It’s a good time to sneak away from the city, and we’ve got the perfect destination in mind. The village of Kleinburg is a dreamy escape right here in the GTA.

Kleinburg is a quaint and romantic destination in Vaughan, less than 45 minutes north of Toronto.

The charming village is home to “spas, one-of-a-kind boutiques, world-class dining, and European charm,” its website says.

It’s best known for the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, an art museum on 100 acres of forested land by the Humber River.

The public art gallery is “uniquely devoted to collecting and exhibiting the art of Canada,” says its description.

Not only is it a must-visit for art lovers, but it is also an incredibly beautiful spot for a walk in nature.

Once you’ve done the gallery, you can wander through the historic village of Kleinburg, where shops, restaurants, and cafes line the streets.
