Destination guide

Mississauga always offers a warm Canadian welcome

Mississauga isn't just one of the largest suburbs of Toronto. It's also one of the first places that many a visitor to Canada will see. That's because it's home to the Pearson International Airport – the busiest in the country. It's also an interesting, lived-in section of the big city, imbued with historic Port Credit, which spills into Lake Ontario in a medley of cool shopping boutiques and boho coffee bars. And don't forget to add in the pretty waterfall parks, the bustling strips of the Streetsville neighborhood, and plenty of Mississauga vacation rentals that are perfect for basing a family trip to Hogtown.

Things to do

Discover historic districts in Mississauga

The Port Credit historic district is considered one of the main attractions in Mississauga. It's good news for family travelers there, with blues festivals, the Mississauga Music Walk of Fame, pretty Lakefront Promenade, and oodles of shopping all converging on the edge of Lake Ontario. Other visitors will love the Square One Shopping Centre, where one of the largest arrays of retail outlets in Toronto beckons. And then there are the quaint recreation pubs and taverns of Streetsville, not to mention the beautiful cityscape views from the Jack Darling Memorial Park.

Activities

Mississauga is brimming with things to do

From al fresco festivals and football screenings on the events stage of Celebration Square during the summer, to regional hockey showdowns in the Hershey Centre, Mississauga certainly has its fair share of things to dotting its calendar. And while the lookout towers and endless sightseeing of Toronto center lurks just a little to the east, the town still manages to cling to its visitors with the promise of wild Lake Ontario beaches, boat trips on the water, and even day-long excursions out to the see the wonders of Niagara Falls.

Weather

Summer living in Mississauga

Dodge out of the icy winter months and opt to hit the banks of Lake Ontario during the summertime. Searching for your Mississauga vacation rentals between May and September isn't just about getting the top weather; long days of sun, summer breezes, and high temperatures. It's also about finding this part of the Toronto metropolis in full swing, with all the street parties of the Waterfront Festival in June, and the Southside Shuffle jazz fest jigging in the late season.

Natural features

Lakeside enjoyments in Mississauga

Follow the bends of the Credit River as it squeezes its way through the residential districts and shopping malls of the city towards the coveted Mississauga vacation rentals in Port Credit. You'll eventually come to the wide banks of Lake Ontario. This sloshing, swelling body of water is where the locals go for their R&R, and where the manicured lawns of spots like the Jack Darling Memorial Park offer sweeping panoramas of the Toronto Downtown. And if you're ready to break away from the city, the bucket-list cataracts of Niagara Falls await just 2 hours' drive around the same shores.
