With its vast ranging lakes and beaches, Ontario has lots to offer for families off on vacation—and that means plenty of well-equipped and welcoming family resorts to match. The provincial motto of “Yours to Discover” invites you to explore Ontario’s more than 250,000 lakes by canoe or paddleboard. You can stay in a lakeside cottage and tell ghost stories over a campfire, or nestle into snow-capped lodgings just steps from ski slopes.
After a hearty breakfast in your apartment-style digs, you can trek out across serene meadows or the remote forest tracks of a protected nature park. When all that fresh air has helped you work up an appetite, head back to your lodgings to dine on prime cuts of Canadian beef or freshly-caught fish. Just make sure to leave enough room for some marshmallows toasted on the fire.
