    So many fun activities! I’ve been to Niagra Falls, but not during winter. Looks like an amazing thing to see at that time when everything is frozen. Going behind the falls looks really cool too.

    You had me at Ice Wine Festival, I can’t see how that wouldn’t be a fantastic time. I haven’t had the chance to visit Niagara Falls yet either, so I’d love the chance to check that out too.

    I don’t live too far away, but I still haven’t made it to Ontario! Not really, anyway. I’ve been to Niagara but that’s it haha. This is an awesome list! I’ll have to try and check some of these off whenever I get to explore the area more!

    Since you have really collected a great collection of ideas. If I was going to put it all on holiday (of course, depending on the season), then I would spend my time in Ontario for the next few years. Thank you for this inspiration.

    I’d love to go to Ontario someday. I have relatives in Toronto. These are some great ideas for things to do in Ontario, even in the fall and winter. I think some of the caves would be fun to explore.

    This is an interesting and truly comprehensive list of fun activities and things to do in Ontario. I would especially love to do #41 and take that trek across Ontario’s longest suspension bridge in Blue Mountains — that’s my kind of thing. What a fun adventure! Thanks for the ultimate list of activities in Ontario!
