Attractions for all in awe-inspiring Ontario

With its never-ending forests and gleaming blue lakes, Ontario beckons hikers and nature lovers with its awe-inspiring natural splendor. But there's far more to the popular Canadian province than the great outdoors alone. Ontario boasts vibrant cities, including Ottawa, the Canadian capital known for its monumental Parliament Hill, and Toronto, with its impressive CN Tower that pierces the skyline on the shores of Lake Ontario. Between them, Ottawa and Toronto boast a trove of world-class museums, cultural hubs and some of the best Ontario vacation rentals around, perfect for city slickers and outdoor types alike.

Fresh air and adventure in Ontario

If you're seeking fresh air and adventure, Ontario vacation rentals provide the perfect basecamp for an action-packed itinerary. You can hike the Sleeping Giant mesas near Thunder Bay, stroll among the wooded grandeur of Temagami's Old Growth Forest or explore the shores and forests of Bruce Peninsula National Park. If that sounds like too much effort, you could always kick back on Ontario's sandy freshwater beaches. Come winter, it's all about skiing on the slopes of Blue Mountain and other nearby resorts, while year-round fun always awaits in lively Ottawa and Toronto

Ontario is the gateway to Niagara Falls

You'll find most of Ontario's top attractions in Ottawa and Toronto. Visit Parliament Hill in Canada's capital, known for its stately gothic grandeur, and the nearby National Gallery of Canada, which boasts an incredible trove of historic and contemporary artworks. The Rideau Canal is famous for becoming a "skating street" when it freezes over in winter, while diners can enjoy a 360-degree view from Toronto's striking CN tower. Ontario's best-known attraction is shared with neighboring New York state. Straddling the border between the United States and Canada, Niagara Falls ranks amongst the world's most-iconic natural wonders and is even more breathtaking when viewed from a helicopter.

From snow to sun in immense Ontario

Due to the province's immense scale, weather conditions can vary depending on the location of your Ontario vacation rental. Typically, there are 4 distinct seasons here, with January often the coldest month of the year and July the warmest and most humid. Winters tend to be snowy, which is great news for winter sports fans, though they're generally colder and longer in the northern part of the province than in the south. Check the weather before you travel and plan your packing appropriately.

Postcard-perfect scenery in eye-catching Ontario

When visiting Ontario, you'll want to pack your camera. With its thick, fragrant forests, sandy lakeshores, rolling mountains and cascading waterfalls, the never-ending wilderness is one of Mother Nature's most-beautiful works of art. And that's before you take into account the grandeur of the roaring Niagara Falls. As you'd expect, the province flourishes with native flora and wildlife, with beavers, bears, deer and moose all calling it home. Ontario's scenery changes seamlessly with the seasons and looks particularly spectacular in fall, with its rich orange and red hues, and winter, when it glistens beneath a blanket of snow.
