Search the best hotels in Ontario
Ontario has some of Canada's biggest areas of wilderness yet is also the country's most cosmopolitan state. How can this be? Because it's huge. Larger than France and Spain combined, it has acres of forests, miles of empty hiking trails, dozens of towering waterfalls and over 250,000 lakes. Yet over a third of Canadians also live here, most in either state capital, Toronto, or Ottawa, the country's capital; both vibrant cities. The best places to stay in Ontario make the most of either its cosmopolitan cities or its wild beauty; sometimes both.
What Not To Miss
- Top of the 'natural-beauty' sights has to be Niagara Falls, easily visited in a day-trip from Toronto, though we'd recommend you stay in either Niagara by the Lake or Niagara Falls itself if you want to overnight.. But the state boasts other spectacular waterfalls. Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park, for example, near the vibrant city of Thunder Bay in the south-west, has 40-metre high falls. South-western Ontario is also the area to head to for freshwater beaches, watersports and fantastic bird-watching.
- Ontario has dozens of Provincial Parks to satisfy outdoor adventurers. Killarney Provincial Park is considered to offer some of the world's best kayaking with over 50 lakes, while hikers may prefer Mississagi Provincial Park, north of Elliot Lake, with its mix of hemlock forests, aspen woods, sandy beaches and empty back country. Equally, Quetico Provincial Park is a wild and empty destination with over 2000 lakes, hiking trails through forests and towering cliffs, plus cross-country skiing trails. Good bases for outdoors adventurers include Wellington on Lake Ontario, Kemble on Lake Huron and Port Carling on Lake Joseph.
- Ontario's cities offer a striking contrast to the wild beauty of the back country. State capital Toronto's iconic sight is the soaring needle of the 533-metre-high CN communication tower with its revolving restaurant and stunning views.
- Equally stunning is Casa Loma, a massive architectural confection of battlements and turrets built at the beginning of the 20th century as the private home of a wealthy financier.
- Other sights include the downtown Distillery District of warehouses converted into galleries, boutiques and restaurants, the Victorian St Lawrence Market with over 50 speciality food stalls, and the Royal Ontario Museum of Natural History. Scarborough Bluffs Park gives stunning views over Lake Ontario while Kew Beach is great for a stroll.
- Ottawa is no less exhilarating with Parliament Hill's Victorian architecture, the striking-looking National Gallery and the contemporary-designed Canadian War Museum. Leave plenty of time to explore the Canadian Museum of History, full of hi-tech exhibits tracing the country's history. It also includes a 3D IMAX theatre and the excellent Canadian Children's Museum.
One thing's for sure, the best places to stay in Ontario guarantee you will always have plenty of things to do, right on your doorstep.
