Ontario Places to Visit

Ontario Places to explore!

Dreaming of the bright city lights? Or longing for the charming antique stores and tea shops of a small town retreat?

Perhaps an escape to the wild is on your agenda?

Or maybe you like variety on your vacation? Some fast-paced city action followed by a few days unwinding in the countryside?


If it’s big city or small town adventures you’re after, check out Cities and Towns for an overview, or just go directly to Toronto, Ottawa, Niagara Falls, Canada, Hamilton. For smaller towns, try Orillia or Picton in trendy Prince Edward County in Eastern Ontario.

My page on Shopping lists some great spots where you can find excellent one-of-a-kind boutiques, antique malls, farmers markets and more. Some of the places I suggest: Stratford, Niagara on the Lake, St Jacobs, and of course Toronto. But I don't talk about just the obvious spots. You'll find information about the LOCALS shop as well: like Kensington Market, or Little India in Toronto, or Dundas in the Hamilton area.

Nature lovers, feel free to heed the call of the wild and head right over to Outdoor Adventures now. Surely you've heard about Algonquin Park? Want to learn more about our parks? Start here: Parks.
