Family Friendly

Mom, Dad and kid approved

What’s better than a day spent with family on the beach? The shorelines of Ontario’s Southwest are home to an amazing collection of family-friendly beaches. So get ready to bury Dad in the sand, build the world’s best sandcastle and perfect that doggie paddle. The sunny shores of Lake Erie, Lake Huron and Lake St. Clair are calling.

Save on your next beach escape with our summer offers!
