Brampton vacation rentals

A gala of art, music, and Wet 'n'Wild times

Known as the Flower Town of Canada, thanks to its long (stemmed) flower-growing heritage, Brampton is a charming small city and a 20-minute train journey north of downtown Toronto. Plan your exciting Ontario getaway by booking a well-placed Brampton vacation rental close to the sights. In winter, culture vultures can visit the acclaimed Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives, which showcases both contemporary and classical Canadian art, or catch an award-winning show at the historic Rose Theatre. Summer brings a variety of free concerts in beautiful Gage Park, and the chance to get soaked at the Wet 'n'Wild waterpark.

Free music and fabulous farm-to-table dining

During the balmy summer months, Brampton turns al fresco, boasting an abundance of lush-green parks, plus several pedestrian streets lined with buzzy pavement bars, cafes, and restaurants. Book a Brampton vacation rental close to the historic downtown, and you'll be within easy reach of vibrant farmers' markets, craft beer joints, and some fabulous farm-to-table restaurants serving Ontario's finest home-grown produce. Don't miss a visit to Brampton's landmark Gage Park, which offers a series of free concerts in the summer, and an ice-skating trail in winter.

Get wet and go wild in Brampton

This small, charming city has a long affiliation with arts and culture in Canada. Brampton is the home of the widely acclaimed Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA). You'll find collections by notable Canadian artists, including David Milne and Charlotte Schreiber, as well a number of acclaimed international artists, in this restored heritage building in the heart of downtown. Don't miss a peek into its authentic jailhouse and courthouse. If the summer heat gets a bit too much, you can keep your cool at the Wet'n'Wild water park. Along with a dozen or so hair-raising waterslides, it has the awesome Jet Stream zipline, which whizzes 1,200 feet across the park.

Winter temperature's put the brrr in Brampton

Ontario is generally blessed with warm, sunny summers and sharp, snowy winters. The busiest time to visit is between July and September, when temperatures reach highs of 80°, and the Toronto International Film Festival brings the crowds. Spring and fall can be a bit of a mixed bag with sun-filled days and cool nights, so don't forget to pack some layers. Have a pick of Brampton vacation rentals in the winter months, November through to March, when biting winds and snow sweep through the city.

Spot the snapping turtles of southern Ontario

Brampton is a bustling little city 18 miles from the banks of Lake Ontario. But hidden among the concrete sprawl are various ways to get in touch with nature. Heart Lake Conservation Area on the northern outskirts of the city is downtown's green lung. Go fishing in Heart Lake, or choose one of the many hiking trails which wind through the woodlands, past marshes, and in places offering panoramic views of southern Ontario. There's an interesting variety of wildlife which call the lake home, including snapping turtles and milk snakes.
