Take a look at all the fun that you can have with your family this winter in Toronto.
As winter approached, my family and I were looking for an easy getaway where we could bond and have some fun. We wanted a destination that offered plenty of outdoor fun, activities that would keep all of us entertained, and good food. Most people we know would have headed south to find sunshine on a beach, but, instead, we went north to Canada and family-friendly Toronto.
I loved the idea of exploring a new city, my 13-year-old son Aidan was excited at the thought of visiting another country without changing time zones, and my hockey-happy hubby, Ken, was dreaming of ice rinks. On top of that, the great exchange rate makes it seem as though the whole of Canada is on sale for Americans, and Toronto is only 90 minutes from 60% of the United States, including my New Jersey home, making a visit across the border a no-brainer.
Keeping Warm in an Underground City Tunnel
Since we were spending a long weekend in Toronto, I was able to co-pack all three of us in a single roomy trunk, using packing cubes to keep our belongings organized. Then we hopped a quick Porter Airlines flight to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, and it took just five minutes to get from the airport to downtown via a cool new pedestrian tunnel with moving walkways (a kid pleaser literally right out of the gate). Actually, that’s another great part about visiting Toronto in the winter: Nearly 20 miles of underground passages, called The PATH, let you dodge the weather whenever you want to warm up.
