Winter Stargazer

SNOW is an unbelievably beautiful substance!  It’s no wonder that #WetheNorth have learned to embrace snow as a frozen playground. Carving up this blanket of white brings out the playful kid out in all of us!  Here are some family-friendly activities for intrepid cold-weather observers and couch-loving, fireside frozen alike

When the winter sunsets overlooking Lake Simcoe are so fabulous at your accommodation, you name a room after it! The ‘Winter Room’ at Moorelands Station B & B is family ready to enjoy board games and giggles by the fire with a cuppa hot cocoa or study the stars together from the outdoor hot tub.

Whether you’re 9- or 90-years old, nearby Floyd Hales Fish Huts will outfit you with everything your family needs for your ice fishing excursion. Don’t forget to bring in warm clothes, and a bag to bring your catch home in.

Whether you walk, hike, cross-country ski, snowshoe, or winter bird watch, nearby Beaver River Wetland Trail is part of The Great Trail that stretches across Canada. Fun fact: the trail is built upon the flat, wide bed of the historic Toronto and Nipissing Railway (T&NR) dating back to the late 1800’s when it supplied the Toronto Distillery District with wood and wheat.
