Places In Ontario

Before we get started, here are a few F.A.Q.’s and things you should know:

Toronto

Most of our itineraries use Toronto as the starting point, hence the CN Tower in our logo. It’s not because we are based in Toronto or that we have some centre of the universe complex – our friends from outside of Toronto will know what we mean 😉 We chose Toronto simply because it is the biggest city in the province/country, and everyone knows where it is. That said, travel time will vary depending on your starting point.

Day Trips

At Road Trip Ontario, we define day trips as road trips that take less than 2 hours to get to from Toronto. With about 4 hours of total driving, you should have enough time to enjoy fully what a destination offers, depending on the size of the city.

Weekend Getaway

We classify weekend getaways as road trips that are either 2-4 hours away from Toronto or big enough that it requires more than one day to explore.

Multi-day Road Trips

Any road trip more than 4 hours away from Toronto can be considered a multi-day road trip with half-day, full-day, and overnight stays in cities and towns along the route or off the beaten path toward your final destination.

Land Acknowledgement

While Road Trip Ontario will take us through numerous traditional territories throughout the province, we are based in Toronto, aka Tkaronto (meaning “the place in the water where the trees are standing”)

As such, we acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Toronto is covered by Treaty 13, signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties, signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.

Pronunciation

  • Anishnabeg: (ah-nish-naw-bek)
  • Haudenosaunee: (hoodt-en-oh-show-nee)
  • Métis: (may-tee)

African Ancestral Acknowledgement

Road Trip Ontario also acknowledges all Treaty peoples – including those who came here as settlers – as migrants either in this generation or in generations past – and those of us who came here involuntarily, particularly those brought to these lands as a result of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and Slavery. We pay tribute to those ancestors of African origin and descent.
