As the end of winter quickly approaches, everyone is busy getting their summer bodies ready and planning their vacation getaways. But why wait for hot, sunny days to take a little time off? Here are 6 bae-cations you can try this spring, without even having to leave Ontario.
1. Blue mountain / Scandinavian Spa
Why not hop in your car and drive for a couple hours to a resort that makes you forget that you are still in the country? There are many activities that you and your bae can do there. For example; mini putting, zip lining, tree top trekking, riding through the mountain, or even enjoying the outdoor oasis that is Scandinave Spa.
2. Lake Muskoka
What’s better than being near a quiet beach, waking up to the sound of loons, and spending quality time with your significant other? Lake Muskoka has many attractions that will have you wishing you never had to leave. The most famous attractions include: horse back riding, airplane tours, water sports, and an escape room. If you’re someone like me who has never tried water skiing, this would be a great place to learn as well as partake in other new experiences. On your way out, don’t forget to check out the art gallery and farmer’s market.
3. Niagara Falls
Did someone just say Niagara falls? Well there’s lots to do there! For starters, going on a night stroll to watch the falls change colours. You could even take a romantic picture there. Niagara falls offers an adventure pass that allows you and your significant other to check off experiences that may be on your bucket list. For example: The Maid of the Mist. What’s better than getting up close and personal with the falls. The Maid of the Mist leads you on an amazing boat tour that includes taking you through the falls. Another fun adventure to cross off the list would be the Sky Wheel. Why not soar 175 feet above the falls and experience the breathtakingly beautiful views from up above? This is the ultimate experience of a lifetime!
4. 5 Drive- In
Most people have gone to a movie theater at least once in their lifetime… but have you ever been to one that's outside? Well, now Is your chance! An affordable movie, in the comfort of your own car, and you can bring your pet? That’s a sweet deal. The Oakville 5 drive in lets you do it all. So why not take your lover and your pet on a little road trip to the movies?
5. Elora Gorge
The breathtaking views of the Elora Gorge atmosphere is one to checkout.
If you and your significant other are feeling adventurous and want to be close up to the clouds, then you might want to check out the hot air balloon rides that shows you the scenery of Southern Ont. The limestone cliffs and caves as well as tubing down the grand river are key features too.
6. Rattlesnake point
Bringing things closer to home now, have you ever heard of Rattlesnake Point? Rattlesnake point is located in the Milton area and offers a variety of outdoor activities. If you’re looking to go hiking, rock climbing, axe throwing, or maybe even geocaching (scavenger hunt), then why not go the whole mile and experience a night camping around the fire pit and cuddling up with your loved one? Sounds great to me!
