Ontario Travel Tips
Canada's second-largest province is bound by the arctic shores of Hudson Bay in the north and tempered by the lush banks of the Great Lakes in the south. Shimmering lakes, dense tracts of forest, sublime beaches, undulating hills peppered with vineyards, hidden canyons and seemingly deserted farmlands all find their own plots in the province.
But they leave enough room for the country's largest city, Toronto, as well as its capital, Ottawa. Add to the mix the spectacular and unforgettable Niagara Falls, and you get an idea of just a smidgeon of the diversity on offer here.
