Toronto is a great city to start your Ontario fly/drive journey. It is the largest city in Canada and one of the most cultural and lively cities! There is a big emphasis on arts and culture in Toronto with theatre and dining districts. With art galleries, restaurants and the largest variety of theatres in Canada this makes Toronto a very interesting city.

Toronto is very easy to get around, whether by foot, car or public transport. This makes it a suitable destination for everybody!
Niagara Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, is just an hour and a half away from Toronto. It is the perfect stop before hitting the open road after Toronto. Three waterfalls, between the border of Canada and the United States make Niagara Falls. There are multiple ways to experience Niagara Falls close up, with Maid of the Mist and Journey Behind the Falls. For those staying in the area there are casinos, spas, golf courses, nightlife and fine dining. For the little ones, there is also a ferris wheel and a water park inside a hotel to keep them entertained.
