March Break Travel: Where to go and what to do -

March break (or “spring break” for the Americans among us) is one of the school breaks I love the most. It hits right at that time when we are all itching for a break from the routines and it’s a signal that summer might actually be coming back after all. If you’ve been counting the days until your chance to get away, these destinations offer up a little something to help.

Viamede Resort, Woodview, Ontario

We spent a couple of glorious days out at Viamede this winter and loved it. With its grand fireplace and cozy cottages it has all the features of a great winter hiking getaway. This March Break package features something for everyone: plenty of kid’s activities including pool volleyball, swimming and crafts, as well as time for just the adults while kids are entertained with a pizza party (cost extra).

Viamede is located on Stoney Lake near Peterborough.
