Yes it’s got 25,000 freshwater lakes and thousands of miles of breathtaking wilderness, but beautiful Ontario also houses two of the country’s most significant cities. The provincial capital of Toronto and Canada’s capital city – Ottawa. The vast majority of Ontario’s population live in these two metropolitan hubs. Toronto is an easy-to-reach start point for your Eastern Canada adventure. You’ll get the best views of the city from 346 metres up from the Indoor Lookout Level of the renowned CN Tower. And then of course there’s Niagara, not to mention the pretty waterside villages and towns that are scattered across the province.

When to Go to Ontario
From spring and fall amid the lakeside forests, to summer overlooking the mighty Niagara and winter skiing the slopes of Blue Mountain, there’s never a bad time to visit Ontario. For pretty landscapes and fewer crowds, particularly in Ottawa and Toronto, visit April-May or September-October. Summer is also a great time to experience the cultural events of the cities, not to mention bustling markets. If you’re looking to save some cash or hit the slopes, winter is ideal.
