Toronto is a beautiful city to vacation in with your family, offering not only the spectacular Niagara Falls, but also so much more in the city and surrounding areas.

Just the fact that especially during summer months, you are on Lake Ontario, because summers are quite hot and humid. The nice things about the Toronto are is it does get cold in winter, but Toronto isn’t known for getting a lot of snow. You do however, have to plan for cold and bring appropriate clothes.

A tasty way to escape the cold and get a picture of Toronto’s history is to visit the waterfront neighborhoods steeped in their distillery past. This is a location frequented by locals because it is just a very relaxing, “foot traffic” only bit of “time travel”. As you walk the original cobblestone paths you will swear you can hear the horse drawn buggies of the old days. Today the streets are lines with quaint little cafés, restaurants and shops, and even a brewery.

Any time of year, when touring Toronto, visiting it’s famous castle is always a treat. What castle you ask? Casa Loma. This 98-room massive castle was a lifetime dream of Sir Henry Pellatt, and in the 1800’s he built it. This spectacular castle features a massive wine cellar, horse stables, towers and even secret passageways to experience. In warm weather the five acre gardens are a joy to walk about and even plan a picnic. A favorite of visitors is the 800-foot underground tunnel connecting the stables to the castle.

Kissimmee, Florida can be an excellent “budget friendly” choice for many, especially vacationing families with small children. Although it is easier to visit Disney when staying inside the park, it’s a budget buster for sure. Keep in mind, Kissimmee is  the closest area to Magic Kingdom and other main attractions, has budget friendly hotels and definitely kid-friendly.

Planning your vacation in the Kissimmee area is something that can be accomplished all year long, because it’s truly a year-long vacation destination. Spring Break, Holidays and summer months are without question, the obvious busy months. These are for obvious reasons crowded, and prices for just about everything higher. Therefore, planning your vacation off-season can get better hotel rates, discounts at area attractions, and even better prices in restaurants.

Heat tip: Plan your days according to summer temps, by visiting indoors attractions in afternoon heat, think air-conditioning.

When doing your research for a hotel resort in Kissimmee, your best be is to find one that offers a free airport transport so you don’t need that added expense of car rental, insurance, gas and parking fee’s. However, if you plan to take any day trips outside the area, you may choose to rent at the airport, or wait until needed and rent one from your resort.
