Let's be real, sometimes we all get a little bit sick of the city.  If you and your bae are looking for somewhere new to explore this summer, try road-tripping to a few of these places.

As an added bonus, most of these places are free. I understand that summer has taken a toll on all of our wallets, and its time to give the visa card a break.

Surprise your significant other by taking them out of Toronto and giving them a taste of what the GTA has to offer.  Explore Ontario!
