Fall Foliage Tours by Rail 

Take in Ontario's beautiful autumn colours by taking a scenic train ride. This is a great family-friendly activity that’s stress-free and relaxing for everyone. You can take a Via Rail train to Montreal or Ottawa and enjoy the captivating fall colours. You can also take the York- Durham Heritage Rail, which takes you through beautiful forests or Oakridges Moraine in a 1950’s train car!

Prince Edward County or Niagara-on-the-lake

For a fantastic weekend away, visit Niagara-on-Lake. You’ll love this area -- not only because of its wineries and restaurants, but also because of its scenic location and beautiful architecture. It’s only 1.5 hours from Toronto, making it the perfect day or weekend trip. If you’re looking for something different, with smaller crowds, consider Prince Edward County. The laid back vibe is what brings people here from all over. You can winery hop on a bicycle, eat an incredible meal right on the water at Drake Devonshire or enjoy a wood oven pizza at one of the area's many restaurants.

Go Up North and Experience the Fall Colours 

There’s no better place to relax and enjoy the fall than up North. Pamper yourself and stay at a nice resort where you can relax and enjoy the surrounding nature. There are many great resorts to stay at including Deerhurst Resort, which offers a special fall package that includes a day pass to Algonquin Park. You can go for a long (or short) hike or spend the day at the spa. Another good option is The Westin Trillium House Blue Mountain. This beautiful 4-star resort offers a ton of activities for the whole family, including a tour of the Apple Pie Trail, Georgian Hill vineyards and so much more!

Go Glamping

You can experience nature without the hassle. Go glamping! It’s what you get when you mix glamour and camping! Instead of sleeping in a sleeping bag, stay in a luxurious tent that comes equipped with a comfortable bed and washroom. This is the perfect solution for those who want to do something outdoorsy without sacrificing comfort. For a really great experience, check out Whispering Springs and Elements Luxury Tented Camp
