Black Creek Pioneer Village Christmas

Have you ever wondered what Christmas celebrations were like back in Victorian times? Take a step back to the 19th century at Black Creek Pioneer Village. This historic site hosts a range of events to help you discover what Victorian holiday traditions were like.

Summer Road Trip Safety Tips to Keep Your Trip Fun

Summer Road Trip Safety Tips to Keep Your Trip Fun | Toronto, ON

If you’re heading out on the open road this summer, you’re not alone. Throughout Canada, many people will be doing just that. Here at Downtown Lincoln, to ensure that your road trip is both fun and safe, we’ve put together a few summer road trip safety tips for you to keep in mind.

Understand the terrain.

Throughout the country, there are a range of terrain types, from mountains to prairies. Depending on where you’re driving, make sure you know how to best drive your car in those terrains. Stay alert on flat prairies, which can cause fatigue easily, and try to avoid overheating your engine and brakes when you’re driving through the mountains.

Look out for wildlife.

Canada teems with wonderful wildlife, from caribou and moose to racoons and wolves. During the summer, these animals tend to be quite active, especially at dawn and dusk. Continually check the sides of the road for any wildlife to avoid a potential animal-vehicle collision.

Don’t forget an emergency kit.

You never know when you might find yourself stranded on the side of the road, so it’s best to be prepared for anything. Create an emergency kit with items like a first aid kit, flashlight, flares, jumper cables, nonperishable food items, blankets, water, and a cellphone and phone charger.

Toronto Summer Festivals You Shouldn’t Miss

Toronto Summer Festivals - Toronto, ON

Toronto is a blast during the summer with a variety of fun events to choose from. Here at Downtown Lincoln, we’ve rounded up some Toronto summer festivals that you won’t want to miss.

Redpath Waterfront Festival Toronto

If you’re looking for fun both on the land and on the water, you’ll want to plan a visit to the Redpath Waterfront Festival Toronto. This festival is back from June 29 to July 1, offering you the chance to see a fleet of majestic tall ships. Docked from Bathurst to Bay, these ships will be open for deck tours — you can even go on an evening sail.

Get Ready for Warmer Weather with These Spring Car Care Tips

Spring Car Care Tips | Downtown Lincoln | Toronto, ON

Winter in Toronto means snow, slush, and ice — all of which can do a number on your vehicle. Luckily, spring is finally here, which means the temperatures are starting to rise. If you want your Lincoln to be ready for warmer weather, consider following these spring car maintenance tips.

Get your car cleaned, inside and out. With winter weather comes salt and sand on the roads. This grit can really do a number on your car’s exterior. That’s why spring is the perfect time to give your vehicle a thorough cleaning — especially its undercarriage. Bring your vehicle in for a good wash and wax to seal it against any potential damage caused by the cold weather conditions. Get the interior detailed while you’re at it, clearing out any clutter and dirt that may have accumulated in your Lincoln’s cabin over the winter.

Bring your car in for a check-up. Routine maintenance is needed to make sure your Lincoln is in tiptop shape at all times. Bring your car in to Downtown Lincoln for an oil change and tire rotation. While it’s here, get your tire pressure, tire tread, and windshield wipers checked. This will ensure your vehicle is ready for whatever weather this spring throws at it.
