Now that the weather has warmed up and people are getting out of the house for reasons other than going to work, peoples’ minds have turned to activities like the cottage, boating and outdoor recreation. Are you stuck for ideas of where to go for fun this summer? Here are two great places you might consider for your summer vacation.

 

 

 

 

  1. Algonquin Park

    Algonquin Provincial Park is located in south-central Ontario about 300 km north of Toronto and 300 km west of Ottawa. It covers 7,630 square kilometers and is the perfect getaway for camping, backpacking biking, canoeing, swimming, fishing, wildlife watching, skiing, dog sledding or whitewater canoeing. Highway 60 is the park’s only major highway and takes you to the Visitor Centre, Museum and Exhibits. Learn about the park's natural and human history or admire the breathtaking panorama of the Algonquin landscape at the Visitor Centre. Stop at the Logging Museum and take in the story of logging from the early square timber days to the last of the great river drives. Both the Visitor’s Centre and the Logging Museum have great bookstores as well. The Art Centre, situated on a small hill next to Found Lake and a giant stone sculpture, is the perfect place to experience the connection between the art world and the natural world, while promoting, preserving and protecting the environment. If you want a good campsite along one of the canoe routes, remember to book early and prepare for a good work-out if you want to travel on a canoe portage route.

  2. Niagara-On-The-Lake

    Niagara-On-The-Lake, rich in history, was the first capital of Ontario, had the first newspaper in the province and has the oldest golf course in North America. Historical attractions include Fort George and The Lincoln & Welland Regiments Museum. You can rent a bicycle or scooter to tour the area, shop at the farmers’ markets, or search for antiques and collectibles at Lakeshore Antiques & Treasures. Of course we can’t forget the wineries; each with an individual personality, as distinctive as the wine they create. Some of the wines available at the wineries are not available anywhere else. Take a tour of the wineries and vineyards yourself or chose from a selection of site tour operators. Try out one of the culinary vacations, golf at one of the many excellent courses or take in the Shaw Theatre Festival for its 50 year anniversary. When you can’t take in everything in a day, chose from one of over 200 bed and breakfast homes and cottages. Also, don’t forget to stop at the Niagara Falls which is only half an hour away.
