Family-Friendly Fun and Thrills

Minutes from the heart of Toronto, Vaughan is a booming “City Above The City.” Families flock to Vaughan to experience fun and educational attractions, including Canada’s premier theme park – Canada’s Wonderland. Here, you can conquer Wonder Mountain with its 16 roller coasters (including three in the mountain itself), or enjoy the extensive Kidsville and Planet Snoopy areas with smaller ride warriors. In the height of summer, the whole family will enjoy the extensive waterpark including plunging slides, a huge wave pool, and a relaxing lazy river. If retail therapy is more your speed, you won’t want to miss the stores of Vaughan Mills, where designer stores mix with premium outlets.

After a bite at one of the eateries, enjoy family-friendly activities including bowling and the LEGOLAND Discover Centre. Remember when we said “educational attractions?” Well Reptilia, a reptile and amphibian zoo, gets you up close and personal with the slippery and slithery among the 53 habitat exhibits.

If you are into architecture, visit Woodbridge’s Market Lane. This shopping area features historic buildings full of charming character, not to mention some amazing Italian restaurants. During the summer months, Vaughan Concerts in the Park series holds free outdoor concerts featuring jazz, big-band, and contemporary cover bands.
