Parents, look no further when planning to visit Ontario attractions, kids events and festivals, kids activities and the family vacation.

For families and kids of all ages heading north to cottage country and resort area destinations,  ONTARIO FAMILY TRAVEL NORTH OF TORONTO can be your best source for family getaway or day trip fun.   


Weekend warriors and parents looking for weekday toddler fun should read this article listing inspirational fall activity suggestions that both kids and parents will enjoy. Fall in areas north of Toronto offer a cool connection to nature and culture in perhaps Mother's Nature's greatest outdoor show of the year - leaf colour change! 


Without a doubt a family getaway can be a lot calmer when the summer crowds have ebbed.  For some families, the summer madness and heat can be too much. Fall getaways are just as special though with the fall colours and beautiful mild temps perfect for outdoor fun and checking out attractions and other fun kids activities. 


There is certainly much to be grateful for in resort destinations north of Toronto. Fall colours and family events and activities make the perfect weekend for families looking to escape the city or explore a new community. Day trips or weekend getaways are an excellent idea to spend time together as a family on the long weekend and Thanksgiving holiday!  



Great food, exciting rides and games and only the best of this growing season's harvest! Fall Fairs create wonderful memories for all family members and a great way to spend a sunny Fall weekend as a family. A Fall Fair is certainly a Fall Family Tradition in our books!
