March Break Fun

Here’s Ten Things to Do while the kids are out of school

March Break has already been underway for a few days and it can be a daunting task finding things to do for or with the little ones.

While some families choose this week to fly far away and enjoy the sun, sand and blender beverages, many of us stayed closer to home.

Well, in case you need a little almost mid-week inspiration on fun to be had between now and when school starts again, here are our picks for top ten fun things to do on March Break . . .

Visit Arrowhead Provincial Park. Grab your skates, snowshoes or skis and enjoy all the park has to offer. You can spend a full day out there (bring snacks and water) and the kids will love every minute of it! Learn more and get some tips at: Day or Night, This Trail’s Alright. Those looking to get out of town can enjoy similar activities at MacGregor Point Provincial Park in Port Elgin.

Tour the Muskoka Maple Trail. From March 10 to April 28, the annual Muskoka Maple Trail is up and running with sugar shacks collaborating with food and beverage establishments for a ton of maple fun.

Stroll through the Eclipse “Walk with Light” interactive, artistic sound and light display in Huntsville at Muskoka Heritage Place. The price is right: admission is only $5 per adult and youth are free. Plus, during March Break they have special performances each evening, including a magic show on March 16, musical artist Sean Cotton on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), and more.

The Muskoka Discovery Centre at the Gravenhurst Wharf is open for March Break and is full of fun for kids and adults. Journey through a bit of Muskoka history while enjoying interactive displays and learning a bit about both our natural and manmade environments.

Check out a great concert! Digging Roots will bring their fantastic sound and style to the Gravenhurst Opera House stage on March 17, as well as playing a mini-tour through Orillia, Barrie and Parry Sound in the coming week. Learn more at: Heritage & Healing Through Music.

Take a trip to the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre in Midland. Open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., there are interactive displays, workshops, birds of prey fields, a waterfowl monitoring station, and 25 km of trails to enjoy.

Get someone else to look after the kids and treat yourself to a spa day. Scandinave Spa in Blue Mountain and Vetta Spa near Horseshoe Valley are incredible places to relax, rejuvenate and escape the daily March Break grind.

Enjoy Toronto for shopping, the ROM, Ripley’s Aquarium, the Ontario Science Centre and more. Hey, let’s face it, as much as we love all the things to do in central Ontario, it’s nice to visit the city on occasion. What better way to spend a March Break day – or two?

Go to a live sporting event. Tickets are still available and affordable for Toronto FC’s March 18th match at BMO Field against Inter Miami. Check out this top ten list for more: Reasons to visit BMO Field this year.
