Sep 25 2020, 12:41 pm

It’s no surprise. People love Schitt’s Creek. 

The Canadian sitcom dominated the Emmys on Sunday night, sweeping the comedy category and setting a new record for the most wins in a single season for a comedy series.

The cast and crew took home the “Outstanding Comedy Series” award, a first for any Canadian show and the first comedy or drama show to ever sweep all four acting categories too.

And while it’s a great way to end a celebrated show, Schitt’s Creek is sadly over.

But, fans can rejoice because you can get ready to step foot in the show’s iconic film locations throughout Ontario.

Check out the top 7 Schitt’s Creek locations near Toronto you need to explore right now.

Goodwood

It’s located less than an hour north of Toronto in Uxbridge, with a population of 663, and was chosen to be the main set of Schitt’s Creek.

Around 30 towns throughout Ontario were sourced and considered for the position of the main filming location before Goodwood was chosen.

The town is home to locations such as Bob’s Garage, Café Tropical, Rose Apothecary, Mayor Roland Schitt’s and wife, Jocelyn’s, house and the Schitt’s Creek Town Hall.

Many of the buildings are privately owned, so Schitt’s Creek fans will have to capture the perfect shot of the exterior of the building. Except for Rose Apothecary, which is Romni Wools Goodwood and to date sells the most amazing variety of wools and handcrafted goods including clothing, accessories, and gifts.

The Rosebud Motel

You can do a wine tasting here and take some fruit wine to go, but you won’t find a bottle of Moira Rosé, unfortunately.

The Blous Barn is located on the main street of Unionville, and this is where David worked during Season 2.

The swooniest of all locations, Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area is where David Rose and Patrick Brewer got engaged in Season 5.

Elbridge Manor, which is actually Graydon Manor Hall in real life, is where many Torontonians book their own weddings.

It’s a stunning property with many large gardens and is centrally located, making it a prime wedding spot and perfect for photos.

However, due to inclement weather, David Rose and Patrick Brewer had to make other arrangements to get married at Schitt’s Creek Town Hall, officiated by Moira Rose.
