The days are long but the summer is short, which means it’s time to treat yourself and your sweetheart to a romantic three-day getaway. Our three-day Perfect Pairings itinerary will take you through some of Vaughan’s notable date spots!
It’s time to find somewhere beautiful to get lost in. Start your weekend getaway with a stop at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.

It’s time for dinner and we know just where to guide you. Share a bowl of pasta – Lady and the Tramp style – or split a fine Italian pizza at Trio Restaurant. Serving up the finest Italian cuisine, Trio Restaurant is a romantic, picturesque fine dining experience that can only be enhanced by a glass of carefully curated red or white wine.
