The Highway 401 Alternative

The Weekend Route is your highway 401 alternative onto a scenic lakefront roadway from bygone days that still retains the experiences, flavours, and characters of a highly relaxed time – once entering The Weekend Route your weekday drifts into the background and you immediately slow down and enjoy that Saturday feeling.

The Weekend Route starts in Clarington, Ontario travelling East, and Lancaster in the West, a scenic Lake Ontario waterfront drive through eclectic cities and rural small towns – which can be picked up anywhere along the way.

Our tourism partners will be adding their regional experiences to this route to allow travellers to search The Weekend Route by date and available experiences to curate when and how they wish to enter the route and experience their adventures along the way.
