All this hot weather we’ve been enjoying lately has me thinking about our summer plans. While Ian and I don’t like to take big trips in the summer (we prefer to travel in the off-season to avoid crowds), we do like to fill our summer weekends with fun activities. A friend put this up on Facebook yesterday: the Top 10 One-Day Road Trips from Toronto.
How cool are some of these? Despite the obvious choices (Collingwood, Muskoka), there are some other, closer alternatives. I went to Belfountain when I was a teenager – I remember getting an ice cream and playing in a stream. And I’ve always wanted to go to Picton – I hear it’s foodie heaven out there in Prince Edward County. The only thing I see missing from this list is Creemore – it’s a great day’s drive from the city, and you can visit the brewery and poke around in the small town. The Mad River Tea House isn’t there anymore though – they moved to Collingwood.
