Start your summer off with a splash, as Elora Quarry is now open.

The stunning aquamarine swimming hole is only 1.5-hours from Toronto and is where you'll spend the summer floating your troubles away.

Here you can take a dip surrounded by limestone cliffs and relax on the sandy beach.

This year, it will be open from Monday, June 7, to Monday, September 6, and you'll need to purchase your ticket in advance to enter.

The entry fee for Elora Quarry Conservation Area is $10.50 per person and a parking pass is $15.

Each day there will be two four-hour timeslots from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. or 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Reservations open every Friday afternoon, and you'll be able to reserve your spot up to a week in advance.

If you are already melting from the heat, it is time to pack your swimsuit and go on a road trip.
