Specific day hikes +/- swimming in southern-central Ontario?

Hi all, the girlfriend and I are planning a trip for the August long weekend, and we'd like to go somewhere where we can do a moderately exertional day hike (i.e. 5-6 hrs or so). We were thinking about heading to the Bruce peninsula, but despite our combined Google-fu, we're having trouble locating specific hikes (as in, "Start at point x, see nice things y, finish at point z") that meet our criteria. We're going to be getting the reference guide to the Bruce from the library, but I was wondering if anyone had specific ideas about good, scenic day hikes that would be feasibly within a 3-4 hour drive of Toronto. Areas other than the Bruce also considered! Bonus points for access to a beach in the area (e.g. on Georgian Bay or a lake). [more inside]

Where should New Yorkers and Washingtonians meet for a summer weekend?

We have done a long weekend at the Delaware shore with friends for the past few summers, and would like to try a new place. We'd like to go somewhere where we can swim with toddlers and babies (so no rough ocean--the Delaware bay was great for this) and is not too far a drive for either of us. [more inside]

Where should we go this summer?

Girlfriend and I are looking to get away this August, and we're looking for destinations. We want to spend ~10 days relaxing, experiencing some natural beauty, being warm, eating delicious food (both of the restaurant variety and the pick-up-bread-and-cheese-from-the-local-vendor variety) and generally unplugging from day-to-day life. Not big partiers, but we'd frequent the local cafe/pub. Something like a little cottage in the south of France would be our dream, but we're working with a budget of ~$4000 all-inclusive, so France may have to wait. We're 30ish and live in Boston. Idea us please!

Where should newlyweds travel over the Christmas holiday?

Where should newlyweds travel over the Christmas holiday? My fiancée and I are going to spend our first Christmas together as a married couple apart from our families. We are trying to decide where we should go. We aren't looking to do something on a super small budget (like no hostels, shared showers, etc.), but we also can't spend an obscene amount. We enjoy beaches, food, culture, and maybe some adventure. We are going to Mexico for our honeymoon so that is out. We are traveling from NYC if that influences your ideas. We welcome all suggestions. Thanks in advance.
