Ontario Cities, big and small, grand ones and the tiny ones, all of them offer something special for everyone, so come and visit, your winter vacations may never be the same!
In our own travels we visited many beautiful Ontario cities. Last year's ski trip in Quebec took us to our Nation's Capital: Ottawa. Cold sunny day, with crisp air from freezing temperature, and a wonderful memory. Not often, someone from Barrie, Ontario has a chance to see the splendor of the Capital Hill covered in the glistening snow.
Another time we went to one of our best known Ontario Cities,Niagara Falls in the middle of winter. Now that is an experience you don't want to forget! The falls are majestic any time of the year, but winter time is simply magical...
Our winter trips take us sometimes through the Algonquin Park Corridor into the secluded areas of Killaloe and Pembroke. That's where we have our little summer hideaway. Once in the while we will travel through the park and admire the beauty of leafless trees and unspoiled snow. On the way, we visit Huntsville, cozy little town with so much charm and beauty. Little stores on the main street, friendly people and the setting, just perfect!
Perhaps you will travel to one of the spectacular Ontario Cities, London, to take part in their Snowfest or Winter Wonderland Festival, do not forget to make plans to also visit Waterloo and Kitchener on the way. Both are wonderful places to see. If you are a ice sport enthusiast, do make sure to find your way to Waterloo's Rim Park. State of the art facility. Perhaps you may even be lucky to be there during one of many Skate Ontario's Competitions. From there it's only 6 km to the village of St. Jacob's and the wonderful Mennonite country. Enjoy!
Where ever we go, we always admire the splendor and beauty of our own Ontario Cities. Winter time truly is magical and special here. And once you leave the Ontario Cities and enter the Ontario Backcountry... you discover the enchanted winter forests, the glistening, snow covered spruce trees and the quiet and calm of the winter's morning... you will be hooked forever.
