Do you have a summer vacation plan? Or are you still on the fence about where you’re going? In our household we are just starting to see our summer vacation plans take shape. Happy to stick close to home in the summer, we’re planning several road trips within our home province of Ontario this year. While that might not sound very exotic, it’s incredible what you can find in your own backyard when you look around. In fact, I think summer is the perfect time for many of us to embrace the near and dear while the weather is here. Related: I am so getting an award for my poetry.
Tentatively this is what we’re looking at for our summer vacation:
Forty-three years in this province and I am ashamed to admit that I have never been to Muskoka. Never. I think it’s time.
That’s right, my hometown. We have guests coming to our house this summer and it would be a crime not to show them around the best city in Canada. Here are 5 Can’t Miss Events in Ottawa this summer.
Sault Ste. Marie
We have a wedding in the Sault this summer and it’s been over 20 years since I’ve last been there. While there we plan on checking out the Agawa Canyon!
While not actually part of our province, I like to think we’re close enough in Ottawa that it counts. I’m thinking trips to Lafleche Caves and Granby Zoo with the kids should round out the summer nicely. Also, I’ve been told my one little trip to Montreal does not count, so perhaps a romantic getaway with my husband is in order.
But enough about me? What about YOU? Do you know where you’re taking your summer vacation? If you’re still not sure, you must check out the ideas that Taking the Kids has put together! They’ve covered absolutely every type of escape you could possibly want to take from beach vacations to city escapes and from the great outdoors to theme parks. Prepare to be inspired.
