What to do ?
Save

I have relatives coming from Mexico between 20th and 30th December. They have 2 children a boy of 14 and a girl of 10. Any ideas on activities that might be taking place during that time (not too expensive and not too far away). I am hoping for snow as they have never seen snow.

Thanks

Hi brundel,

Everything will be gorgeous at Christmas, in Toronto and also Niagara Falls and since kids are out of school for Chrismas holidays, there's usually lots of things to see and do.

If the roads are good, you'd have no problem going to the Falls as they are spectacular in the winter and it's just a couple hours from Oshawa. Look at mapquest.ca for directions if you're not sure.

There's lots to keep kids busy in Toronto with the Science Centre, ROM, the Toronto Zoo (fun in the winter but you need to dress warmly) and just walking around seeing the Christmas displays. Imax or regular theatres usually offer great Christmas movies for the family.

If you check www.ontariotravel.net and look at the Events Calendar a few things like the Cavalcade of Lights will pop up. Also check: www.torontotourism.ca and

www.where.ca/toronto

If you have more specific questions, maybe post them to the Toronto forum or the Niagara Falls forum as the destination of "Oshawa" won't give you nearly as many responses. There's been quite alot of information about things to do during Christmas if you read some recent discussions here too.

I don't know how far you're willing to go, but even a trip to Ottawa would be great if it's within your time frame and budget.

Hope there's snow for Christmas too!
