A lot of people will be waiting until January 1 to start trying to get in shape – but by then, gyms will be crowded, and most people will just give up. No, the best thing to do is get out and get active NOW! And why not? Southern Ontario is beautiful at this time of year!

Here are some fun things you can do this winter in Cornwall to get a headstart on your New Year’s resolution!



Don’t let the name fool you – the Summerstown Trails are great in the winter! That’s because they’re home to some lovingly groomed Nordic skiing trails!

Nordic skiing, also known as cross-country skiing, is one of the best workouts in the world! A full-body cardio exercise, Nordic skiing uses your upper body, your lower body and your core as you work to propel yourself across a gorgeous Winter landscape! While it can be tricky at first, once you get into it it’s almost zen – a calming journey through beautiful winter settings you wouldn’t get to see otherwise!

Summerstown boasts over 20 KM of trails that take you through the forests and offer a variety of views and landscapes. Even better, they offer ski rentals as well as lessons for novice skiers!



Of course, one of the best things you can do for your body is go for a walk! Cornwall’s historic Lamoureux Park is always stunning in winter, covered in snow and providing a full view of the rushing St. Lawrence River. Take a friend or partner and go for a stroll through the jewel of Cornwall this winter!

Planning on a winter getaway? Then stay at the Ramada Cornwall. We’re centrally located and offer incredible comfort for a great price. And, if you’ve spent your day getting in shape in the cold, you’ll appreciate our hotel hotel tub! Book your room today to enjoy a winter wonderland!

Cornwall in December is the very vision of a winter wonderland! Come visit if you need help getting into the holiday spirit. There’s plenty going on to make you excited for the season!



Performing at St. John’s Presbyterian Church on December 2, the Seaway Winds Band featuring vocal soloist Danielle Vailliancourt along with guest conductor Glenn Morrison. These seasoned performers will perform the most spiritual, sacred music of the season in the truly special location of St. John’s, making for a show that will get you in the holiday mood in no time!



Based on the hit Christmas comedy starring Will Ferrell, Elf is coming to the stage in Cornwall this December! The hilarious and heartwarming story of a human boy who is raised as one of Santa’s elves coming to hustling and bustling New York city to find his real dad, Elf reminds us of the importance of enjoying your time together as a family, all while making you laugh! Presented by the Seaway Valley Theatre December 8 and 9, this will be a great family outing.



One of the best things about Christmas is the music. Sure, it may not seem like that when you’re in the grocery store hearing all those annoying pop Christmas songs for the umpteenth time, but the TRUE classics like “Silent Night,” “Oh Christmas Tree,” “Hark The Herald Angels Sing” and many, many more are timeless – and there’s nothing like hearing a trained choir perform these angelic carols! On December 14, you can see the Centennial Choir of Cornwall perform their show, Together For Christmas at the Aultsville Theatre!

Any time you stay in Cornwall, know you’ll find your best accommodations at the Ramada. Our comfortable rooms combine upscale quality and an affordable rate. Book your stay at the Ramada Cornwall today!

Given that Cornwall is the kind of town you can raise a family, we do holidays like Christmas RIGHT. We know – it’s annoying that stores play Christmas music throughout November now, and the advertisements on TV get to be too much – but when you see kids’ eyes light up at the mention of Santa, or you see the rosy cheeks on smiling faces in the snow, it’s hard to blame us for getting excited. Here are some upcoming events that are great for getting into that Holiday mood!



We look forward to this every year. Marking the beginning of the Christmas season, The Santa Claus Parade starts at St. Lawrence Secondary School and moves through town, with plenty of spots for you and your family to pull up to the street and watch! Cornwall’s community really pulls out the stops for this one, and this year’s theme is “Christmas Movies.” We’re excited to see what everyone puts together, and we think you should be too!



One of Cornwall’s most beautiful churches, Nativité Co-Cathedral has a storied history and a beautiful organ that has been instrumental in their worship for decades. On November 18, Gilles-Maurice LeClerc will present a series of five improvised pieces in memory of dearly departed organist Regis Serre. Organ music is truly beautiful, and a great way to get into the spirit of Christmas!



Taking place at the Cornwall Civic Complex, the Very Big Christmas Show is your chance to get your Christmas shopping done early! Featuring over 50 vendors selling fantastic Christmas gifts, door prizes, a wrapping station and a chance for your kids to get their photo taken with Santa, all proceeds from the door will go towards helping the Cornwall Optimist Toy Drive! You can feel good about getting your shopping done ahead of time AND giving to charity!

Whatever brings you to Cornwall this November, there’s no better way to warm up your rosy cheeks than a stay at the Ramada Cornwall. The cold air is delightful, but our complimentary hot tub right after will be even better!
