Best Spots to See Fall Colours

As autumn transitions us from summer to winter, we are given a few months of sweater weather and colourful trees all around. As the window to see fall foliage isn’t as long as snowfall or sunny summer days, we’ve created a list of the perfect spots in Markham to experience all the fall colours mother nature has to offer!  #visitmarkham
