The Dream Vacation You’ve Been Waiting For

Posted : February 7, 2022

Our blog is chock full of great ideas for fun things to see and do in York Durham and Headwaters. We are always adding new content and updating old posts, but sometimes you might stumble upon something from our vault. If this article has inspired you to hit the road, be sure to double-check that the featured stops in this post are still welcoming visitors.

Escaping reality has become a necessity of self-care, romance, and relaxation. With the weight of the world on your shoulders, and the instability of what you can’t control – you deserve a break! In our unprecedented new world, we have begun to rethink how we socialize, work, live, and especially travel! We know missing travel has been one thing that resonates with the majority of people, but the reality is, what we long for is rest and a break from real life; not how long the plane ride is or how packed your partner made the itinerary. There is no reason to book months ahead and stress yourself out when the oasis of relaxation and comfort you are looking for is right in your own backyard.

You can fantasize about being swept off to a beach getaway in Bora Bora, or you can make your desires to escape a reality, not only for a fraction of the price, but with the freedom to pack up and leave today. Hotels in York, Durham, and Headwaters region are a staple in our communities, housing our friends, families and tourists from around the world. While you may see hotels as a dull but necessary step in booking your vacation, the clean and relaxing amenities offered to you, can bring on a vacation in itself. If to you relaxing means swimming, hot tubing, and partying with your people, or even going to the spa and sleeping everyday until noon; hotels have what you need. They offer everything we desire to rest and recharge. Here at Visit YDH we believe in the importance of staying in our communities and most importantly supporting our local businesses. Our desire for our rest and relaxation, and the need to support our community pushes us to find businesses that do both. Places like Alabaster Acres is a glamorous glamping site nestled in the small town of Caledon Village, Ontario, offering all the fun of camping without the gruelling work that makes you question if it was even a vacation. No time is wasted, and not a finger needs to be lifted when you enter Alabaster Acres. The tent is already set up, all amenities included, that is the Alabaster guarantee to create the best experience for you (not to mention getting to hang out with the Alpacas that live there!!!).

Hotels like Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel in Richmond Hill offer amazing experiences like their 3-course dinner and stay getaway package available year-round. To safely celebrate a romantic getaway during the pandemic, couples will enjoy a pre-ordered dinner that will be delivered directly to their door through room service complete with a candle-lit table setup in their newly renovated guest room for an intimate evening. A late checkout is also included in the package for extended relaxation time. Here you can enjoy your high-class relaxation experience with world class meals delivered right to you.

With more special deals on Valentines day, like the 4-course dinner and specials on your stay, makes Sheraton Getaway the ultimate destination this Valentine’s Day weekend. Stop living in fear of flights being cancelled, or the stress of your messy house. Allow someone else to clean up and cook for you for once, and let your hotel vacation be the best Valentine you have ever had.

I know that after the last few years we all deserve a well needed break. Consider giving yourself your chance to escape! Whether it is a romantic retreat with your person, a getaway with the girls, or even giving yourself the solo vacation you have been dreaming of, you deserve it. From city, to countryside, sometimes the best option is to support local and look to your own backyard.”
