If you’re hoping to save some money on gas while still enjoying your summer, we’ve got you covered. Check out these exciting local getaways that aren’t too far from downtown Toronto!


This adorable town is great for city dwellers and outdoor enthusiasts. The historic Metcalfe Street hosts a variety of funs shops while the Elora Gorge is ready for exploration. Wind down at night by sitting on a restaurant or spa patio that overlooks the Grand River.


If you’re trying to get away from all of the bustling city sounds, head to Muskoka. Here, you’ll find a serene area with tall trees, beautiful parks, and plenty of places to hike or camp. Some creature comforts are still nearby, though, like the local bakery and a performance venue with incredible musical acts.


Speaking of entertainment, you’ll want to visit Stratford for a ton of culture. This town is home to many theater productions and even hosts its annual Stratford Festival. You’ll find all kinds of luxury here as well, like bed and breakfast spots and top chefs.
