Now that the weather’s getting better and the roads are clear, it’s the perfect time to celebrate with a road trip! Pile your friends into a vehicle and check out some of these great Ontario locations!
You don’t have to go to the ocean to have fun on a beautiful, sandy beach! Prince Edward County boasts Sandbanks Provincial Park, home to the world’s largest freshwater sandbar, three huge sandy beaches, four campgrounds and incredible hiking.
Tim Horton’s is a Canadian institution – but it wasn’t always this way! Back in 1964, it was just a single store opened by a hockey player and a store manager, a few coffee pots, a deep fryer and a dream. But did you know that the original store is still open, serving Timbits, bagels and double doubles to this day? Why not go on a pilgrimage to Hamilton Ontario to have a sandwich in the birthplace of this beacon of Canadian identity?
A short drive from Barrie, Oro-Medente is a township and a portal into natural beauty. The home of Horseshoe Resort, this ski town is fun all year around! Whether you’re want to zipline, mountain bike, or just walk in natural splendour, Oro-Medente has plenty to see and do.
More incredible camping! Awenda is located on the shores of Georgian Bay, has six campgrounds and five beaches, hours upon hours worth of hiking trails, and even an ancient dune system that scholars estimate is over 11,000 years old! Go for a beautiful walk and get a taste of pre-history!
Stratford-upon-Avon is synonymous with Shakespeare! The name of his birthplace in England, it is also an Ontario town with some of the best theatre in the country! The Stratford Festival runs from April to October, so there is always a great play to see during the summer!
Ontario is the ideal place to travel by car – with plenty of varied landscapes and destinations all over Upper Canada, there’s always something to see and do!
