Killarney Provincial Park
Love nature, the campground and outdoor life, Then you have come to the correct place! Not far from Sudbury is the Killarney Provincial Park, a green area of over 600 square km where you can do all kinds of sports, camp, picnic or simply enjoy a little Canadian wilderness. The advice is to spend at least a couple of days inside the park, where you can rent all sports equipment. There are 80km of trails to go through lakes, forests and hills, this is a fairly flat area in Canada so the trails are easily walkable by anyone.
Watch the sunset from Thornbury Pier
Thornbury is a tiny town at the foot of the Blue Mountains, the most important ski resort in Georgian Bay. Its port, however, is truly impressive, with sailing boats, rocks and a pier overlooking Lake Huron (more than a lake it looks like the sea for its extension). In summer it is always full of kids diving and bathing, while during autumn or spring it is easier to find yourself alone. The Thornbury Pier it's the perfect place where to see the sunset and eat ice cream.
Eat a Beaver Tail in the Blue Mountains
Le Blue Mountains they are the meeting place for young people and families, as well as being a ski resort, they are also a beautiful mountain village (which are actually very high hills). Cafes, restaurants, pubs, shops, in the Blue Mountains there is really everything, even one splendid SPA in which to relax. After sunset in Thornbury the advice is to go to the Blue Mountains and taste the Beaver Tails "Beaver tails", the typical Canadian dessert. Although Beaver Tails originated in Ottawa, they are found in many Canadian cities and eating them in the Blue Mountains is even more impressive. They are pancakes with the addition of sugar and ingredients to taste: candied apples, cinnamon, nutella, walnuts, biscuits and the list could be endless.
Take part of the Bruce Trail
Il Bruce Trail is an 885km trail that starts in Niagara and goes all the way to Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula. IS the longest and oldest trail in Canada, for this reason, crossing even just a few kilometers makes you enter the history of the country. In addition to the landscape and history, the Bruce Trail also offers many activities for families with lessons, workshops and games to teach children about the protection of nature.
See a baseball or hockey game in Toronto
Ontario is pure nature, but if after a few days you start to miss the cities, don't worry, Toronto is ready to welcome you with ultra modern architectures, really interesting shops and clubs. One of things to do if you are in Ontario is to see one baseball or hockey game.
Canadians are crazy about hockey, it's the national sport and they don't miss a game, if you happen to be in a pub while the Toronto Maple Leaf play against the Ottawa Senators maybe it's better to find a safe corner because glasses of beer. Seeing a hockey or baseball game at Rogers Center (the only baseball stadium in the world to have a dome that closes in case of rain) is truly an experience not to be missed.
