Default a good vacation during easter weekend (W/O flying)

our family hasn't gone anywhere in a while, and we're all tired out from work/school, so we've decided to go somewhere for the weekend. However, we then saw the prices for flights.. nuff said.

We've been to a hell of a lot of places around toronto, and we've run out of options to drive to. Any ideas?

we always do, but unless we have a cottage (we don't) it'd be useless going camping now.

You can rent them, they are not that expensive. But if you want something in TO scarborough bluff is pretty cool place. I went there with my friends last year, lots of fun to climb it

If you hadn't have gone to Montreal for Spring Break I'd have said there....

You could always drive to Detroit and then catch a cheap flight out of there to somewhere in the USA. Usually much cheaper than going out of T.O.

Probably easier to drive to Buffalo and catch a flight from there.

that was actually a great idea, I checked the flights for buffalo, but they weren't much cheaper. Why the hell does it cost 650 dollars for a domestic, 2.5 hour flight???

It's got nothing to do with prices - Buffalo is half the distance.

Check travelzoo.ca. There's a sale on Porter Air from Toronto.

It's about $330 each to fly return to Chicago, Boston, Washington DC or New York City.

I agree. It's totally different from Toronto in every way and the city is more geared towards fun. Good for kids too, especially in the summer.
