2020 has delivered more than its fair share of surprises – so it’s no surprise that we’re all ready for some holiday cheer and finding safe ways to celebrate.

Since Route 24 Auto is as passionate about family values as we are about exceptional used vehicles at great prices – we’ve come up with a collection of our favourite things to do in the Brantford area to share in hopes of adding a little more joy to your 2020.

Glenhyrst Gardens

Not only a beautiful art gallery both inside and out, Glenhyrst offers beautiful gardens and grounds that are delightful to wander through during any season – and particularly charming with their annual display of stunning Christmas lights. Perfect for an evening stroll or drive with the family or a quaint little date night – the lights at Glenhyrst Gardens are a must for anyone looking to enjoy the local pleasures available in Brantford. Find the gardens and holiday light display available from December 4, 2020 to January 1, 2021 from 6 to 9 pm nightly.

Skis Please

The Brantford area is home to an extensive trail network that is beautiful all year round – and just perfect for stretching your legs and soaking in some snowy scenery throughout the winter months. For trail lovers and cross-country skiers, we highly recommend the SC Johnson Trail, which is a lovely 14-km stretch between Paris and Brantford with pretty views of the Grand River, sprawling fields and grasslands. For those seasoned skiers who are feeling particularly ambitious – try the Hamilton to Brantford Rail Trail, a 32-km trail that features picturesque country views and follows the scenic Dundas Valley. Grab your boots, skis, sleds, snowshoes – whatever you choose and hit the trails for a beautiful day on the move.

Make It Extra Merry

With a last name like Merry…this Lynden area family-run tree farm is the perfect destination to find and cut down your own tree, while soaking in holiday fun, beautiful views and making memories. Complete with rolling hills, roaring weekend bonfires, a unique Christmas shop, tree-drilling and wrapping – Merry Farms is truly the picturesque Christmas tree experience that family dreams are made of. If you’re looking for the experience without the hard work – pre-cut trees are available and ready for the taking. Head on out to Lynden and add a little more fun to your 2020 holiday season – you’ll be glad you did!

Keeping You and Yours Safe This Season

2020 has dealt us with one unexpected event after another, and at Route 24 Auto, we don’t take chances when it comes to safety and reliability. As an example of our great used vehicles – and one that will easily and safely get you, your skis, and your Christmas trees around in the years to come – we invite you to swing out for a test drive of this amazing 2017 Jeep Cherokee currently in our inventory. Since it is the holiday season…don’t you think it’s time you had a nice new present under the tree, and in the driveway? Complete with 4X4, luggage racks, backup sensors, and all the bells & whistles – this is a great deal on a great used vehicle – and ideal for your family this 2020 holiday season.

We hope you enjoy our winter fun suggestions and look forward to seeing you soon for a used vehicle test drive at Route 24 Auto!
