As a result, the family Sunday drive has become a thing of the past for many. In the
past, mom and dad would pack the kids into the car and go for a drive to take a look
at the local sights. It was something to look forward to and a great way to get out of
the house and enjoy your afternoon.
While things have changed greatly across Ontario over the past few decades, there
are still many great sites and routes in Toronto and the GTA that offer scenic drives
that the whole family can enjoy.
Whether you are looking for a great park, a beach or simply just want to go for a ride
in the car, these are some of the best drives in Toronto. Pick a day and take one of
