Top Stops for Your Summer Road Trip

Have you been thinking about taking your family on a road trip this summer? No matter what direction you’re heading, Ontario has a lot to offer. It’s ‘Yours to Discover’ after all, so why not make the most of it?

Here are some of the province’s can’t-miss summer stops:

Niagara Region

Ontario’s very own wine capital! The Niagara Region has a little something for everyone, whether it’s the beautiful falls, the excellent day hikes, the downtown action, or cycling through the countryside. You can please the whole family at this stop!


Home to the Flowerpot Islands and a real-life grotto, this part of the Bruce Peninsula is a must-do for every Ontarian. One look at the turquoise-blue waters of the Georgian Bay and you’ll know why! Plus, if you have your Canada 150 parks pass from Parks Canada, you can get into Cyprus Lake National Park for free.

Sauble Beach

If your ideal summer day is camping out in the sand under an umbrella, then Sauble Beach is the place for you! With sandy shoreline as far as the eye can see, this Lake Huron locale is a lively area full of cute shops, great food, and tons of fun!


Feel like getting into cottage country? Head up to Muskoka! With so many lakes, islands, and greenery, this popular summer destination will have you feeling like you’re worlds away. Isn’t that what we’re looking for in a vacation?

Elora Gorge

If you’re up for a little adventure, the Elora Gorge – Grand River Conservation Area has an excellent river for tubing. Bring your own lifejackets, helmets, and water shoes, or rent them onsite for a fun, do-it-yourself whitewater experience.

Point Pelee

At the southernmost tip of the province, Point Pelee is a hotspot for migratory birds and Monarch Butterflies. Paddle through the marshy wetlands, stroll down the boardwalks, or bask on the beach at the country’s smallest national park. It’s also free this year with your Canada 150 parks pass!
