In 1956, the first A&W drive-in restaurant in Canada opened on Portage Avenue in Winnipeg. Serving a delicious combination of great-tasting burgers, onion rings and frosted mugs of famous A&W Root Beer®—all from the smiling faces of friendly car hops—A&W proved to be an instant hit. A&W Restaurants quickly multiplied across the nation, flourishing through the late '50s and '60s.

Be sure to visit Alvin Martin of Misty Meadows Country Market in Conn. Alvin, who came up with the idea of the Horse and Buggy Trail in 2009, is happy to see the Trail finally open and
welcomes everyone to visit the farms and other
businesses on the Trail.
Open year round, the Trail follows the scenic back
roads of Southgate. Visit the tidy farmsteads where you are welcome to browse for local food, maple syrup, eggs, flowers, baking, and preserves galore plus two local butchers, an authentic general store, a baker, furniture makers and even a buggy shop and old feed mill!
Take your time; cycle, drive or book a buggy ride
