What are the best places to visit in Ontario?

City dwellers will be drawn to Toronto, Canada’s largest city, a world-renowned capital bustling with culture, art, nightlife and great restaurants. Check out the CN Tower’s death-defying space walk, catch a live theater performance, or check out a hip restaurant - and that’s just the first day! It will be difficult to run out of things to do in Toronto, but that’s not all the province offers. Those looking for cabin rentals in Ontario won’t be disappointed.

For lakeside rest and relaxation, consider Lake Ontario. The smallest of the Great Lakes, Lake Ontario boasts some of the best beaches in Ontario, including Sandbanks Provincial Park in Prince Edward County, which is also home to more than 40 wineries. Visitors can experience Lake Ontario’s magic from the bustle of Toronto, or across the water in the tranquility of Centre Island. For a different type of experience, find cottages for rent on Ontario’s southern waters and check out the infamous Niagara Falls.

Heading north, things are just as beautiful. Lake Huron offers country houses and cabins for rent in a more rustic side of Ontario. In this region filled with gorgeous bays, visitors can find log cabin rentals in which to relax, connect with nature, and explore the landscapes that surround them. A great option is Collingwood, a historic town on the water offering summer fun and a plethora of winter adventures - skiers of all levels will enjoy the nearby Blue Mountain Ski Resort. There’s something for the rest of the family, too - Collingwood has great local breweries, hiking trails, relaxing spas, ATV courses, golfing, and even a roller coaster nearby.

Heading west from Collingwood (or North from Toronto), explorers will find a region of pristine beauty, quiet and majestic forests. Some of the best cottage rentals in Ontario are to be found across the 1,600 lakes that make up the Muskoka District. Known as Ontario’s ‘cottage country,’ Muskoka is a place of worldwide fame - for good reason. Adorable villages and towns, fantastic boating, farmers markets, and thriving local communities are only a few of the draws that have made Muskoka a beloved destination for visitors from around the world. With diverse accommodation options to fit every budget, from luxury cottage rentals to small cabins and chalet rentals, this region of Ontario offers something for everybody.

Further west, nestled between the provinces of Ontario and Quebec lies Ottawa, Canada’s capital city. Ottawa is home to many key government buildings as well as a host of cultural institutions, universities, and museums featuring stunning historical architecture. Visitors can wander around ByWard Market and take bike tours during the warmer months, ice skate the city’s canals in winter, or learn about Canada’s history at the National Museum of History. Ottawa is a delightful city full of hidden surprises and adventures ready to be discovered.

And that’s only the beginning - Ontario is a diverse province that offers exciting activities throughout the year. With a wide range of vacation rentals available, from city condos and peaceful lakeside cottages to ski chalets and secluded log cabins in the woods, visitors need not look far to find their perfect stay in Ontario.
