The Best Waterfalls To Visit Near Sudbury

 

 

Waterfalls are some of nature’s most serene and relaxing wonders. They are beautiful to look at and even experience by immersing yourself in the cool and refreshing water! There are many waterfalls that are located around the Sudbury region and we’ve got your covered on the best ones to visit during summer break!

 

Onaping Falls

Onaping Falls is located about 35 km west of Sudbury and is considered one of the best waterfalls in all of Ontario. The Onaping River drops over 150 feet, the largest of which is a 30 foot final drop. A trail climbs up across the rock alongside the falls allowing the ability to view different parts of the falls. There are also some impressive rock formations to look at by the falls.

 

Paradise Lagoon

Paradise Lagoon located in the Greater Sudbury Region is a considered a secret “swimming hole” that sports a beautiful waterfall! Most canoeists who pass along the Chiniguchi River that’s located close to Paradise Lagoon don’t even know the lagoon exists, as it lies off the portage and across from the main course of the river and associated waterfall. Getting to these falls is quite a trek as it can only be accessed by canoeing, so these falls are definitely meant to be visited by the explorer at heart!

 

Larchwood Cascade

If you’re looking to hit 2 waterfalls in a day, after your visit to Onaping Falls, we suggest stopping by Larchwood Cascade! There are many small falls that can be explored within narrow rock channels. Parking is located on Mooney Rd., south of the river.

Fun Ways To Spend A Day With Your Family

Fun Ways To Spend A Day With Your Family

 

There’s nothing more important than quality time with family. With family day heading our way, it’s the perfect day to plan an activity or outing with your loved ones! Below we’ve listed some fun and creative ways for you to spend some well-needed time with your family!

Take The Family Out For Skating

Some good old-fashioned skating is always a fun activity for the whole family! Whether you are a complete beginner at skating or are used to zipping around a lake or arena with ease, skating is a great activity that only gets your family out of the house but also helps promote healthy, physical activity. Many skating arenas offer skates for rental, so you don’t have to worry about purchasing them if you do not own them and lots of arenas love to bump loud family friendly music, making the experience of skating with your family a fun one! 

Plan A Movie Marathon

While watching movies is a common activity that many families may already take part in, why not take your movie marathon to the next level? Have each member of your family pick their favourite movie and binge watch them all together, while taking a vote at the end on who’s movie was the best of the day! Be sure to have lots of popcorn and other treats available to snack on, and you’ve got yourself a movie marathon!

Set Up A Paint & Sip

If you have a family that loves to be creative, this idea is the one for you. Head over to your local dollar store and pick up paint canvas’, paints and paintbrushes. Set up a punchbowl or drink dispenser with a fruity mocktail and set out some cheese, crackers and fruits. Both you and your family can decide on an image or a scene to paint, or you all can have each family member paint one another. By the end, you’ll have a stack of creative art pieces that you can hang around the home and share with one another! 

Go For A Day Trip

Want to extend family day into family weekend? Pack your bags and drive over to a nearby city and make a day trip out of it! You can visit local parks, malls, restaurants and other attractions in the city, exploring new sightings together! After a long day, check into a hotel and sleep off the day before you make the road trip back home! If you are staying in the Sudbury region, Quality Inn Sudbury offers family friendly accommodations that are comfortable, safe and accessible for your next stay in Sudbury.

We hope these ideas will help you plan an enjoyable and fun Family Day!

The Benefits of Sensory Deprivation Tanks

The Benefits of Sensory Deprivation Tanks

 

We all deserve a spa day once in a while! Sudbury is home to many wonderful spas, offering everything you may be looking for, from manicures, to facials to even float therapy! This type of spa experience, also called a “sensory deprivation tank” is a unique experience that involves laying in a pod full of water and salt. The high level of salt allows you to easily float in what feels like air, creating an environment of sensory deprivation.

Keep on reading to learn more about the benefits of sensory deprivation tanks and where you can visit one in the Sudbury region!

Helps You Relax

Float therapy has immense benefits in helping you relax. The experience can activate your parasympathetic nervous system which activates feelings of relaxation. Relaxation can help reduce your blood pressure, muscle tension and more.

Reduces Your Pain

A session in a sensory deprivation tank releases endorphins, which can reduce any pain you may be feeling in your body. 

Improves Your Skin

The epsom salts used in the float tank can actually benefit our skin. Epsom salts contain a high level of magnesium which can help soothe some skin conditions and also remove dead skin cells.

Gets You To Try Something New

Float therapy is something different in comparison to your traditional spa experience, making it the perfect activity if you are looking to change up what you normally do. Who knows, the benefits can work for you!

One of the best places to experience all these benefits and more in a float tank is at the Float Pod Spa in Sudbury. This renowned experience in Sudbury offers both single pod and double pod float tanks (for 2 people) as well as memberships if you are looking to make your floating experience a regular one. 

Staying in Sudbury on vacation or a business trip? Float therapy is the solution to your typical spa experience when getting away, and Quality Inn Sudbury can hook you up with a beautiful and comfortable room to compliment your day of relaxation. Call 705.675.1273 to book now!
