Now Victoria Day Weekend is locally known as May 24 Long Weekend and is celebrated as the unofficial beginning of summer. An occasion to be celebrated with trips to the lake surrounded by friends and family with lots of food, drinks and fireworks.
What better way to celebrate the birth of a Queen and the beginning of a beautiful summer than renting a car, packing up the family and going on a relaxing summer vacation. Advantage Car and Truck Rentals has the perfect lineup of vehicles to make your long weekend as fun and relaxing as it should be.
Check out our list of amazing spots to kick back and relax and the perfect vehicle to get you there safely and affordably.
Sauble Beach is consistently rated as Canada’s Best Freshwater Beach and as soon as you arrive you will see why. The whole town’s look is more reminiscent of Myrtle Beach or the Hamptons than anything you would normally find in Ontario. While it is a three-hour drive from Toronto, it is certainly worth the trip, fishing, camping and fun beach games all await you this long weekend at Sauble Beach.
Ford Escape/Honda CRV
Since Sauble Beach is a bit of a long drive from Toronto you will want a vehicle with lots of room for you and the family but also a lot of room in the trunk for all your games and luggage. The Ford Escape and the Honda CRV were made for escaping your usual, everyday schedule and doing something new, that’s why it’s called the Ford Escape!
Both Vehicles comfortably seat 5 with loads of room in the trunk for everything you would need for a weekend away. The multimedia systems are also top notch and very easy to set up so all of your music and phone calls are all directed through the radio making sure your eyes are on the road the whole time. All you have to do is make sure you have your Summer Playlist up to date and hit the road.
