A tropical trip south isn’t in the cards this winter, but with a little creativity, there are still some fun ways to slip away from Ontario’s sub-zero temperatures. Here are a few ideas to help you crank up the cozy quotient this winter while supporting Ontario businesses at the same time.

Have a Decadent At-Home Movie Night

Ridge Road Winery’s Wine and Movie Night package delivers some serious containment entertainment! The package includes two bottles of wine, a fantastic selection of gourmet snacks and even a popcorn bucket and chip clip! Get complete details here.

Get Pampered At The Spa

Hamilton’s Towneplace Suites has spa day packages for one and two people that include breakfast, lunch, and a choice of services at one of Hamilton’s most-beloved Aveda spas. Get complete details here.

Bunk Up At A Boutique Hotel

Head to Paris for a beautiful change of scenery at the Arlington Hotel, a hotel that’s older than Canada! For a breath of fresh air, pair your weekend stay with a guided hike through the Nith River Forest, which includes a warm campfire lunch of Maple Chili cooked over an open campfire that you helped build.

Shake Up A Killer Cocktail Hour

Collective Arts’ new Lavender and Juniper Cocktail Kit is the next best thing to sitting at a poolside bar, and there’s never a lineup! The kit includes a bottle of Lavender and Juniper Gin, Fever Tree mixers, glasses, garnish and even a snack to pair with your drink. Get complete details here.

We Look Forward To Seeing You Safely

As the COVID-19 situation in Ontario continues to change, a minute or two of extra planning is an important step in ensuring hiccup-free adventures. Follow the latest travel guidelines for your community and any communities you plan to visit. Check with the places you plan to go to in advance to see if reservations or activity bookings are required. On the day of your trip, do a quick check to verify the places on your agenda are open and serving visitors in the way you’re expecting. When visiting, please follow all social distancing and safety guidelines to protect yourself and others.
