in Haliburton.
This extraordinary drive begins at 10 a.m. just north of Toronto, in Uxbridge, warming up with some sweeping curves and straight blasts as we head into rural lake country. We snag a quick pit stop in Bobcaygeon and then tackle some seriously fantastic highways on our way to Haliburton and a delicious lunch at Stone 21 restaurant, relaxing among Kawartha Lakes’ tremendous natural beauty, amped up by fall’s foliage and crisp clear air.
After lunch, we snake our way back towards civilization through the heart of the Kawarthas, again on some of the area’s best roads, nestled among various waterways and marshlands, scattered farms, mature woods and sprawling countryside.
To wrap up, we pop into a diner for a refreshing beverage, possibly a snack, to share some stories of the day’s great adventure before dispersing and setting off for our respective homes.
This driving tour has been moved up two weeks from last year’s edition so that we find more coloured leaves on the trees rather than on the ground — though there was still a spectacular kaleidoscope hanging on — as well as a slightly warmer temperature.
It won’t be long before many Porsches are tucked away into hibernation for the cold winter, so don’t miss one of 2019’s final exciting driving tours!
