Thread Name: BS: Ozzie Catter coming to Ontario
Subject: RE: BS: Ozzie catter seeks info on Ontario
I grew up near Niagara Falls and it really is a 'must see' ... and easily done, I would think, by public transit. Try to catch a show at the Shaw Festival in Niagara on the Lake. (Is there still a summer ferry across the lake from Toronto?)

If you get a car and want something most tourists don't see, drive about 2 hours north east of Toronto to the Petroglyphs Provincial Park up above Peterborough on Stony Lake. I'd never been (tho not far from my mother's home turf) and went with a friend last time I was home. We both thought they were wonderful - a completely different experience from the Falls, but just as moving.

And try to get west of Toronto to St Jacobs/Kitchener/Waterloo area. The farmers' markets are worth visiting. (I went to Uni. around there.)
