Black Creek Pioneer Village - Go back in time and to a very different life style, preserved at Black Creek Pioneer Village. A recreation of an 1800s farm town, the "Village" has about two dozen buildings, including a barn with sheep and pigs, stables, a one room schoolhouse, a log house, and even a stagecoach. Best of all is watching crafts and chores being performed by people dressed as Mennonite farmers and sampling period foods.
Take a hike - The Kortright Centre for Conservation, less than an hour from Toronto, is Canada's biggest conservation center and it's perfectly located for walks in all kinds of terrain. Join a guided walk to explore forests or meadows and learn all about the local flora and fauna.
McMichael Canadian Art Collection - Get to know the Group of Seven at the McMichael, about 45 minutes north of downtown. The gallery sits in the midst of beautiful trees - a perfect setting for the collection of Canadian landscape paintings done in the early 1900s. Stopping here is a great way to get a feel for the passion Canadians have for their country's grand wilderness, and also see contemporary First Nations and Inuit artworks.
Canada's Wonderland - If you're ready to just let loose, check out the Wonderland. A spectacularly large amusement park with over four dozen rides (including 10 roller coasters). On hot days the big attraction is Splash Works, a huge water park. Musical shows, acrobats and high divers entertain everyone in the family.
