You Can Go Glow-In-The-Dark Kayaking On Lake Ontario & It's Worth A Trip Across The Border

This activity — dare we say it — actually makes us want to road trip to Toronto for a long weekend.

The beauty of glow-in-the-dark kayaks is that they make it easier to kayak at night. This can either be super tranquil or a full-on party — thanks to the neon lights and Bluetooth speakers — depending on your mood.

Imagine sitting in a boat on the lake as you watch the sunset from your kayak-canoe. Then, you start paddling around, your boat illuminating your path, as the city skyline lights up before your eyes. Play some music on the Bluetooth speakers and—pure magic. 

The Quebec-Ontario border is open and it's really only a five-and-a-half-hour drive, so it could be well worth it to hop on the 401 and give your summer a glow up.

On October 1, Amazon Prime is coming out with its latest All Or Nothing sports documentary series which will chronicle the 2020-2021 Toronto Maple Leafs season.

And while that's all fine and dandy for the Maple Leafs, some hockey fans have absolutely roasted the Leafs about their new documentary because they've rightfully pointed out that the Leafs end up with, well, nothing.
