While there is plenty to do in Toronto, in less than two hours, you can find yourself on beautiful hiking trails, swimming in lakes, or even visiting friendly alpacas.

These day trips from Toronto dish up a gorgeous dose of nature and charming towns for a breath of fresh air away from the city.

Swim at Bass Lake and Explore Orillia

One of the best Ontario parks, a day pass gives you access to all the park’s facilities, such as picnic areas, a beautiful sandy beach with a playground, and boat rentals on site.

Explore the Famous Niagara Falls

The city is named after the impressive waterfall known worldwide for the staggering amount of water flowing over them.

Hike to a Waterfall at McCrae Lake

McCrae Lake is a special part of Georgian Bay because, unlike most of the lakes in the region, it has no cottages on it.

Float or Paddle Down the Grand River

You can rent a canoe, kayak, tube, or another floating device through The Grand River Rafting Company.

Visit Port Perry and Meet Alpacas

The main streets of Port Perry are lined with historic Victorian-style buildings. Many serve as boutiques, shops, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and more.

Go Swimming at Rockwood Conservation Area

Rockwood has a public beach with a sandy and grassy area, and the water is perfect – plenty of shallow water that eventually becomes deeper.
