10 Winter Road Trips From Toronto

10 winter road trip from torontoWith snowmageddon here we’re all dreaming of getting away. If you haven’t planned to run away and frolic in the sun, these 10  family friendly winter road trips from Toronto might spark a quick getaway. I’ve always loved taking road trips during our family day long weekend for a couple reasons: It’s a good three days and you can tag on an extra day easily; it’s also a good time to link up with friends in the U.S because they too have a long weekend. Since it’s also the hub’s birthday, Valentine’s day AND our first date anniversary – I simply HAVE to do something. Winter road trips aren’t a bad idea as long as you know how to drive safely and have a car that is secure and winterized. As for easy drives from Toronto, my criteria is that it has to be less than 9 hours drive time and have enough indoor activities to keep us entertained and well fed! 


Go on.. take a look. Where to next weekend guys?
