Find culture and thrills in Richmond Hill

Attractions in Richmond Hill come in a variety of distinct flavors, although a helping of culture is particularly easy to come by thanks to the Georgian-styled neighborhood around Regent Street and the small-town charm that oozes around every corner along Yonge Street. Continue your journey with a trip to Black Creek Pioneer Village, an 1800s settlement with period buildings and jovial costumed guides. Of course, it’s not all history and culture in these parts. Most Richmond Hill vacation rentals are within a quick drive of thrills and spills at the Canada’s Wonderland theme park and Ontario’s wilder inhabitants at Toronto Zoo.

Enjoy a mild climate in Richmond Hill

Temperatures here start to pick up from around May and tend to hover around the high 70s throughout July and August. These sunny days coincide with the lowest rainfall of the year and offer the perfect backdrop to enjoy the town’s numerous parks and natural areas. Winter naturally means a fall in temperature, although it very rarely falls below zero and the town’s annual Winter Carnival and Santa Claus Parade makes having to wrap up warm worth the effort. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall have their own appeal, boasting blooming flowers and changing foliage together with a wider choice of Richmond Hill vacation rentals.
