With so many exciting outdoor adventures right in our own backyard, why let this cold discourage you from having fun! Bundle up and book yourself a weekend getaway at one of these top 4 winter travel destinations…
The town of St. Jacob’s is a popular summer destination but the winter themed activities during Maple Sugar Rush are not to be missed. Enjoy horse-drawn sleigh rides, sample homemade edibles at St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market and get ready to indulge in lots of maple syrup! My son who is obsessed with trains also loves the Aberfoyle Model Railway! Stay at the historic Walper Boutique Hotel in downtown Waterloo.
‘Tis the season to go dashing through the snow, on a one horse open sleigh! Hit up the nation’s capital and take an old fashioned sleigh ride through Ottawa’s Greenbelt or enjoy the festivities during Ottawa’s Winterlude festival. Rest up at Hotel Indigo Ottawa Downtown City Centre.
The Niagara region is well known for its wine tours but wine appreciation doesn’t have to stop when the snow flurries arrive. The Niagara Icewine Festival is an exciting celebration of food and flavours. After a fun night of culinary and wine, enjoy a cozy stay at the Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel. Next day embrace your inner child and hit up the Waves Indoor Waterpark.
Our great lakes are just as great in the winter! Visit Sudbury to ice skate around the perimeter of Ramsey Lake, or give ice fishing a try at one of the 330 freshwater lakes in the Greater Sudbury area. Love adrenaline? Rev your snowmobiling engine for some back country adventures. End the day defrosting and relaxing at the Holiday Inn Sudbury.
