Beautiful Niagara Falls
When is the best time to visit Ontario, Canada? We were thinking of taking a vacation to Ontario next year, but we are not sure when would be the best time.
A. Deciding which would be the best time to visit Canada would depend upon what you like to do, and where in Ontario you plan to visit. If you want peace, quiet and seclusion and time to spend in isolated, uninhabited areas with rivers and lakes, then I would suggest planning your trip to the Algonquin National Park area.
If you prefer to be closer to civilization, there are many cities and towns that offer interesting things to see and do - and of course, you wouldn't want to miss Niagara Falls!
It is easy to get to Niagara Falls in a couple of hours from Toronto, and while you are there, there is something for everyone - from the Falls themselves, to the Maid of the Mist boat ride, the Botanical Gardens, quaint Niagara-on-the-Lake.
There are also Wineries where you can take a tour and sample some of our fine Niagara Wines, which is popular with tourists during the summer months.
There are also several small towns and villages that are fun and interesting to visit, and my favourites include, St Jacobs, Sparta, Port Stanley, Port Dover, and Bayfield. Collingwood is also a nice place to visit at any time of year, as well as Brantford and London.
