    Ajax, the vibrant jewel from Ontario

    Meet Ajax, middle name “vibrant.” It’s easy to see why, given that the southern Ontario town is so packed with character. Named in honor of the HMS Ajax, a Royal Navy cruiser in World War II, the town has graduated from cute small town to grown up superstar. There’s a lot going here, and you’ll want to book that Ajax vacation rental ASAP to enjoy a little bit of everything. Whether your passion lies in history, shopping, or entertainment, you’ll find all—and so much more—in this friendly city.

    More than basic, Ajax taps into it all

    More than just big box stores, the shopping scene in Ajax is especially impressive—particularly if you’ve got a thing for collecting cutesy items when you travel. After browsing the charming boutiques and before settling back into your Ajax vacation rental, head straight for a comedy club, or even enjoy a wild horse race at Ajax Downs. Spending time outdoors, particularly along the waterfront, is a wonderful way to glean a refreshed appreciation for the city. The vast parks provide perfect birdwatching and stargazing opportunities, but they’re also perfect if you just want to take a walk with the family.

    In Ajax, history and art are entwined

    If you’re a history buff, charming Pickering village will likely take your breath away. The former 19th-century Quaker Settlement today serves as home to hip shops and restaurants, but still retains a certain old-world vibe. There’s also a restored historic church nearby. Though there are always art shows available, it’s worth a visit to the Rotary Room at the Ajax Public Library Main Branch for a browse through the area’s best local artwork. Perhaps most impressive are the public art displays that include everything from quilts and murals to sculptures and metalwork.

    Lakeside location with fabulous weather

    If your goal is to enjoy some spectacular weather, a summertime visit—specifically during July—is your best bet. It’s around then that temperatures top out at about 70 degrees. Remember, you’re near the lake, so it won’t get too hot—and conversely, winter will be warmer than you might otherwise expect. That said, it’s not “warm,” exactly, and if you happen to book your Ajax vacation rental anytime between December and March, you can expect a few flakes to fall. The sun usually shines year round, making for a city with a very uplifting disposition.

    An unspoiled world of beauty in Lake Ontario

    The city, which is bordered by Lake Ontario, a conservation area, and a pair of creeks, offers unspoiled views and a surprising amount of parkland. From nearly any point, you can enjoy enviable views, often in the shadows of thick forests and greens. There’s also a reliable asphalt trail where visitors can jog and take in the scenery. Duffins Creek at the Greenwood Conservation Area provides space for picnicking and fishing. The conservation spot is particularly impressive for its lush greenery, and it’s known as an ideal spot for watching the sunset.
