5 Towns You Should Visit In Ontario, Canada

Have you ever considered visiting Canada? If you have, you probably would have thought about visiting a city in the province of Ontario. Well, to many, that city is perhaps Toronto. But other than Toronto (or rather the 6ix), there are more places to visit for adventurers and nature lovers. 

So, what are some of these small towns to visit? Here are five you may want to add to your travel list: 

1. Guelph

Guelph is a 40-minute drive from Toronto and home to the University of Guelph. Other than that, Guelph is a beautiful place with unique natural and architectural features. Downtown Guelph feels similar to an old version of London. And while walking through the city, you may pass through multiple parks and trails near and away from the university. So, if you’re down to experience some nature as well as feel the remnants of an old town, Guelph is definitely your vibe. 

2. Muskoka 

Muskoka is a place filled with cottages, rocks, and forests. It’s perfect for a summer getaway, as there are plenty of places to hike and camp. But it’s also beautiful for a winter visit. The town is also home to Santa’s Village, an amusement park designed similarly to the visualizations of the North Pole. 

3. Wasaga Beach 

Almost every college student in Ontario will say that Wasaga Beach is their place for a quick summer getaway. Though it may seem like a small town initially, there are plenty of beaches to visit and trails to hike. If you want to grab a bite of ice cream, feel free to visit the small shops near the beaches. The best time to visit is Canada Day, as you’ll be able to see and experience some fireworks near the beach. 

4. Collingwood 

Every person growing up in Toronto may have heard of a place called “Blue Mountain.” It’s known to be a simple resort with multiple hills for skiers and snowboarders. But other than that, the town looks just as beautiful throughout the summer. There are lakes and trails and plenty of small businesses to shop from downtown. 

5. Tobermory 

Tobermory is a great place to visit if you’re looking for an escape close to the sea. Flowerpot Island is there — a place filled with fancy rocks that sit offshore. If that’s not enough, visitors can stroll through Bruce Peninsula National Park, a large park with beaches, trees, and trails. It’s also one of the best places to stargaze in Ontario and has such gorgeous scenery. 

Now that you have five places to visit in Ontario, you’ll be surprised by the province’s nature and wildlife. Sometimes, it’s not only about the hustle and bustle but about the diverse scenery outside the city. Which destination have you visited, what was your experience like? We’d love to hear your thoughts and recommendations in the comments. And if you’re planning a trip to Ontario, feel free to ask any questions. Bon voyage!
