Hotels in the area offer a variety of combination packages, a “stay and play” idea, where options can range from wine & farm tours, to romantic getaways and spa delights, to golf and ski packages. Some tour companies have hotel locations where they are just steps away from the concierge, making adventures just a bit more accessible. Just a short drive from the city centres, up into the surrounding hills, you will find the area’s fishing lodges in pristine surroundings. For hardy travelers, campers can pitch a tent or park their RV in a wide range of properties, from isolated lakes to full service beachside parks with all the amenities. Reservations for rooms, and a spot to pitch a tent or park recreational vehicles are highly recommended during the summer months and long weekends.
