- Sandbanks provincial park - one of the nicest beaches I've been to in Canada
- kayaking the thousand islands
- Ottawa - skating the length of the Rideau Canal (sure it's cold, but it's great) and then eating a beavertail (a pastry, not an actual animal!)

I'd say the historic town of Kingston, Ontario - Canada's first capital, gateway to the thousand islands, right on lake Ontario, end of the Rideau canal.......

I also enjoy Algonquin Park IMMENSELY.

Haliburton is awesome - we did some "tree trekking" there, visited a planetarium, and a wolf centre. Great natural scenery.

I, Ray Brown, am a local in Niagara Falls and I would recommend a few sites here like:
Journey behind the falls, Butterfly conservatory, Whirlpool aero car, Whirlpool jet boats/or White water walk, Niagara Parks recreation trail(which travels past manicured parks, botanical gardens, and nature/conservation areas), and if you like golf there are public 18 hole courses.
Check out the Attractions Ontario website at www.attractionsontario.ca.

We visited Canada a couple of years back and one of the best time of my life there. On our vist to Ontario we visited a few places Out of which Niagara Falls was the best experience. The pristine beauty of the falls is so splendid to watch. One just gets so engrossed in it tha he forgets everything else.
For other places to visit we rented a car from ontarioairportcarrentals.com and enjoyed our trip to the fullest. We visited
Butterfly conservatory
Thousand Islands
Royal ontario museum
Algonquin Park
