“The Dark Sky Viewing Area offers a night sky experience very similar to what was available more than 100 years ago. (photo by Terence Dickinson) It’s harder than ever to find a patch of clear night sky these days in southern Ontario. More city lights means more light pollution and fewer chances to get wowed by the universe as it actually looks from planet Earth. How to Make the Most of Your Visit As long as the night has fallen and there are few clouds in the sky, the views will be spectacular from the Dark Sky Viewing Area. But if you want to experience the site at its very best, following these tips provided by Terence Dickinson: 1. Choose an evening following a day with deep blue skies, which indicates low humidity and clear air. 2. As pretty as the moon is, choose a moonless or close to moonless night for dark sky viewing with lots of stars and views of the Milky Way. 3. Speaking of the Milky Way, the best times to see it are from 3 am to 5 am in May, 1 am to 3 am in June, 11 pm to 1 am in July, nightfall to 11:30 pm in August, and nightfall to 9:30 pm in September. 4. Bring binoculars or a telescope if you have one. A reclining lawn chair is an ideal accessory, along with warm clothing and a blanket. 5. It really is dark, so bring a small, dim flashlight to see where you’re walking. ”

Bar
“Although a "tavern" may not illicit thoughts of great food this place has the best Nachos I've ever hide in a restaurant. Their burgers are also excellent with fresh cut fries. The food can take some time to get to your table though and service can also be slow. The atmosphere is Tavernish though, there is a restaurant side and a tavern side. The tavern is a little dark and rough around the edges but i think it has character. There is an outdoor patio in the summer.”

Art Gallery
“We love to look around this place - we can't believe such beautiful paintings are right in our backyard (so to speak) a hidden gem if you are an art lover! Quinn's of Tweed Fine Art Gallery features over 6,000 sq.ft. of gallery space. The main and upper floor galleries, host the paintings, photographs, artisan work and fine gifts of our represented contemporary artists. Quinn's of Tweed also offers art consultations, art restorations, as well as professional framing and mounting by our master in-house framer Bev Caswell. Our visitors often ask about the building and it's name, Quinn's of Tweed. In fact, tradition dictates that we keep, with honour, the name Quinn's of Tweed, the original name of the store and building. The Quinn's of Tweed building is one of the town's oldest and most beautiful historic stone structures, dating back to the 1880s. The twelve foot walls allow us to hang paintings in the traditional French salon style. You'll marvel at the craftmanship of the ash and maple staircase, the old bookeeper's office, and the stained glass that brings one back to an era when a handshake and promise were as good as gold - today, we still believe in those principles.”
