Sights Near Toronto


The most popular day trip or overnight from Toronto is Niagara Falls, which is just 80 miles (130 km) southwest of the city, taking around 1.5 hours by car. These breathtaking waterfalls attract around 12 million visitors a year and can be experienced from various viewpoints or by boat, for those who are feeling brave and aren’t afraid of getting wet.

Close by Niagara-on-the-Lake and the surrounding area is the birthplace of Ontario’s modern wine industry, with a ‘wine route’ of vineyards to visit, as well as a good selection of B&Bs and restaurants.
