Last part of our fabulous trip to Canada!
It’s already the end of this splendid journey. We will end up in the heart of Canada: Ontario! A vast territory where meadows, farms and forests bordered by large lakes intermingle. It is also the most populated province of the country with nearly 14 million inhabitants. Ottawa is the capital. Come on, I’ll take you there!
Toronto is the rival of Montreal economically speaking. The metropolis alone has more than 6 million inhabitants. It is the most cosmopolitan in the world: more than half of the inhabitants are born abroad. From Chinatown to Greektown, there are 2 of the many neighborhoods that can be found there.
There are plenty of things to do and see in Toronto that are worth a good ten days. You must not leave the city without visiting the underground galleries. With 1,200 shops, it would be the largest shopping center in the world.
It is in the heart of the Downtown that beats the pulse of the city with the New City Hall which consists of two quarter-circle towers and a third flying saucer.
Toronto’s gay and lesbian community is one of the largest and most dynamic in the world and an entire village dedicated to them. The Gay Village pours out on trendy bars, shops and restaurants where the impulses of a society freed from taboos are affirmed.
Niagara Falls, a must-see place in Ontario, is all designed for tourists to see these famous waterfalls from every point of view. The Canadians made a mini Las Vegas with the falls in the center. The Table Rock is a huge balcony overlooking the falls. It’s free to make the most of this grandiose show.
Capital of Ontario, it’s nothing special. But for the more adventurous, you can enjoy haunted circuits!
Located 250 km from Toronto, this huge provincial park almost as big as Corsica will dazzle you with its largely wild nature pierced by more than a thousand and a half lakes. Here no car, we visit on foot or by canoe.
About 2000 black bears populate the park. You will be able to see with a little luck beavers, deer, fallow deer or even wolves …
It is the oldest city in Ontario. It was founded in 1673 by the French under the name of Cataraqui. It has UNESCO World Heritage Fortifications.
This is where our journey to Canada ends. I hope these articles have made you want to go! 🙂
