Why Should You Visit Ontario, Canada This Summer?

Take a visit to Ontario, Canada!

Ontario has it all. Freshwater beaches, awe-inspiring nature and big city. You can float in the refreshing clear waters, enjoy Shakespeare in the Stratford countryside, paddle the four Great Lakes, or get lost in a wilderness that stretches to the shores of James Bay.

If that wasn’t enough, here are some reasons why Ontario should be on your travel schedule this summer.

Ontario is so vast – Must Visit Ontario


Did you know that Ontario is as big as Texas and Montana united? At nearly 416,000 square miles, you could spend months traversing this vast province and still not see it all. While most of that land is in the sparsely populated northern part of the province, the southern part is dotted with towns and roads that make it easy to get around.

From the extreme north to the wilderness to the cities and beaches of the south, Ontario is a giant playground for those who want to experience unspoiled nature and great culture.

Ontario has the largest freshwater lake in the world – Lake Superior.


If you have not visited the largest freshwater lake in the world, what are you waiting for? Experience the incredible beauty of the coast and wild forests by taking a scenic drive around the north shore of the lake.

In 350 miles, from Thunder Bay to Sault Ste. Marie, Trans-Canada 17 passes through picturesque small towns and sprawling unspoiled beaches.

The provincial park is fantastic – Visit Ontario

Canada’s provincial parks are similar to state parks in the US. They are usually much larger, and many species focus on conservation and conservation beyond camping and recreation.

Ontario has 65 provincial parks with campgrounds (plus many more that protect wildlife or cultural heritage). One of the most famous is Lake Superior, Provincial Park. Here you’ll find two campsites for RVs and tents, plus more than 200 country campsites.

Friendly people – Visit Ontario

Canadians are friendly and helpful, as their reputation suggests. Canadians are always happy to help with a smile, whether you need directions or advice.

Many towns around Ontario have small tourist centers where you can find maps, brochures, merchandise, and lots of helpful knowledge delivered by the friendly staff.

Lakes, lakes and many other lakes

It is impossible to get around Ontario without encountering numerous lakes. First, there are the big ones — four of the five Great Lakes are partly within the borders of Ontario.

Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario are great places to camp and explore nature. While the great lakes may be the most famous, they are far from the only lakes in Ontario.

There are about 250,000 lakes in Ontario! Therefore, almost anywhere you travel around the province, a beautiful fresh lake is nearby.

Two wonderful cities


Ontario boasts Canada’s political capital, Ottawa, and its commercial capital, Toronto. If you need a break from the unspoiled, endless nature around Ontario, these cities will offer a huge amount of culture and nightlife.

Seven National Parks – Visit Ontario

Ontario owns seven unique and beautiful national parks.

There is Pukaskwa National Park, where you can explore the longest undeveloped Great Lakes coastline. Or the Georgian Archipelago National Park, home to 63 islands, provides a protected environment for rare species and abundant wildlife.

Don’t forget Poutine.


You can find Poutine at small “Chip Shops” throughout Ontario.

Go classic with just cheese and gravy, or turn it into a meal with pulled pork, bacon, or lobster. No matter how you get on top, the delicious combination of savory fries, rich gravy and cottage cheese is a must-try!

Wine region

Though not as well known as Napa or Sonoma, Ontario is home to one of Canada’s two major wine-producing regions (the other being southern British Columbia). In the summer months, hike along the Niagara Peninsula Wine Trail to see historic sites and charming towns and stunning farm views and well-stocked tasting rooms.

Most notable is the German-style Eiswein, or icewines, a dessert drink that some call Canada’s “liquid gold.”
