Amazing things to see in New York, Toronto – Planning your holiday itinerary

There are numerous things to do in Ontario, NY, whether you're new or been here for some time. Here's a list of fun things to do around the city!


Casey Park

There's nothing quite like a calm and peaceful stroll, either with your family or just by yourself! Casey Park is very popular in Ontario, and is a great place to get out with family and friends to enjoy the activities outdoors. You can spend an entire day at the park as it boasts s9x ball fields, several picnic tables and opportunities to swim, boat and even hike! You can also rent a canoe or a paddle boat if you want to get on the water or simple enjoy some fishing by the shore. There are also numerous events that happen at the park, especially during summer months.


Foreman Park

Foreman Park is another great park for those in New York, Ontario! While it is not in the city itself, it's extremely popular, especially for those wanting to enjoy the beautiful Lake Ontario. Ideal for those looking for some peace and quiet, this park will not disappoint. There are plenty of grills and benches allowing you to have family picnics! The main and best attraction at the park is the wide open beaches along Lake Ontario, ideal for those photographs. The location is also popular among fisherman and photographers because of beautiful scenery and location.


Niagara Falls

Just over 3 hours from Pan Pacific Toronto, which boasts some of the best hotel suites in Toronto, Niagara Falls is one of the oldest state parks to exist. Opened in 1885, this park is home to massive waterfalls and five islands on the Niagara River, covering a whopping 400 acres which includes nature and bike trails, scenic landscapes and picnic facilities. The Observation Tower gives a panoramic view of all three falls! Along with this, there are also sightseeing tours which are available, including boat tours and other experiences.


Whirlpool Rapids

A couple of miles below the American Falls, the river changes course forming a whirlpool. These rapids are some of the world's most dangerous, with 100,00 cubic feet of water moving through the very narrow Whirlpool Gorge each second! Visitors can hike down a series of paths to observe what once used to be the Great Gorge Railway. A more enjoyable way to view the whirlpool is the Whitewater Walk, which is also wheelchair accessible. However, you need to first visit Canada's Niagara Park in Ontario!


Aquarium of Niagara

A great option for families with kids, you will find over 200 species of aquatic animals at the Aquarium of Niagara along with 30 educational exhibits. Visitors can also choose to have an animal encounter, which is a hit among the kids. There's also sea lion shows, harbour seal presentations and penguin feedings. The best part about this aquarium is that is serves as an animal rescue center for injured wildlife!
