These locations are for people who are looking for a quick getaway from the city. Although some of these destinations have significantly smaller night life options than Toronto, they are still great places to consider going to to take a break from the Entertainment District.

Though Guelph isn't typically known as a party city, it can still be a whole lot of fun with the right group of people. From cozy bars to a few small clubs, you're sure to find some place exciting to go to during your night out.
