Make a Splash

Plan a day trip that water babies will love with any of the water-filled frolics below. Can't decide on just one? View our complete collection of summer offers to supersize your day trip and splash a little longer. 

Slip & slide

Ride the slides and cool off in one of Canada’s largest wave pools at Wild Waterworks. For a little extra comfort, consider renting one of the six onsite cabanas and enjoy friendly wait service, comfortable lounge chairs, complimentary newspapers and more.

Hit the beach

Pack the sand toys and head out for a day of sun and shorelines. Stoney Creek’s Fifty Point Conservation Area, Brantford’s Pinehurst Lake Conservation Area, Hamilton’s Christie Lake and Valens Lake Conservation Areas and Burlington’s Discovery Landing are all great choices.


Explore the revitalized waterfronts of Hamilton and Burlington by bike. The Hambur Loop is a mostly off-road 50-kilometre cycling loop featuring stunning lookouts and great waterfront restaurants to fuel up at along the way.

Ride the river

Canoe, kayak or raft the Grand River. Grand Experiences, Grand River Rafting and Heritage River Canoe and Kayak Co. are all great local outfitters that will provide your group with the expert guidance and gear you need for a great trip. Prefer to experience the river in a more passive manner? Consider a Grand Dinner River Cruise.
