Popular with tourists throughout the year, Ontario holidays allow you to explore unspoiled natural landscapes and big cities packed with amenities and modern attractions. Containing the national capital and the country's largest city, this east-central province provides a home for nearly 40 percent of Canada's population. Home to a staggering number of lakes (250,000), this playground for nature lovers boasts approximately a third of the world's fresh water. You can spend your entire Ontario vacation driving, walking, skiing, or cycling across the region's sprawling wilderness, but for a well-rounded experience, make sure you spend some time in Toronto, cosmopolitan provincial capital known for its multicultural neighborhoods and outstanding food scene.
