As you know, our family loves to travel! We love beaches, cruises, hotel stays, amusement parks and museums. We love to explore new places and return to old favorites. Our boys have been on 10 flights and travelled by car over 10 000 kms and they are only 3!
This summer we are focused on Ontario. Explore our Province and sharing our adventures along the way. Here are our recommendations for must see attractions in Ontario and the best way to get discounted tickets.
5 Must See Ontario Family Travel Destinations
1. Royal Ontario Museum (ROM)
The Royal Ontario Museum is one of our favorite places to visit and one that we try to get to often. Our last trip in the Spring was centred around the hands-on kids area where our boys crawled through fox den’s, watched bees make honey and marvelled at fish for hours. This summer, we are planning to take in the dinosaur exhibits and the new exhibit Mesopotamia.
2. Casa Loma
The home of business visionary, Sir Henry Pellatt, Casa Loma is a majestic castle in the heart of Toronto. Pellat, a romantic at heart drew up the plans and began construction on the castle in 1911. Casa Loma was completed in 1914 after 300 men and $3.5 million were spent to create it. Now, a beautiful estate and museum, Casa Loma is a wonderful attraction for a family to visit. Steeped in history, Casa Loma is a fun way to step back in time. I can’t wait to take my boys there. Heading to Casa Loma?

3. Ontario Science Centre
The Ontario Science Centre is a favorite of mine. Even though I have a phobia of math and science at school, the Ontario Science Centre makes it fun, interactive and engaging. I haven’t taken my boys yet, but plan to this summer. I know that they will love the Kidspark program and the IMAX films. If you live in the Toronto area, the Ontario Science Centre also offers birthday parties, sleepovers and day camps.

From that steep hill to the rush down – amazing. Canada’s Wonderland is the perfect family destination because there is something fun for every age group and interest. From the waterpark to Canada’s largest roller coaster, Leviathan it is sure to be a fun filled day.
