Exploring Ontario's Southwest

Exploring Ontario's Southwest

One thing that our young & free press team has learned since we started-up the business is that there are remarkable things happening every day in our communities … we just have to jump in and explore! Well, we now have the opportunity to take this spirit to a whole new level: beginning this spring, we will be collaborating with the Southwest Ontario Tourism Corporation to present some fun new content on our Instagram page! Here are the details …

 First, we will be producing a series of segments titled ‘Hop, Skip & a Jump’, in which we highlight three things to do in various cities, towns and villages in Ontario’s Southwest. In addition to our home-base of London, St. Thomas and Elgin County, we will be making trips to Chatham-Kent, Oxford County, Norfolk County, Haldimand County, Sarnia-Lambton, Middlesex County and Windsor-Essex-Pelee Island. Restaurants, shops, parks, galleries, music venues, entertainment centres, coffee bars, adventure-tourism destinations, farmers’ markets, beaches and event spaces … we’ll find all the cool places! We are really looking forward to meeting lots of new people and discovering beautiful and exciting spots around the region.

 Second – and for something entirely new – we will be introducing ‘The Teenager’s Guide to Ontario’s Southwest’, focussing on what teenagers want to see and do! Our team of teenage journalists and micro-influencers, including Maddie King, Jenn Klassen, Alex Popen and Emily Stage, will bring an undeniably fresh perspective to the area.

 If you would like us to visit your community, please feel free to get in touch and let us know what you think we should check out – just send an email or a direct message through Instagram! Also, for businesses, arts organizations, and tourism venues around the region, we’ve set up some great new ways to partner with our young & free press team … to get all the details, simply send a note anytime to our owner & editor, Andrew Gunn, at andrew@youngandfreepress.ca

 We’re looking forward to an awesome spring, summer and fall in Ontario’s Southwest! For lots of great info on events and experiences around the region, definitely check out www.ontariossouthwest.com
