Destination guide

Milton offers an authentic slice of Toronto life

So, you're looking to enjoy all the bucket-list delights of Toronto – the CN Tower, Ripley's Aquarium, Canada's Wonderland, and the leafy banks of Lake Ontario – but don't want to vacation in the heat of the big city? No problem. Milton vacation rentals hide on the sleepy, workaday outskirts of the Greater Toronto Area. They not only offer speedy train access to the enjoyments of the city, but also quiet, local restaurants, welcoming bars, urban parks, a buzzing Main Street, and farmers' markets to boot.

Things to do

Head into Toronto for big name attractions

Hop the Go Rail Milton Line to make your way to the heart of the Greater Toronto Area. It doesn’t take long, and the attractions on the menu there are world-class to say the least. Look up – that's the soaring CN Tower with its glass floors and soaring lookouts. Delve into the exhibits of the Art Gallery of Ontario – masterworks by Ruben lurk behind the majestic architecture. Check out the Ontario Science Centre – misty rainforests and swirling solar systems await to wow the kids. And that's not even mentioning the acclaimed Ripley's Aquarium of Canada, which has snapping sharks and glimmering coral gardens.

Activities

Milton is a hub for activities in Toronto

Because Milton vacation rentals offer a quieter, more lived-in base on the western edge of the Greater Toronto Area, it's likely you'll need to make a beeline to nearby districts to enjoy the countless pursuits that a vacation in Toronto promises. Don't worry – they aren't far. Shopping abounds in the seemingly endless malls of neighboring Mississauga, for example, while there are golf courses by the bucket load dotting the flats just on the outskirts. And for those who came here to wonder at the majesty of Niagara, those crashing waterfalls are only a day-long excursion away to the south.

Weather

Sun yourself in Milton

There's no question about it: Milton really comes out of its shell in the summer months. The bustling strips of Main Street are host to countless parades and festivals when the holidays swing around, and that's not even mentioning the delights of the greater Lake Ontario region between the months of June and September. Book you Milton vacation rentals then to be in with the best weather and the top local events, and to dodge the shiver-inducing winters that hit these parts between November and March.

Natural features

Milton is parked between Ontario’s plains and waters

Milton occupies the far western fringes of the Greater Toronto Area. A dash of green space filled with parks, golf courses, and country clubs separates it from the city proper, encasing the town in a low-lying capsule of farm fields and creeks. One of the real natural draws of the town is Rattlesnake Point. This charming country park is topped with the stony outpost of Buffalo Crag, has campsites and woods and wild turkeys. Meanwhile, the other side of town is home to Bronte Creek, where swimming ponds and historic yurts pepper the maple groves.
