Family Car Trips Everyone Will Love - All Within Hours of Toronto

you don’t have to spend days driving to have an incredible family road trip experience.

After road tripping more than 100,000 kilometres throughout Canada with our family, I’m often asked for advice on destinations, what to see and do and the ever important – how to keep the kids entertained on the road. But you don’t have to spend days driving to have an incredible family road trip experience. Often the recommendations we make are for what we like to call one-pit-stop-destinations many of our friends have never even considered, which means many of them (and you!) are missing out on some of the best road trip experiences close to home.




 Maija is a busy mom to three busy children – children who insist on eating every day. Between shuttling kids to dance or cheer practice, tae kwon do, hockey, or baseball, she often finds herself in the kitchen looking at three hungry children (and a husband) and a clock ticking towards dinner time. 

Working a fulltime job from home with three kids under 12 means Maija often runs her household with a phone in one hand and a wooden spoon in the other, so she appreciates quick, healthy meals, prepared on a budget – and that’s what she delivers at both and on as Canned Soup Mom.
Her simple-to-prepare recipes have become the go-to meals for thousands of families, and Maija was recently named one of the Top Mom Food Bloggers in North America and given #2 honours in the budget-friendly recipes category. 
Maija loves to travel especially #CanadaWithKids adventures, with the goal of taking her family to all the Canadian provinces and territories within the next five years. The kids are on-board with these plans, and only partially because Maija keeps a mean supply of delicious treats in her travel kit.
