March Break in Toronto

We're staying home this March Break for the first time in years. I'm not going to lie, I feel a little weepy about it. Our annual spring break family vacay to Walt Disney World has become one of our most cherished family traditions and it's half killing me that we aren't going this year - well, this winter. Hopefully we can sneak away for a week in the summer.

It's still March Break, though, and the kids will still be home from school for a week, so we'll do our best to make it memorable. And there is definitely no shortage of fun things to do this March Break in and around Toronto!

The Zoo is open for extended hours all March Break for families to enjoy a full day of animal fun. Meet the new baby polar bear cub and the giant pandas and enjoy special March Break Activity Centre programming, prizes and activities from Parks Canada.

  1. Great ideas! I can't wait to hear what you and your family did for the break. Not to sound too stalkerish, but you haven't been posting as regularly recently. I hope everything's all right. I'm a faithful reader and fan!

    1. Lol - I'm sure you're not a stalker. We've had a crazy busy super fun March Break - I'll post all about it next week! SorryI haven't been posting as often lately - I've been a little down-in-the-dumps & not feeling like blogging after a little disappointment a couple of weeks ago but I'm back now!
