  • A walk on the Doris McCarthy Trail, which takes you through a wooded gully and alongside the area’s stunning white cliffs
  • Sunday brunch at Bickford Bistro, overlooking Guild Park and Gardens 
  • Snapping a photo in front of the Guildwood street mural, which was created by artists Chris Perez and Leyland Adams
