Fun with the Family
Spring is here, and it’s a fantastic opportunity to get away for a weekend with the family before the kids head off to summer programs, and the season kicks in at full-speed. Pack a picnic and head to a beach in Central Ontario, or plan a “stay-cation” in your own city. We’ve got great family-friendly hotels that are perfect for you!
Here are some resorts around the province to get you going:
Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park and Camp Resort (GTA)
Shamrock Lodge (Central Ontario)
Spend the night in a Canadian Habitat—a spacious, full-frame camping shelter. The next morning, head over to Canada’s Wonderland for some amusement park thrills.
Relax with the all-inclusive packages, and supervised children’s programming. Go sailing, kayaking, water-tubing and more.
Horseshoe Resort (Central Ontario)
Rock Glen Family Resort (Southwestern Ontario)
Whether you’re interested in golfing, hiking, off-road adventures, or treetop trekking, you can find amazing activities here.
A year-round RV resort overlooking Rock Glen Falls, with cabins to rent as well. Have fun mini-golfing, swimming in the saltwater pools, or goofing around on the Splash Pad.
Take advantage of the time you have with your kids, and plan a getaway this spring. For more great family resorts, visit our Hotels, Resorts & Spas category
