Ontario is a province packed with natural wonders and surreal places to explore. Fortunately, a number of these other worldly spots are within a reasonable drive of Toronto. From waterfalls to grottos, there’s plenty to astound the senses within a short trip of the city.
Here are five surreal wonders to explore near Toronto.
The Grotto at Bruce Peninsula Park
It takes a bit of work to access the Grotto at Bruce Peninsula Park, but is it ever worth it.
Access to the Badlands themselves was restricted in 2015 as a plan is hatched to protect this natural wonder while also allowing the public to enjoy it.
The Hamilton area is blessed with numerous dramatic waterfalls, but my top choice is always Tews Falls.
Bon Echo Provincal Park
The Mazinaw Pictographs are located on a soaring 100 metre cliff at Bon Echo Provinicial park that’s stunning enough in its own right.
Ontario isn’t exactly short on caves, but few match Bonnechere for pure aesthetics.
