Ontario is one of the southern provinces of Canada. It’s the most populated province, as 40 % of Canada’s population lives here. It is also a famous historic place, with a full range of attractions, touristic hotspots and travel opportunities.
One of the province’s most important natural sightseeings, that Ontario is famous for, is obviously Niagara Falls. Millions of tourists come to see this attraction and walk along the magnificent landscapes every year. Niagara Falls consists of three waterfalls that flow in this area. Together they form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in North America. It is stunning, beautiful and also beneficial in the terms of recreation and industry.
Another “must see” here is the CN Tower, one of the most recognized across the globe. It is 553 meters high, lit up at night and can be seen from every angle of the city. The view from the Tower is astounding, looking over the whole city and the lake.
Tourists also love to explore the provincial and national parks. In the south part of the province you can travel through the deep forests of Algonquin, French River, Killarney Provincial Parks, Bruce Peninsula National Park, etc.
However, Ontario is famous not only for its nature, but its museums. The Royal Museum in downtown is one of the largest museums that feature scientific exhibits as well as natural history of the world. The National Gallery in Ottawa, which is also well known, contains the masterpieces of popular artists. This part of Canada also has the Art Gallery, which is prestigious beyond the country, as it hosts amazing collections of African and Oceanic Art.
One of the sightseeings also include Wonderland, which is 30 kilometers northwest of Toronto’s city center. It is a huge park that provides different thrill rides and roller coasters. Children adore Dinosaur Park and water parks, as well as live shows that are usually shown in summer.
The area is also famous for Muskoka, which is located around Lake Muskoka and various other popular lakes. It is full of cottages, resorts and marinas. Tourists, as well as locals usually spend holidays here, in the surroundings of rocky shores and pine trees.
