You don’t have to get on a plane to have an excellent family vacation! Ontario staycations are our favourite! Here we are sharing some recent staycation adventures that our family has been on. Hopefully these articles will help you plan your next staycation getaway with the family. 

Our family loves a long weekend getaway in Ontario and we will try almost anything once! We’ve glamped in Algonquin, splashed in the warm waters of Lake Erie and my kids have never met a hotel pool they didn’t love. 

One fact you can be sure of: we won’t share about it if we didn’t love it. Rest easy knowing I’m going to disclose the good, the bad and the ugly of any vacation destination we feature. And if you have a question that I haven’t answered in an article, feel free to reach out and ask.
