People travel to different places in order to escape the pressures of work, school and other activities. Each of us, even for just a day, wants to be away from the stressors of our daily life. But what is the definition of escape? What really is away? Is it somewhere where you can be in peace and serenity with nature or somewhere where you can be adventurous and sporty with different extreme activities? Whatever your idea of away is, one thing is for sure you’ll know it when you finally visit Ontario in Canada.
Surrounded by Manitoba on the west, Hudson Bay and James Bay on the north, Quebec on the East and United Sates on the south, Ontario is the largest province in Canada. The southern part is the bulk of the province’s population, manufacturing and agriculture. It is where Toronto, the capital city, lies and the center for tourist attraction. On the other hand, the northern part is sparsely settled and dependent on mining and forestry. The word Ontario is of Iroquorian origin and was given to the most easterly of the great lakes in 1941. Aside from it having Canada’s largest population it is also well-known for its tall buildings and skyscrapers.
Splurge and have a good find at the Eaton Centre and Chinatown, which offer foreign and branded quality products that fit your needs. Visit the unique structure of Ontario’s city hall and legislative building, home of the city’s political system. Feel the fresh air and be dazzled by the natural beauty of Niagara Falls and Humber bay. Experience the first class rail road system of Toronto’s subway consisting of underground and elevated railway lines. Lastly, go downtown in Toronto’s Harbourfront and stroll by the water’s edge and don’t miss the iconic Toronto skyline with CN Tower remaining to be the tallest free-standing structure in the western hemisphere.
So if you’re someone who loves architecture and is not afraid of great heights, then Ontario is perfect for you. With its extraordinary landscapes, stunning buildings, and world class shopping destinations, the place will surely sweep you off your feet ̶ the great escape you’ve never imagined and that will surely make you want to go back again.
