6ix Winter Day Trips
If you’re anything like me, you’re a sucker for beautiful winter drives, cozy restaurants, and quaint snowy villages. Even though there’s something magical about Toronto in the winter, getting out of town for the day can be an excellent way to relax and escape the holiday hustle and bustle of the big city. Here’s my list of top 6 winter day trips from the 6ix:
Whether you’re hoping to hit the slopes or seeking a relaxing day at the spa, Blue Mountain is your hot spot. Get in some skiing, take a snowboard lesson, or even try your hand at snow tubing, all before spending some time roaming the shops and restaurants in Blue Mountain Village.
Hiking isn’t just for summer fun. With snow and ice-laced trails, winter hikes can be some of the most beautiful. Get on the Bruce Trail at Pretty River Valley Provincial Park to see the Niagara Escarpment like never before.
Although it’s known for its theatre, Stratford, Ontario, has so much more to explore. From leisurely strolls by the Avon River to delicious culinary delights and quaint small-town vibes, Stratford is a quick and easy getaway from the buzz of the GTA.
Even the newest Torontonian has likely heard of Niagara wine country. Niagara-on-the-Lake boasts some of the best regional wine and is equally as trendy and fun to visit in the winter months as it is in the summer. Plus, it’s home to the Niagara Icewine Festival for three weekends in January—a must-see for all wine and winter lovers alike.
Strap on some snowshoes and take to these striking snowy trails, just one hour outside of Toronto. Christie Lake Conservation Area features a variety of trails and loops spanning from 1–10 KM in length, perfect for snowshoe-beginners and seasoned pros.
