light show christmas toronto

This town near Toronto is about to become a magical winter wonderland

Start planning your holiday season road trip ASAP because there are lots of places to visit this year. From quaint Christmas markets to stunning big budget light shows, there's lots to see and do both in Toronto and all over southern Ontario.

If you want to get out of town for a little bit, consider heading to Cobourg. This town, located between Belleville and Oshawa, is right on the shores of Lake Ontario. And for the holiday season, it hosts Christmas Magic, which transforms its waterfront park into a winter wonderland with more than 100,000 LED lights.

This event runs from November 25, 2016 to January 4, 2017, so you have lots of time to check it out. There's lots to do in Cobourg if you decide to take the drive out, including craft breweries, restaurants and cute inns and hotels.
