What are YOU going to do this weekend?            May 3, 2012
Getaways Don't Have to be Far Away!

Whether you’re looking for a romantic tryst, a family mini-vacation or a getaway with friends, you won’t have to go far to find what you are looking for.

Spring offers a whole host of activities and adventures. With the flowers blooming and the sun shining, it’s the perfect time to get closer to nature and explore the outdoors.  This all-inclusive resort is perfect for an active family getaway or a little pampering with just the girls.

Looking for a romantic getaway?  Cuddle up in a feather-top bed, get a spa treatment, but don’t forget about an afternoon wine & cheese from the area’s finest wineries.

Why not send the whole family to college this year?  Comfortable apartments and dormitory style residences, with complimentary breakfast, offer an affordable way for the whole family to have a break from home and explore a new area of Ontario. Over 14 locations across the province. May to August only.

Are rustic cabins at the edge of a tranquil lake more your style? Read, swim, fish, explore, and let the magic of the wild feed your soul. With 500 acres of woodland and 16,000 Showy Lady Slipper Orchids, this is Canada the beautiful.

Pack up your bag for a weekend or a week, pick a getaway that strikes your fancy, and discover a new part of Ontario.  From spas, to resorts, to cozy B&B’s, Ontario has the perfect place to recharge.
