With Valentine’s Day coming up, the idea of enjoying some quiet time with your significant other, friend, yourself or family gets more and more appealing. Especially with all the beautiful escapes to enjoy in Ontario. We have five places for you to escape to this winter to enjoy a little escape. There’s nothing wrong with treating yourself!
Indulge in a trip to the spa to relax your mind and body. Take the time to unwind with a relaxing hot rocks body massage. Spend the day at a spa – we recommend the Touchstone Resort Spa on Lake Muskoka for an all-inclusive experience that will provide you with an intimate day of connection and revitalization. Check out their spa packages on their website here!
Bed & Breakfast
A staycation is a great way to escape for a weekend without worrying about a flight delay! A classic bed and breakfast is a simple way to escape the city and relax in a secluded location. The remarkable Drake Devonshire Inn, is a well-known boutique hotel in Prince Edward County. Here, where you can enjoy their fantastic art exhibitions and delicious dining options.
Arts and culture is a creative way to spend some time with those close to you. What better way of experiencing art than creating it yourself! Whether it’s painting, sculpting, or making music, there are plenty of options to spark your creativity. If you’re in Haliburton this month, check out the Artlovers’ Staycation 2018. A series of arts classes being held at the Rails End Gallery offer a creative twist on date night. Spots are limited so book now!
A night out doesn’t always have to be an extravagant experience. A traditional dinner date can take a fun twist with a unique dining experience. O.Noir in Toronto is a restaurant where guests experience their meal in the dark! This experience provides restaurant goers with a blind dinner experience, where you are served by visually impaired staff and must order and eat without being able to see. A delicious meal and an eye-opening experience makes for a special evening!
Trying new things can always be a daunting task, so why not try it with someone special? Going on a wine tour is a great way to explore your local wine options and enjoy an afternoon. Winter may not seem like the perfect time to venture out to a vineyard, but Georgian Hills Vineyard in Collingwood has a Winter Wonderland Tour that features a guided snowshoe tour of the vineyard, with stops at a winery, cidery and brew house, and kitchen. This tour is also a great way to experience the beauty of Collingwood this winter.
