Ontario Vacation Destinations:
Places You'll Always Remember!

Ontario Vacation Destinations is a sister site to Grand Cayman Wanderer.

We couldn't call it 'Ontario Wanderer' because there's already a blog called that. Our theme, however, remains the same -- to show and tell you what you will find when you visit.

Our wandering will, we hope, provide you with some ideas of your own when it comes to choosing your next vacation.

Ontario is a great place to visit in all the seasons.

From skiing and snowmobiling in winter, sailing and sunbathing in summer, to hiking and Fall Colors tours in autumn, Ontario has something for everyone.

Major Cities as Ontario Vacation Destinations

The largest of the Ontario vacation destinations is Toronto, one of the world’s great cities.

Ontario shares the Capital Region of Canada, Ottawa-Hull, with Quebec. Ottawa is on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River and Hull on the Quebec side. Ottawa is a human-sized capital with few of the giant buildings that make other cities so soulless.

Ando there are many smaller but equally fine cities to visit, such as Kingston, Oshawa, Sault St. Marie, and many others.

Ontario Regions and Outdoors

Ontario is also home to Canada’s premier wine region in Niagara, which is also world famous for its waterfalls (you might have heard of them:). As well, Niagara hosts an annual George Bernard Shaw theater season that runs from April to November.

Ontario is also about lakes, and not just the Great Lakes of Ontario, Erie, Huron, and Superior. There are thousands, possibly tens of thousands, of smaller lakes, though some of them, like Nipigon, Nipissing, and Simcoe aren’t so small. The lakes are summer home for  many Ontarians, a mirror for fall colors in autumn, and natural tracks for snowmobilers and cross-country skiers in winter.

Finally, there are the vacation destination in the other 90% of Ontario – the North. Barely inhabited, with great forests stretching all the way to the end of the tree line and even then stretching out into tundra, Ontario’s northland is a magnet for hunters and anglers who flock there each season to enjoy the wilderness experience. Small communities like Moosonee and Moose Factory welcome a few hundred visitors each year.
