As Ontario steps into phase three of its opening stage, there are plenty of things to do in various cities. Although shopping malls and recreational places like Canada’s Wonderland have extremely long lineups, those aren’t the only activities you can enjoy. If you haven’t made a bucket list already, you’ll find this article handy.
Although things will be different this summer, it doesn’t have to be boring. It may be best to steer away from the crowd and focus on activities that don’t require you to be in close contact with strangers. Have fun while staying safe this summer with the following activities.
Although summer might seem like the ideal time to get a tan on the beach or visit a festival, you may need a break at some point. Have fun at home with one of the top satellite companies in Ontario and relax. When you need to spend some time with your family or friends, but no one’s up for an adventure, have one through a movie at home.
In addition to getting a satellite connection, you can also switch up your seating arrangements, change lights in the room, and create a movie theatre vibe in your living room. All the fun, half the cost!
2. Explore Natural Beauty
Luckily, Ontario is home to breathtaking views! Places like Tobermory, Elora Gorge, and Niagara Falls are examples of natural wonders that will not disappoint. Do some research to find a park or beach with clear water.
Try to pick a day when the areas are less crowded, pack some snacks, and get moving. Don’t forget to take your camera and click some new Instagram photos with the mesmerizing sceneries!
3. Get Creative with Food
Whether you need food when you’re out to explore nature or for a simple day at the beach, try to get creative. Although sandwiches and chips are classic, you can be the star of any event if you think outside the box. Charcuterie boards are trendy this summer. You can create one with a twist by adding items that people don’t usually add. Love pizza? Maybe create a DIY pizza-making board! When it comes to food, the options are endless.
There’s nothing like a relaxing day at the spa. Take some time to unwind and remove any negative energy from your body. You could go by yourself or ask a friend to tag along. Investing in your body is the best way to thank it. Get a massage, facial, or whatever you deem necessary to relax.
5. Enjoy a Virtual Concert
Imagine being able to sit back on your couch and enjoy your favourite type of music without having to get ready and rush anywhere! It sounds like a win-win. Although virtual concerts were banned in Ontario in April, events will be allowed again as things are opening up. You don’t have to give up the joys of summer just because things are different this time.
It can be challenging to find safe activities to take part in, but it is not impossible. Do your research, spend time figuring out the logistics, and plan with immediate family or close friends only to be extra cautious. You might have to take it easy this summer.
