With the Civic Holiday just around the corner, it’s time to begin planning for an Ontario road trip getaway for you and your significant other.

 

There are tons of great destinations all over the province, with many specifically geared towards couples.  Here are some of the best choices below:

 

NIAGARA FALLS

 

Niagara Falls is a great road trip destination for couples of all ages because there are so many things to do. Relax at the spa, tour buses, helicopter rides, museums, wine tours, or just stare in awe at the beautiful falls themselves.

 

Websites such as Groupon offer cheap hotel options for couples, so you won’t have to worry about breaking the bank on your weekend getaway.

 

COLLINGWOOD

 

Collingwood offers several romantic hotel destinations, such as Cranberry Golf Resort, Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain, and Willow Trace Bed and Breakfast.

 

While all places are slightly different, many offer the same general offerings, such as a pool and romantic dining options, and some even include spa packages.

 

RENT A COTTAGE IN MUSKOKA

 

There are few things more relaxing than sitting back and enjoying the beautiful weather up North. Go canoeing, take a hike, take a boat ride or just relax in the water and enjoy the sun.

 

There are obviously plenty of cottages throughout Ontario, but you can never go wrong renting one in Muskoka.

 

However, renting a cottage for two could be a little pricey, particularly on a long weekend. If you’re looking to find something more affordable, consider using Airbnb rather than renting outright.

 

ELORA

 

Just because it’s a small town doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to do.  If you’re looking for a little excitement, try tubing or zip lining to get the blood pumping.

 

If heights or water aren’t your cup of tea, you can spend the day at the spa or check out the nearby farmer’s market.

 

PRINCE EDWARD COUNTRY WINE TOUR

 

Spend a weekend at the Huff Estates Winery and Inn to check out some of the best tasting tours in the province.

 

Then, after spending the entire day walking and taste-testing, you can relax by the patio or take a dip in the pool to cool off at night.

 

HOCKLEY VALLEY RESORT

 

Located just outside of Orangeville, Hockey Valley Resort is one of the more relaxing and romantic getaways available in Ontario.

 

Their “Love Life” package includes a full buffet breakfast, 3-course dinner, a bottle of wine, and a $100 spa credit.

 

TORONTO

 

Sure, it’s not the most creative option, but there are still tons of fun things to do in Toronto. You could take in a play, visit the aquarium, catch a baseball game, relax in the park, or just tour the city.

 

With plenty of hotels and dinner options available throughout Toronto, you should have no issue finding something that fits your needs.
