The winter season drums up a mixed bag of opinions. Some people love those frosty days, while others (literally) hide from them. The best way to approach winter and its below freezing temperatures is to just embrace it! Bundle up, get outside, and partake in all the fun winter activities the season has to offer. Whether you’re making snow angels, skiing on the slopes, or hunting down a warm and tasty hot chocolate, joining in the winter fun some way or another will make the time fly by. Another great winter activity, and probably one of Canada’s most beloved is ice skating! There are lots of great spots throughout the GTA to dust off your skates and hit the rink, but these are some of our favourites.
If you were to make a list of all the reasons fall is wonder, what would top it? The fact that Starbucks brings back the Pumpkin Spice Latte? Sweater weather? Turkey? All those reasons are valid, but another list topper? The beautiful fall colours. There’s a time in early October when all the trees become ablaze with bright colour, making any outdoor spot something to behold. It’s also a great reason to get outdoors and explore the wonderful nature around us. Here are some of the best spots to see fall colours in the GTA.
While we hate to see summer go, we can’t help but get excited to welcome fall into our lives with open arms. With the first cool breeze of autumn we’re reminded of all the wonderful sweaters we’ve been wanting to wear, all the pumpkin spice lattes we want to drink, and all the cozy soup we want to eat. Fall is the perfect time to get outside and explore – it’s not too hot, not too cold, and the leaves are changing colour, so every outdoor excursion becomes a great photo opportunity. Our favourite fall activity has to be apple picking – for the fun outdoors, but also for the tasty pies that follow. Here are some of the best places to pick your own apples in the GTA.
The excitement is building! There’s so much to love for the GTA and Whitby is one of those places. This gem shouldn’t be overlooked, it’s got a lot going for it. From green space to community events, it’s a great place to live and raise a family. This is why we’re thrilled to be a part of Whitby Meadows, a community that’s going to bring new life to the area near Coronation Road and Rossland Road.
But first, let us indulge you in some of the details that make Whitby the charming town you’ll want to call home. This is Whitby by the numbers:
There’s a chill in the air and winter is definitely here! When the cold weather hits, it can be a struggle to get the family out of the house. Luckily there are so many places throughout Whitby and Durham region to take the family. We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite activities both for the family and for the kids to do, both outdoors and in! Hopefully it’ll give you some inspiration.
Whitby is a fast-growing city and we’re thrilled to be part of that with our newest project, Whitby Meadows. As Whitby grows and changes, lots of new businesses and attractions are opening up, but we think some of the mainstays need a little love! Below are 5 family-friendly picks we’ll never get sick of spending an afternoon on.
