Westfield Heritage Village is hosting “Maple Syrup Season” on select days in March. We’ve got two demonstration sites, a Maple Trivia Trail, and take-out pancakes from the St. George Lions Club. Visitors will also be able to buy maple treats from the General Store and Gift Shop.

March break Things To Do Indoors
Joseph Brant Museum has new exhibits, perfect for a spectrum of ages, plus a brand new Children’s Gallery. We visited with young kids and grandparents, and everyone had rave reviews.
Young children will absolutely love a visit to The Family Room in Waterdown because they get to play with friends, create works of art and use their imaginations! There is even an infant area to make sure the littlest ones stay safe.
Royal Botanical Gardens’ winter exhibit Frogs! is fabulous for families. We loved the live show where you saw frogs and reptiles up close. The exhibits include unique creatures from turtles to snakes in addition to so many frogs. Pre-book your visit.
Dress in your brightest whites and take the kids for a round of glow-in-the-dark mini golf here. Always a great idea if you have tweens and teens looking for March Break things to do.
Wander through the Art Gallery of Hamilton – especially the 2nd floor – and let your kids enjoy a feast for the eyes!
Enjoy a mini-vacation with tropical temperatures when you catch the beauty and wonder that is the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory.
