The southernmost township in all of Canada, Pelee Island is a municipality in the middle of Lake Erie that is only accessible by ferry from the Ontario towns of Leamington and Kingsville, both of which are about 300 km (185 miles) southwest of Toronto. Particularly notable for its migrating birds, its vineyards and wine sampling, and its milder climate, this is the type of destination for travelers who want to take it slow for a while or ditch the friends for a (gasp!) weekend of schmoozing the significant other. We'll be honest, you'll be owed a couple of adventures with your besties after this.
For those with active interests, there are Fish Point and Lighthouse Point, home to a 200-year-old restored lighthouse, where you'll get your fill of both land and water exploration. Hikers and cyclists will enjoy a few dozen miles of hiking and biking trails, some of which are road-based. Check out the official website for more activities and the best times to show up.
