Environment Canada is once again predicting soaring temperatures this summer in Ontario. British Columbia has already witnessed record mid-May temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius that are making people take notice.
Ontario resorts are getting ready for large groups of summer travelers headed toward the waterfront properties of central Ontario. Consequently, some planning is in order for those wanting to make the trip to Ontario waterfront Resort country. Here are three rules of thumb for travelers that don’t have the luxury of their own cottage and who are looking for the best resort locations in Ontario:
- Conduct research to ensure you make the best travel plans, i.e. Internet, travel directories, etc.
- Plan your travel – be creative and set up excursions to area attractions for some adventure if need be.
- Book early – those that book early have their pick of the best locations and accommodations and usually find they get a better value.
