10 Day Trips From Toronto

Summer is almost over. School is going to start soon and I bet, no students are looking forward to it, but parents are! 😉

So, how’s your summer so far? Have you done enough things to make this summer memorable or you’re just chillin’ at the library or in front of your computer? Have you been to the beach or have visited a sunflower farm? Have you tried tubing at the river? Or have joined a marathon or warrior dash?

Well, I’ve done some things this year which I’ve never done before. And yeah, I’ve also done some things I’ve already done, things that become my summer tradition, like going to New York? 😉

Toronto has a lot of things to do in summer—but they have become repetitive to me. Festivals (cultural, beer, food, music), parades, etc. are almost similar from last year or a year before. There’s nothing wrong with these festivals, of course, but I’d like you to take a day trip from Toronto, to get away from the City of Smog.

So, if you haven’t done much about your summer, these 10 day trips from Toronto are good choices to start with. These day trips are family-friendly, of course! 😉

These day trips are at least 3-4 hours drive (one way) from Toronto.

1. Experience Tubing at Elora Gorge Grand River
This is just an hour and a half drive from Toronto. It’s an awesome way to spend the last days of summer! See my experience here.

2. Visit a Sunflower Farm
There are two sunflower farms that I know of: Sunflower Farm in Hamilton and in Innisfil. Both can be reached within 1-1 .5 hours drive from Toronto.

3. Stroll Around a Lavender Farm
The farm is in Milton. It’s less than an hour drive from T-Dot.

4. Take a Dip at Albion Falls
Hamilton is the City of Waterfalls. The most stunning of all is the Albion Falls!

5. See Niagara Falls
This is, of course, very classic. There’s always things to do in Niagara. It’s my summer tradition to go there every year! It’s an hour and a half drive.

6. Go Biking Wine Tasting at Niagara By The Lake
Since you’re going to Niagara Falls, then, you better pass Niagara by the Lake for wine tasting. If you have time, go biking.

7. Go Island Hopping at A Thousand Islands
Go early because this is a three-hour drive (one way) to Kingston. You can’t literally go island hopping but you go on a boat tour that goes around the Canadian and American side of the lake, passing through the Millionaire’s Row where million dollar houses compete for the stunning lake view.

8. Get Your Tan at Sandbanks Beach
After your A Thousand Islands Tour (before noon), drive to Sandbanks Beach. Get your tan and watch an amazing sunset! There’s a campground nearby should you want to stay for a night.

9. Take a Selfie in Mars
Ok, not exactly the planet Mars but it looks like one. Cheltenham Badlands is red. 😉 It’s less than an hour from the city. Go there in the morning so, you’ll be alone in your photos. 🙂

10. Reflect at Martyrs’ Shrine
Ok, this is for those who are religious. You can reflect or relax here. The Shrine has green surroundings perfect for reflection! This place in Midland is a really nice place of worship. Pope John Paul II visited this small chapel which is an hour and a half drive.
