It’s the first day of autumn here in Toronto! Kids are already back in school, days are getting shorter, and the temperatures are slowly starting to drop. Yet, fall is so beautiful in it’s own right, and one of nature’s most spectacular displays of colour. It’s a perfect time to go on a road trip or an adventure.
Here in Southern Ontario, some trees have already started to change their leaf colour. And as October sets in the forest canopy becomes more vibrant and rich with hues and shades of reds, purples, yellows, oranges, browns, and greens. On a sunny afternoon day, artists can easily get inspired! And the visits to the cottage country around this time of the year are high for obvious reasons.
If you live and work in a big city like Toronto or in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), life can be very fast paced, hectic and stressful. Which is why many people, on the weekends, love to unwind, relax and do something completely opposite. For example, many love to go to their cottages, or rent a cabin in woods with some friends or alone. Or perhaps go out exploring all the little towns in Southern Ontario, check out fall fairs, attend conventions and various social events. Fall is a bountiful season with much happening.
Whatever you do, you’ll need reliable and comfortable transportation. Although sometimes your own transportation is the way to go.. if you’re going to be attending a convention, sporting event, concert, social event, casino, romantic gateway, or need to be dropped off or pick up at Toronto Pearson International Airport – it’s much nicer to ride in a classy limousine.
Toronto Airport Limo offers superb limousine transportation service to anywhere in the Southern Ontario. Our prices are very competitive, yet out fleet is modern and well kept and we can transport any group size. We have new additions like BMW 750Li, Tesla Model S, Mercedes C300 or Sprinter Van, Cadillac Escalde etc. Our friendly customer service team is eager to answer your questions or help you arrange a ride.
