It’s no surprise – The Canadian dollar stinks. Gone are the at-par days with the U.S. greenback, making overall travel more expensive (did you know airlines purchase fuel in U.S. dollars?). But with Canada turning 150 this year, the timing is perfect to stay in your own backyard to celebrate what this great country has to offer. In the Toronto area alone, there’s plenty of hidden gems to last a lifetime. When was the last time you went ice-fishing or even took the time to learn about your region’s history (did I mention Canada’s turning 150?)?
So before you decide that things aren’t exotic enough for you in Toronto, think again. Below are some hidden gems of York Region (just north of Toronto) with all of it doable over the course of a couple days.
What’s a vacation without a little spa time? The spa at Briar’s Resort is one of the most luxurious of the region providing services ranging from massages, hydrotherapies, and hand/foot treatments. For a real treat, try the Mokkaccino Body Wrap!
…heck, just stay the night!
Gong to the Briar’s Resort only for the Spa is too much of a tease! Stay the night and enjoy one of the best resorts in Ontario with fine dining, luxury pool area, numerous fireplaces (too many to count!), and lots of historic items from around the world showcased throughout the grounds.
