Places to Go

Edit 17542 Description

Our small towns and back roads are waiting for you. Whether you're discovering one of our small towns of Ingersoll, Tillsonburg or Woodstock or you're on our backroads in one of our smaller villages and hamlets, there's a new adventure to be found. Whether you're buying meat from a bison farm, visiting a local woodworker, creating with an artist or something completely different, you'll love embracing our rural routes! 

Located in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, Oxford County is located on some of the province's richest farmland. Just 5.5 hours from Ottawa and 1.5 hours from downtown Toronto, Oxford is an amazing place to spend a getaway enjoying food fresh from the land. Our biggest city (Woodstock) is located right where Highways 401 and 403 meet so it's super easy to get to and acts as a gateway to the rest of the county. Want to know more?
