You've come to the right place. In this personal yet practical website based on bestseller 480-page guide Toronto Fun Places by Nathalie Prézeau, you'll find attractions and things to do with kids, tested by the author with her friends and family, most of them within a two-hour drive of downtown Toronto. (Not so far away that your kids won't be back for bedtime!)
