Side Trips from Toronto Feature


Top Reasons to Go

The Falls: Niagara Falls' amazing display of natural power is Ontario's top attraction. See them from both the U.S. and Canadian sides.

Shakespeare and Shaw: A couple of long-dead British playwrights have managed to make two Ontario towns boom from May through October with the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford and the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Wineries: The Niagara Peninsula has an unusually good microclimate for growing grapes; most of the more than 60 wineries have tastings.

The great outdoors: Ski at resorts north of Toronto; canoe backcountry rivers in Algonquin Provincial Park; hike or bike the Niagara-to-Lake-Huron Bruce Trail or the Niagara Parkway along the Niagara River.

Edible Ontario: Niagara-on-the-Lake and Stratford are both renowned for their skilled chefs who serve culinary masterpieces created with farm-fresh ingredients.
