The Best Road Trips To Go On From Every Ontario University This Fall

Temporary escapes from school work.

It's only the second week of school and several students are already feeling the stress. Assignments, essays and group projects are quickly piling up, and in no time it'll already be midterm season.

But as a student, it's still important to maintain a good balance between school work and leisure. A good way to do that is by going on quick road trips to places nearby your campus with your friends; to temporarily escape the wrath of your academic duties.

Below are the best road trips to go on from every Ontario university this fall. All of the destinations are approximately three-hours away or less, making them perfect for a day or weekend trip:
