Autumn is only a handful of days away, and we’ll be honest: we can’t believe summer is almost done! The leaves change colour. Drinks are magically all pumpkin-spice flavoured. Scarves are once again the perfect accessory. The weather may still be a little unsure (is it a 28° C day, or 21° C? No one knows) but we’re lucky. In Vaughan, there’s so much to do – both indoor and outdoor – that your weekends never have to be dull. Located just north of Toronto, we’re in that perfect spot so that you can come for a day, two days, or an entire week. Trust us, you won’t be bored.
