Exploring Ontario

Home to Toronto, the Canadian capital Ottawa and the magnificent Niagara Falls, diverse Ontario is one of Canada’s finest provinces. It is also the second biggest with vast tracts of land and lakeland areas to explore away from the relatively busy cities. Ontario is also bordered by Quebec and Manitoba, with the expansive Hudson Bay to the north and the US border to the south. There are thus lots of daytrip options for those with a car.

Niagara Falls and Toronto are the main draws to Ontario, both of which have excellent facilities and hotels for tourists, including the three-star Bond Place Hotel in central Toronto and the Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls Fallsview at the falls. Toronto is also the biggest city in Canada, a multicultural hotspot with endless shopping and sightseeing, while Ottawa is more formal and offers refined dining. French-speaking Montreal is also an easy jaunt by car from Ottawa, while access to Lake Superior—the largest freshwater lake in the world—is straightforward.

Sights nearby

Most people visit the south where Toronto, Ottawa and the Niagara Falls reside. These contain the province’s favourite sights and also have a good range of excellent hotels.

Canada’s main urban centre sits right down in the south of the province on Lake Ontario. A multicultural city if there ever were one, it is home to numerous, settled peoples from across the planet and hosts something like 5,000 restaurants and many fashionable suburbs and shopping streets. There’s also a delightful waterfront here—which plays host to the lofty CN Tower—parks and islands, a theatre district and some fine museums. Many visitors to Toronto make the easy trip to Niagara Falls via the town of Hamilton.

The Canadian capital sits at the eastern extremity of Ontario, on the Ottawa River with Quebec the other side. It’s just a few hours by car from Toronto and is noted for its riverside setting and neo-Gothic buildings, with the parliament complex being especially attractive to the visitor. The Rideau Canal is another of its highlights and tours go along it regularly, covered with ice in winter for skating. Other highlights include the Byward market with its boutiques, stalls and trendy cafés, and the Tulip festival in May. Capital Hill Hotel and Suites is a popular place to stay.

Niagara Falls
These world famous falls on the Niagara River, which drain lakes Erie into Ontario, are worthy of a trip to Ontario on their own merit. There are three falls, with the beautiful Horseshoe Falls residing on the Canadian side and offering the best camera shots. Get on the famous Maid of the Mist boat tour to cruise beneath the falls, or head over to the American side and explore the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. There are towns on either side, with Canada offering the best facilities.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

With the influx of folks from around the world, Ontario’s cities are no stranger to diversity, especially the Toronto area which is home to a massive variety of Chinese, Indian and Italian foods—Baldwin Street and Chinatown are best. There are also many quality eateries in the Cabbagetown area, which is good for making merry, too, with beers from Europe and North America. Toronto has the best shopping in Canada by a country mile, its vast malls being accessible by tunnels and subways during the frigid winters.

Public transport

Ontario has several airports with international connections; Toronto Pearson International Airport is the main hub of air traffic. Flights arrive here from all over the world. VIA Rail also serves Toronto and Ottawa as well as the Niagara Falls, plus there are also services in the north with Ontario Northland Rail. Greyhound buses provide the most economical travel, while getting about towns is chiefly by subway, light rail and bus.
