Summer vacation looks a bit different this year so I'm helping you embrace the STAY-cation!

We're all trying to stay closer to home this year and while that might mean your typical summer vacation was canceled, it doesn't mean there's no way to enjoy the summer. So, I've compiled a list of staycation spots within driving distance of Toronto. Stay safe and enjoy! 

1. Niagara Falls

"Open 365 days a year, Niagara Falls State Park has awe-inspiring scenery! It also features thrilling attractions, interactive exhibits, miles of hiking trails, and delectable dining options in a family-friendly environment. It's an adventure-packed experience! No passport is needed to experience an unforgettable and breathtaking Niagara Falls vacation."

2. Toronto's CN Tower

"Defining the Toronto skyline at 553.33m (1,815ft 5in) the CN Tower is Canada's most recognizable and celebrated icon. The CN Tower is an internationally renowned architectural triumph, an engineering Wonder of the Modern World, world-class entertainment and dining destination and a must see for anyone visiting Toronto. Each year, over 1.9 million people visit Canada’s National Tower to take in the breathtaking views and enjoy all the CN Tower has to offer." New Ripley's Aquarium now at the base of the tower!!

3. Parliament Hill in Ottawa

"Parliament Hill, colloquially known as The Hill, is an area of Crown land on the southern banks of the Ottawa River in downtown Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Its Gothic revival suite of buildings is the home of the Parliament of Canada and has architectural elements of national symbolic importance."

Staying Home Instead?

Luckily there are lots of ways to still enjoy the summer while staying safe.

4. Ontario's Provincial and National Parks

"Ontario is home to an incredible landscape of pristine lakes, rivers, and forests, which are made easily accessible by the provincial and national parks spread across the province."

5. Royal Ontario Museum (ROM)

"Among the top 10 cultural institutions in North America, Canada’s largest and most comprehensive museum is home to a world-class collection of 13 million artworks, cultural objects and natural history specimens, featured in 40 gallery and exhibition spaces. As the country’s preeminent field research institute and an international leader in new discoveries, the ROM plays a vital role in advancing our understanding of the artistic, cultural and natural world. Combining its original heritage architecture with the contemporary Daniel Libeskind-designed Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, the ROM serves as a national landmark, and a dynamic cultural destination in the heart of Toronto for all to enjoy."

6. Canada's Wonderland

"Spend your summer at Canada's premier amusement park! There will be thrills, splashes & more at Canada's Wonderland."

7. Muskoka and Cottage Country

"Muskoka, Ontario, Canada – two hours north of Toronto has been named one of the best places to visit in Canada time and time again. Our quaint and charming region affectionately known as Canada’s cottage country has received some tremendous recognition over the years as one of Canada’s top vacation spots, and one of the top vacation spots in the world!"
