Subject: Toronto Area Advice Sought
Hi Toronto residents.

My wife and I will be going to Toronto in April and arriving on a Thursday. The hotel that we are planning on staying in is full Thursday (we have reservations for the weekend). We thought we might take a drive and spend the night outside of Toronto driving back to arrive late Friday afternoon. I am looking for some suggestions as to interesting sites outside of the city.

We have been to Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake. The Shaw festival will be on going, but our plans do not allow time to see a show. Therefore I am inclined to eliminate that area, as I assume hotels and motels will be full with festival goers.

Looking at a map of Ontario, I note Barrie to the North. Would that be an interesting area to visit for just an overnight stay? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
