Most think of Storeybook Gardens as a summer destination but give Winter a chance and make sure to bring your skates. Awesome experience for the whole family!

We go every year and it never disappoints! There is so much to do for such a low cost, even the rides at $12 unlimited is a great deal. We always end up staying way longer than originally planned. Great splash pad. My 5 and...More

Hello, I do believe that there are wheelchairs available on arrival for those that may be in need of them. They are free to use within the park. There is also a water wheelchair that can be used in the splash pad.

Campgrounds near Storybook Gardens? Or hotels? (4 Replies)
Planning a trip to Storybook Gardens with friends (and kids) this summer and am looking for places to camp. Is there anything close by? If there aren't any campgrounds close by, any hotel recommendations that are near the gardens? Thanks

Response fromTobie|
Probably the closest properties and the most reasonably priced will be those that are found on Wellington Rd near the 401 going into London. Everything around Storybook Gardens is residential and though the downtown hotels are closer, they will be more costly if they're reputable and recommended. Here are the reviews..... tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g154995-London_Ontari… You can use the interactive map to locate all the hotels/motels as well. Hope that helps......

Niagara falls with kids - what to do and getting to Wash DC (1 Replies)
We will be driving to Washington DC by way of Niagara Falls (through Canada). Leaving from Wisconsin and then we were going to do one long day of driving and stay the night in Brantford ON. Then make our way into Niagara Falls. We will basically have 1 1/2 days in Niagara Falls before we head out to Washington DC. My kids are 9, 5, 4. Will there be enough to do there or should we only be there for one full day? Would we be better served to stop in London and stay overnight there and go to...More
