What To See And Do During March Break

by Author

Are you enjoying this article from your den or bedroom? If so, it sounds like your March Break is already going splendidly. Perhaps you haven’t made definite plans for your family yet, or you only have a few days to spare. Either way, we’ve found some places/events of interest. 

The following activities and travel ideas can be enjoyed by couples and families, so whether you’re planning on spending the week with five people or just one, we wish you a happy and memorable March Break. 

In Toronto

Toronto Zoo

Learn something new at the Toronto Zoo this March!  The animal oasis is hosting a week of camps and family programs, as well as overnight programs for kids of all ages.

Royal Ontario Museum 

Don’t miss the ROM’s rendition of the Enchanted March Break. The museum will invite guests to see what life was like hundreds of years ago. Drop-in family activities run from 11am - 4pm. 

Toronto Fashion Week

You’re never too young or too old to appreciate good fashion. Take a seat in the front row and be one of the first to witness what Canadian designers are working on for fall.

Evergreen Brick Works

There are a number of events taking place at Evergreen Brick Works this week, including fat bike rides and scavenger hunts, and opportunities to try delicious local dishes.   

Outside of Toronto 

Blue Mountain

Take advantage of the March Break activities being hosted by Blue Mountain. Even if it’s too warm to ski, the resort will be organizing a scavenger hunt, a 5K run, live music, movies and more.

Don’t forget about the Blue Mountain Village, either. Nestled at the foot of the slopes, Blue Mountain Village provides something for everyone to do. Lounge beside the fire pit and enjoy buskers, concerts and a host of numerous winter events. You can also enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride, do a bit of shopping, or stop into one of the many restaurants for a gourmet meal or sweet treat.  


If you’ve only got a few days off, Montreal is an ideal destination because you can drive there in six hours or less, and fly there in even less time. With a small town feel, urban city attractions, and world-famous smoked meat sandwiches, your family can enjoy some downtime and still partake in touristy activities.  


If you need a bit of sun in your life, Bermuda is fairly close to Toronto, and a little less busy than other tropical destinations. There is no shortage of beautiful beaches, fun activities and stunning golf courses though.

Washington D.C.

Washington can be a much more enjoyable experience than New York or Boston because the crowds aren’t quite as overwhelming (and you can do more with less). If you are able to secure a hotel near the major attractions, you’ll be able to walk to a lot of them.
