When Canadian winters vary 20 degrees in one week, it’s hard not to dream about jumping on the first flight and getting away. Relaxing by a pool and having no concept of time, seems like something you can only find on an island! Sadly for many of us, packing our suitcases and catching the next flight out of here isn’t always in the cards.
Many of us push aside the idea of vacation and start to dream about the summer months, looking forward to weekends packed with trips to the cottage and camping across Ontario. But before your weekends are full of non-stop action, take a moment now to relax at one of these spas in each of the five areas we service! From Dead Sea salt pools to couple massages and family getaways, who said you need to leave Ontario to relax?
