When thinking of a combination of rolling hills, skyscrapers, and historical homes, these thoughts would probably lead to the city of Markham, Ontario. Markham is a bustling city in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) where heritage meets modern living. When visiting the neighbourhood, it will be easy to find activities to please everyone in a family.

1.Visit Old Railway Stations

Markham GO Station dates back to 1871 making it one of the oldest stations in the city. This is apparent due to its classic design and architecture. While now a community centre, when looking for more of the classic railway and Gothic styled buildings, head to Unionville Go Station. Locust Hill Station is now fittingly apart of the Markham Museum and dates back to 1936 making this a must-see along any journey.

2.Visit the Local Museum

If the railway tour has led to the Markham Museum, it will be worth it to stay a while and learn about the city’s history and culture. The museum is an open-air museum made up of around 30 buildings with gardens to explore. The museum includes permanent and temporary exhibitions including Markham artifacts dating back to 1968.

Whether you are in between houses or in town for business, an extended stay in Toronto can be your ideal home away from home. From afar, you may not be convinced that a furnished apartment can replicate the setup of your actual home. You may have doubts that your furnished apartment won’t be cozy or provide the comforts of your own home. Fortunately, there are many pointers to keep in mind to help ensure you have a pleasant and comfortable stay.

1. Choose an extended stay with a separate bedroom and living space

Extended furnished apartment stays have a variety of setups. Some apartments are designed like a studio apartment whereas others are similar to a one-bedroom apartment. If you are wanting additional space, looking for a room with separate living and sleeping quarters is a good move. This means you won’t have to worry about the amount of items you pack since you’ll have ample space to spread out your belongings. Further, if you are visiting Toronto for business purposes, this provides a separation between your work and bedroom space...->

One of the simple things that often gets overlooked when deciding on corporate housing is how well furnished the apartment is. Most of the time when you are looking into corporate housing, you just verify that it is furnished and move on to other questions. This can often lead to surprise or disappointment when you actually enter your temporary apartment for the first time. Perhaps the apartment doesn't have everything you thought it would or maybe the furniture is dated or just plain ugly. These wouldn't necessarily be a big deal if you were only staying for a few days -you can just tough it out. When you are staying for several weeks or perhaps months, however, this becomes a more significant issue. While you are making your search for the right furnished apartments in the Toronto area, you should always make it a point to look into how well furnished the apartment is.

One of Ontario’s greatest claims to fame is the production of ice wine. This dessert wine is not very common, due to the fact that it requires some very specific conditions in order to grow the grapes and harvest them at the right time. That being said, Canada is one of the world’s largest producers of ice wine, 75% of which is produced here in Ontario. If you will soon be staying in Toronto furnished apartments then you would be doing yourself a disservice by not checking out the Niagara Ice Wine Festival, a celebration of Ontario’s ice wine making tradition.

Need a place to stay while your family’s house is being remodeled? Or perhaps you need a residence while in Toronto for several months due to business. Maybe you are moving to Toronto and need a place to stay while you are relocating to Toronto? There is any number of reasons why you would need a home away from home and if you find yourself in this situation it is typically better to go with furnished apartments rather than extended stay hotels, especially if you plan on staying there for more than a few weeks.

Room to Breath

Perhaps the biggest advantage that makes furnished apartments a better alternative to hotels is that there are more rooms and therefore more privacy if it is more than just you who will be staying there. Should you be bringing the family, everyone is going to need their own space. When they do it leads to a much more harmonious living arrangement, making the whole living situation all the more pleasant.
