Valentine Day kicks off the Ontario long weekend known as Family Day Weekend. The public holiday in Ontario is on Monday February 17, 2014. This year many Ontario residents will romance the snow and begin the holiday weekend on Valentine Day Friday February 14 for a mid-winter romantic long weekend north of Toronto.
Romantic resort and cottage weekend getaways from Toronto
A variety of winter weekend getaways and activities are available in resort destinations north of the Toronto GTA.
