Weekend getaways are so refreshing. There’s nothing like a change of pace, the chance to stretch your legs, and do something different. I had a break recently at a wonderful Kawarthas cottage on a trip with the impressive GMC Sierra Denali, and it was just what my family and I needed.
This Friday, June 11, Ontario will take the first step to reopening the province as more than 60% of adults have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. It’s an important step that opens up a lot of opportunities for Ontarions, including some options for travel within the province.
There is nothing like looking up at the night sky, and seeing all the stars. It’s an awe-inspiring view, especially for those of us living in the city, and it’s not always a view we can enjoy because of light pollution.
What did you expect this year? Not this, I imagine, and if you were planning a holiday, there’s certainly some good news ahead, but there’s also a new reality we need to embrace.
Ontario Parks offer some of the best outdoor experiences in the province, and I can’t get enough of them, especially in the summer. My wife and I have stayed at most of the parks in southern Ontario, and one favourite is Bon Echo Provincial Park.
The skating trail at Arrowhead Provincial Park should be one of your bucket list travel plans this winter. There is really nothing like skating through the forest, and on special Fire and Ice nights at the park, you can skate under the stars, with the trail lit by torches.
One of my favourite events in southwestern Ontario returns on Saturday, September 21 at Blue Mountain Village, and there will be beer, food, and fantastic festivities once again at Creemore Springs’ Oktoberfest at Blue.
If I had the chance, some day I would love to spend the summer at a cabin or in an RV somewhere. Every year I look forward to summer vacation, and nothing really beats getting out of the city for a few days to one of Ontario’s incredible forests, nestled along a lake somewhere.
My family has been dreaming of an RV adventure for a few years, so when I had the chance to check out the Toronto RV show today, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to do a little research and find out a bit more about all of the vehicle options for getaways.
