Here at Mylar & Loreta’s Restaurant, we want you to have a great holiday season! If your plans include staying home and enjoying your family, here are our top 10 ideas to make this your best staycation yet.

1. Visit the Local Ski Resort

Skiing is the perfect winter activity for nearly every age! If you haven’t been to Blue Mountain this season, winter break is the perfect reason to go.

2. Head to the Spa

Winter break is a great time to relax, and taking a trip to the spa for a massage, facial, manicure, or pedicure is the perfect way to unwind and rejuvenate yourself for the New Year. Try out one of these local spa locations during your staycation.

 

3. Host a Movie Marathon

Get into the holiday spirit by hosting a movie marathon with your family and friends. This comprehensive list of holiday movies is a great place to get started.

4. Get Crafty

When the weather outside is chilly and you want to stay bundled up and warm, there’s no better way to fill your time than with a holiday craft project. Get your kids or your friends involved, and bake up some tasty treats to eat while you work.

5. Explore Local Food and Beverage Spots

There are many exceptional restaurants in the Collingwood area, as well as plenty of local breweries. We recommend the Collingwood BreweryNorthwinds Brewery, or Side Launch Brewing.

6. Try Out a New Recipe

Whether you’re a gourmet chef or you hardly know your way around the kitchen, your staycation gives you plenty of time to perfect that holiday dish. These Christmas recipes are a good place to start if you need some inspiration.

7. Rearrange Your Home

The New Year gives you an opportunity to start fresh. Get a great start in 2018 by moving your couch to a new wall, organizing that messy closet, or repositioning the lamps, rugs, and throw pillows in your bedroom. If you’re feeling ambitious, you might even want to do some deep cleaning!

8. Get Lost in a Good Book

Set aside a few hours, or even an entire day, to get caught up in a good book. Try out one of the titles on this holiday book list.

9. Go Sledding

The Collingwood area has no shortage of snow this time of year, so sledding is a must-do activity. These local tobogganing areas are great places to go with your kids.

10. Eat Dinner at Our Restaurant

Nothing says the holidays like a homecooked meal! If you’d rather skip the prep and the dishes, join us at Mylar & Loreta’s Restaurant for a holiday dinner, and make you sure you bring your whole family!
