There are many locations in and around Ontario to plan a relaxing weekend getaway. The province is full of great day attractions, places to explore, and things to experience.
No matter who you are, there is a retreat for everyone. This article shares three popular places to consider for your next getaway in Ontario.
Visitors who are thinking about a more permanent stay in Ontario should look into Halton Hills, which is located in Southern Ontario near Toronto and Lake Ontario. Living in Halton Hills provides easy access to Canada’s largest metropolis while being able to enjoy the charms of small-town life.
Take a trip around Blue Mountain Village, which is home to a plethora of fantastic eateries and lovely stores. While you’re there, visit Northwinds Brewhouse, a Collingwood brewery that recently established a site there and serves excellent food (and beer).
If you’re planning a winter vacation, keep in mind that Blue Mountain is one of the province’s most popular ski resorts. The resort features exquisite room accommodations such as a lovely log cabin facing a private, spring-fed pond that is perfect for any getaway. All you need to do is bring your own bedding and towels, and you’ll have a fantastic getaway in Collingwood!
Though Niagara Falls may be a cliché romantic destination, it has an attraction that keeps people coming back. Clifton Hill’s Vegas-style vibes may not scream romance, but there are lots of ways to spice up your romantic holiday in Niagara Falls.
Of course, the wine country of Niagara-on-the-Lake is only a short distance away. Take a stroll through scenic vineyards and sample some of the province’s best wines. This isn’t a summer-only activity either. Niagara is the world’s leading icewine producer. There’s even a whole festival dedicated to icewine.
Prince Edward County
The ever-lovely Prince Edward County is one of the many picturesque destinations in South Eastern Ontario. The area boasts excellent wineries, breathtaking landscapes, and a thriving arts and culture scene.
Sandbanks Provincial Park is a must-see on your trip to Prince Edward County if you want to have some fun in the sun. The world’s largest baymouth barrier dune formation is home to three wide beaches.
Take a stroll along one of the park’s beautiful walking routes or simply rest in the sun for the afternoon. If you’re searching for a romantic vista to end the day, it also boasts some spectacular sunsets.
These are just three options for your next getaway. Schedule your weekend away from the stresses of work and other obligations, and treat yourself to a little fun and relaxation. You’ll be glad that you did.
