We stopped at various points along Lake Ontario on our way home from Toronto. We drove parallel to the QEW and drove along the wine country. It was stunning how big Lake Ontario actually is. You can't see the shore on the otherside. We were able to stop at a little beach type area and walk out on the dock... More

My wife and I went out for an early morning walk along the Toronto harbour last week. As a longtime Torontonian, I constantly hear about how its sad that the condo developments have taken over the waterfront. I'm here to say that they should take a walk along the water and see how fantastic it really is. We walked from... More

If you are visiting the Niagara Falls area this is a great place to unwind away from the crowds, take a break, and get a little nature in. It is located in the Niagara on the Lake area were there is great shopping and eating, similar to the Hamptons on Long Island but much more down to earth.

I have had numerous sailing holidays on Lake Ontairio. It is truly a most civilised place to chill and relax. It's so big, beautiful and full of life. I have a couple of wonderful Canadian pals who out of Hamilton have a boat. This gives unique access for us as to the best of my knowledge there are no holiday... More

I've spent lots of time in this park over the years. I use it to walk from the board walk up to stores on Queen. I use it when I access the library. I use it for a shortcut to the dentist's office. I skate at the rink. We played for hours on end with our daughter in the playground... More

It takes your breath away, by the sheer size, variety of activity on it's shores, particularly Naigara on the lake, wineries, cafes and fruit gardens. In fact the drive from Toronto, on the inner road (not th main highway) is the most scenic, with golf courses offering endless vistas of greenery-the most soothing eye "cure". Wander around the cafes and... More
