Stay-cations!

Hey guys,

Figured I would do a little something different this time since it’s been awhile since my last update.  Seeing as this blog is about vacations and my favourite places to visit, I figured I would talk about some of my favourite things to do in Southern Ontario where I live.

The summers have and always will be famous for our family rituals.  BBQ’s, picnics, playing in the lawn sprinklers , and visiting the local tourist attractions and hotspots.

We start with the Toronto Zoo.  Every year we visit the zoo before schools are out for the summer.  Not only does this give us the chance to enjoy the zoo without a large crowd, it also seems that we see a lot more animals on display than during the hot and humid days of summer.

A season pass for Canada’s Wonderland is a must have with our family.  We certainly get our money’s worth as we visit at least 5 times every summer.

A short drive down the QEW leads us to beautiful Niagara Falls.

Niagara Falls

Where a weekend of fun is quite simply all too short to enjoy everything the falls has to offer.  Starting at Lundy’s Lane where the fun houses, haunted houses, arcades, restaurants and countless other activities await.  Making our way to the Falls down Clifton Hill while enjoying some fresh fudge or ice cream while we take in the beauty of a natural wonder of the world.

Darien Lake in Western New York is another spot we like to venture out to and enjoy the roller coasters and large crowds!!

Ending off our family summers are usually always the same way.  With a trip to the CNE for cotton candy and carny rides!!!!!

There is so much to do we are truly lucky to live in such a great part of the world.  That doesn’t mean that the rest of this world isn’t ours to explore as well.  This September we will be heading to Orlando, Florida for a visit to the house of mouse…I can’t …..wait!!!
