Everyone shout it together: ROAD TRIP!!! Be the ultimate cool parent and take your kids on a memorable and fun road trip through Ontario’s Central Counties. There’s a ton to see and do by day and great places to stay for the whole family by night. Book off a weekend and embark on an adventure with your kids that they will never forget. Ontario’s Central Counties has limitless road trip possibilities and it is easier than ever to put together the perfect route that works for you.
First of all, pick which region you would like to explore. There is Headwaters, York, and Durham, all with fun-filled activities waiting to be discovered. Check out Island Lake Conservation Area in The Hills of Headwaters if you’re looking to get outside and be active. You may even catch an animal sighting or two with the extensive wildlife in the area. Or if your family really wants to get up close and personal with animals, start your trip with the Bowmanville Zoological Park in Durham. Children can learn more about their favourite creatures and you can feel like a kid again! Each region holds something for everyone to enjoy. Pick a region and start exploring.
Next, choose the arrival and departure date of your trip to unveil which wondrous events you can attend. The Colours of Fall Concert is in Aurora Town Park on October 9th and is sure to bring the family together over live entertainment and pumpkin carving. Impress your kids with your spookiest pumpkin creation ever! Translate those carving skills in the Magic in Wood Competition and Show being held on October 18th and 19th in Pickering. There are workshops with skilled instructors so the whole family can learn together. Everyone is sure to have a blast and learn something new along the way!
Finally, create a hotel package that best suits you. You will definitely need some well-deserved rest after long filled days of family fun and adventure. We customize your package to give you the best value possible. Perhaps pick a hotel with a pool for the kids and a hot tub for you. Now we’re talking. Kids always love staying in a hotel. It just makes the road trip that much better!
So pick a region, choose some events, and create a hotel package to put together the ultimate road trip for your kids this weekend. This is guaranteed to be one they will never forget.
