Information for Travelers
Ontario is located in east-central Canada and borders the United States
and the Great Lakes to the south.
Sights in the provincial capital Toronto include the 553m-tall CN Tower with a revolving restaurant and panoramic views, as well as High Park with a rare oak savannah.
Ontario is home to the country's largest city, Toronto, and the capital Ottawa
, but it also encompasses vast expanses of wilderness and pristine lakes, and contains one of Canada's most visited natural attractions, Niagara Falls.
This huge province, about 15 times the size of the state of Texas
, offers limitless opportunities for travel, adventure and family fun.
Tourists enjoy relaxing at lakeside resorts, paddling or fishing in the lakes and rivers, camping in the parks and seeing some of the country's most iconic landmarks.
During the hot summer months, people visit Ontario to see some of Canada's top museums and galleries.
In winter, while some venture outdoors to enjoy the ski hills, skating rinks, snowmobiling and winter festivals, most turn their attention indoors to hockey games, shopping, restaurants, Broadway shows and other cultural attractions.
The province is known for its Victorian architecture on Parliament Hill and the National Gallery of Canadian and Indian Art.
