8 Fall Getaway Ideas From Toronto

Spa-Collingwood

Looking for fun fall getaway ideas from Toronto?

I’m sharing a few of my favourite places to watch the leaves turn that are only a short road trip away from my hometown of Toronto. I like to take the weekend away to hike, read, go to the spa and breathe in the crisp cold air in the great outdoors. So round-up your girlfriends or your significant other and let’s hit the road!

1. Prince Edward County, Ontario

One of my all-time favourite weekend trips from Toronto. I would suggest staying at Huff Estates or the Drake Devonshire Inn and pick out a bunch of wineries and restaurants to check out during your visit.

See my Travel Guide to Prince Edward County for more fall getaway ideas for your visit! About a 2.5 hour drive to Picton, Ontario from Toronto.

2. Ste. Anne’s Spa in Grafton, Ontario

Relax at this pretty country estate and book a few spa appointments to re-centre yourself. I love hitting all the water therapies, steam room and sauna to detox and reset.

The overnight stays at Ste. Anne’s Spa are all-inclusive, so you don’t have to worry about meals or paying extra for yoga or meditation classes. About a 90 minute drive to Grafton, Ontario. (more…)

I got myself all freaked out over nothing because they really just press the Thai stems and herbs against the body (like a hot stone massage) and it was not painful at all. It actually reminded me a bit of a hot stone massage. (more…)
