The kids will be fine without you for a while, the work will still be there when you get back, and your friends will understand if you unplug for a few days. There’s so much to experience in Ontario, so why not take some time for yourself and your spouse to have some quiet time together. You’ll be able to recharge, and you can come back home a better spouse, parent, sibling, child, coworker, and friend for it.
Ontario is a large province, and many people just envision a small portion of it when it comes to mind. For your couples getaway, choose a location that perhaps you haven’t visited before, or perhaps that you've not even heard of. Make this time with your partner special by doing something you’ve never done before or by recreating a magical moment from your past. Discover Ontario in a way that will put a smile on your face when you’re in the middle of laundry and the memory pops up.
Grafton's great for couples
Grafton, Ontario, is a quaint little town where you can stay at a spa resort and enjoy some lovely treatments for couples. Enjoy a savoury meal at Grafton Village Inn, once called Grover’s Tavern, which was the original name of Grafton. After lunch, take a look around at the antique shop or art gallery. You’ll enjoy the slow pace of life you get to experience while visiting.
Collingwood, Ontario, is a great place to go all year long. This resort town is known for its outdoor recreation, no matter which season you visit. During 3 of the seasons, you’ll find plenty of hiking, beaches, and caves. When winter hits, pull out your skis as Blue Mountain resort switches over from catering to weddings and banquets to catering to skiers and snowboarders.
Sudbury, the hidden gem
Sudbury, Ontario, is further north in the province and is one of those forgotten parts that people don’t necessarily think of, which is a shame really, as it has a lot to offer.
