Toronto is the largest city in Canada, and it offers everything you would expect to find in a large metropolis. There is a huge selection of restaurants, museums, art galleries, shopping malls - you name it!
Toronto is also famous for its multicultural neighbourhoods. You can find cultural representation from almost everywhere in the world. This creates a unique opportunity to experience a different culture through festivals and ethnic restaurants. Some of the more popular neighbourhoods include Chinatown, Koreatown, India Bazaar, Greektown, Little Italy, and Portugal Village.
Niagara Falls is an incredible creation of nature, consisting of two waterfalls (Horseshoe falls and Niagara falls). They hold the record for having the highest water flow in the world, and often feature on "top 100 places to see in the world" lists.
A visitor who is weary of the city will find plenty of ways to escape the hustle and bustle. Ottawa river and the Rideau Canal are lined with large parks and offer great scenic walks. Throughout the city, there are numerous smaller parks filled with public art.
An outdoor enthusiast will have no problems finding things to do in this area. There are many opportunities for hiking, wildlife watching, camping, and even rock climbing.
The less adventurous can enjoy the boat tours in the Fathom Five National Marine Park, explore the colourful town of Tobermory, and visit the numerous beaches in the area.
The Thousand Islands
The gateway to the islands is the lovely town of Gananoque. From this town, you can drive on the scenic 1000 Islands Parkway, or take one of the boat tours to the Islands. Better yet, take a boat to one of the Islands in the St. Lawrence Islands National Park and stay for the night for a truly unique island camping experience.
