Ontario Natural Wonders

Not much could be more satisfying than seeing a natural wonder in the province of Ontario. The side of Niagara Falls called the Horseshoe Falls stands 17 stories high and thunders water into the active Niagara River. The Niagara Escarpment is a 450-mile limestone path through wilderness, and hike along Bruce Trail, weaving its way along the escarpment. The Great Lakes, awe-inspiring freshwater lakes formed from glaciers, bring forth great recreational opportunities. Manitoulin Island is the largest island within a freshwater lake, and is a great vacation destination. Chances are that natural beauty will surround your Ontario vacation rental.
