WATERFALLS AND WINERIES

Ahhh! Canada is finally in summer mode and we can’t wait to get going on our favourite outdoor activities. As we all know, summer is such a short season so make sure to get outside as much as you can to explore our vast lands of wheat and mountain peaks, rolling wine regions, stunning waterfalls and more! We know Canada is beautiful, so let’s experience it!

We have a soft spot for Southern Ontario. With beautiful beaches that line the Great Lakes, award-winning wineries you can treat yourself to and northern cottage countries that go on for miles, we have it made and it’s a region that deserves some boasting. Although some people only recognize Hamilton as Ontario’s steel town, it’s incredible to note that it is actually the home of more than 100 waterfalls and big or small, they are all worth a visit. Waking up early when the world is still quiet and all you can hear is the water crashing onto the rocks is the best way to experience these natural beauties.

If you’re a wine lover but can’t make it all the way to Okanagan, BC to fill up your glass with some robust reds and sweet whites, then Niagara’s wine region is the next best place to be. Some of these wineries may not be as big as you’re used to, but the small-batch collections are carefully crafted and are so tasty you’ll start taking Ontario wines seriously. The region is so abundant we’ve even got Mike Weir and Wayne Gretzky getting in on the action! Who can resist a glass from The Great One and the 2003 Masters champ?

And when you feel satisfied from all the wine and cheese, don’t forget to stop off in Niagara Falls where you can admire one of the Seven Wonders of the World (right in our own backyard!!) and enjoy a colorful and eclectic stroll up Clifton Hill.

FUN FACT: Our Great Lakes make up the largest body of fresh water on Earth, accounting for one-fifth of the freshwater surface on the planet. Lake Ontario is the smallest of them all, but one of our greatest metropolises – Toronto a.k.a the 6ix – runs along the shoreline as well as a curious little neighborhood full of colorful beach/gingerbread houses in Grimsby, ON. It’s amazing what we have so close to us and many find it easy to call Lake Ontario home.

And of course, while we get our feet wet at the waterfalls and admire the summer sunsets over Lake Ontario, we’ve always got our SKECHERS on to keep us comfy from morning to night.

But of course, there is so much more to our beautiful country than Southern Ontario. Don’t forget to take on some of our other provinces! You can enjoy stunning mountain views in Squamish, BC, incredible rivers and lavender farms in Montreal and quaint fishing ports in the beautiful and always hospitable Twilingate, New Foundland. No matter what you love to do, Canada has something for you!
