We all know summer equals beach time. Despite Londonís fairly dry location (we donít count the Thames as a summer hotspot), it is surrounded by plenty of places to get wet. Here are the Interrobang teamís top five hottest beaches and swimming spots for summer daytrips or weekend fun.
A little over an hourís drive northeast of London sits a popular summer hotspot - who hasnít been to Grand Bend? Itís a great place for shopping on the strip, people-watching and general summer shenanigans. It also provides a great escape from London with camping and cottages.
The Pinery is a long-standing favourite summer spot because of its beach, 10 hiking trails and 14 km bike trail, not to mention canoeing, kayaking, hydrobiking and fishing. Itís also a great place to pitch a tent - camping at the Pinery is always a fun experience.
This former limestone quarry is now basically a large outdoor swimming pool. Check out it out online for the swimming schedule.
A port town on Lake Erie, Port Stanley is home to a fabulous sandy beach, quaint little shops and Mackieís, a beachside restaurant famous for their Orangeade and fries.
A picturesque beach surrounded by the sandy cliffs of Lake Erie. Fun fact: the Federation of Canadian Naturists labeled it one of their ďclothing optionalĒ places in Ontario, despite the beachís protests that itís not.
