The top 10 fall getaways from Toronto
Fall getaways from Toronto will let you escape from the city to enjoy the spectacular colours and flavours of what is arguably the greatest season of the year. These trips will take you on rustic retreats and stunning hikes. And they'll all make you understand why Anne Shirley said, "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."
Here are my picks for fall getaways from Toronto.
Spend a night (or two or three) in a rustic cabin by the lake or in the woods. Curl up by the fire in a warm blanket, perhaps with a hot chocolate or hot toddy to keep you warm.
Indulge in the bounty of Prince Edward County. Follow the Taste Trail to treat you belly to a day filled with farm fresh eats and artisanal products. You can even stay at a winery as they crush the grapes for the year.
Cottages are great and all, but once it's too cold to swim, it's nice to enjoy all that Muskoka has to offer at a resort. There's no better option than Deerhurst when it comes to the range of activities offered, from golf to ATV riding to treetop trekking and much more.
Take a trip out to our province's most famous provincial park. Book a camp site, or better yet, rent out a rustic old ranger cabin or a yurt, both of which will provide just a bit more comfort and warmth than a tent.
Lake Placid is much more than the host of the 1980 Olympics. This spot in the Adirondacks isn't too far from Toronto and features more than just a man-eating crocodile. (And if you're into, you should ride on the Olympic bobsled run at Whiteface Mountain.)
Blue Mountain is fun even without snow! This Ontario ski hill is the perfect spot to go mountain biking Its trail are open through to the end of Thanksgiving weekend.
You might have to travel super far north to see the Aurora Borealis. But if you're looking to do some star gazing, head to the Torrance Barrens Dark-Sky Preserve near Gravenhurst.
The cruise through the Thousand Islands is a dream during the fall. It might be chilly on deck, but you'll be treated to a show filled with colourful trees and magnificent island homes.
