Discover the splendour, riches and the vastness of the province offering vacationers an array of choices.
With so much to look at, it will take a lot more than one visit to take in all the sights and attractions that Ontario has to offer the visitor. It manages to include both Canada`s most populous city (Toronto) and areas so remote that polar bears outnumber humans, and an array of man-made and natural wonders. It has tranquil farm country in the south, but in the midst of that rural landscape is Stratford and Niagara-on-the-Lake, two small towns that stage some of the finest theatre in North America. There`s an incredible wealth of water—four of the five Great Lakes, the St. Lawrence and Ottawa Rivers and 200,000 inland lakes. And there is Niagara Falls, the most famous water spectacle of them all. Much of Ontario`s natural splendour can be traced to the Ice Age, when glaciers carved the Great Lakes and the melting ice left the province a watery land.
Ontario is a prime tourist destination. Ascend the C.N. Tower the world`s tallest structure one day, and go kayaking at Algonquin Provincial Park the next. There is a wide variety of National and Provincial Parks, varied historical sites and displays, and museums and galleries are everywhere. There are also many attractions that cater to families.
After a day of exploring Ontario`s wonders, you can rest assured that there are plenty of welcoming places to spend the night - accommodations that suit any taste and every budget. Stay at a luxurious, big city downtown hotel. Complement small town touring with a night at a charming bed and breakfast or country inn where hospitable hosts make you feel right at home. Coast into a cozy motel just off the highway or check into a spa resort to soothe mind, body and soul. Experience a remote fly-in fishing lodge or wake to the rooster announcing a new day on a delightful farm vacation.
It’s a province where people representing 70 international cultures welcome you to some of the biggest, tallest, longest, most unusual, most exciting of everything. The best thing is you do not have to choose. You can do it all in Ontario.
