Why wait until visitors come in from out of town to explore the best tourist attractions of your city or town? If you’re taking some time off this summer or fall, it’s a great opportunity to be a tourist at home.

African Lion Safari (Southwestern Ont)
Travel Travel Travel Travel Travel Travel Travel
Have you always wanted to go on a safari in Africa, but haven’t been quite able to make it that far?  The African Lion Safari gives you a chance to experience the animals of the savannah (think lions, cheetah, giraffe, rhinos & more) from the comforts of a car along 9km of a safari trek.  After your ride through the wild, you can stroll through the grounds, see more wild animals & then enjoy the amazing animal shows.
Ever fancy yourself a rockhound?  Have visions of digging up the perfect gem?  The Amethyst Mine Panorama is the largest deposit in Canada & lets visitors dig up their own gems as well as go on guided or self guided tours.  The gift shop has unique amethyst jewellery made with gems found in the mine.  Come for a visit & who knows what you’ll find?!

CN Tower (GTA)
Rideau Hall (Ottawa)
Travel Travel Travel Travel Travel Travel Travel
The CN Tower is one of the most recognized Toronto icons, but I’d be curious to know how many Torontonians have visited it.  It’s a great destination, which provides you with a unique opportunity to see an unparalleled view of the city.  The 360 Restaurant is a revolving elegant dining experience & the Edgewalk is the world’s highest full circle hands free walk.  Not for the faint of heart!
Rideau Hall is the official home & workplace of the Governor General of Canada.  It was built in 1838 and is a beautiful place to spend the day or just an hour or two.  You can take a free, guided tour of the residence or walk around the 79 acres of landscaped grounds. You won’t want to miss the Ceremonial Guard!

Safari Niagara (Niagara)
This 150 acre private nature park is home to more than 750 native & exotic mammals, reptiles & birds.  With so much to do, this is a must see attraction!  You can visit with the animals, check out the Adventure Zone, bungee jump, visit the splash pads or children’s play area, or paddle boat!  It’s a day of fun for all ages.
Central Ontario boasts 2 cool attractions that locals & visitors alike should visit.  The Roseneath Carousel was built in 1906 & is still operational today.  It has gone undergone much restoration over the years and is now both museum quality AND rideable.  The Midland Murals, across from Harbourfront Park, are one of Ontario’s largest & most beautiful outdoor galleries.  There are more than 30 paintings, including North America’s largest historic outdoor mural.

Trans Canada Trail
While the weather is still nice, take advantage of the world’s longest network of recreational trails. As of now, nearly 17,000km of the Trail have been completed which is 75% of the proposed route; when it is finished (in time for Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017), it will span 22,000km from the Atlantic to the Pacific. 4 of 5 Canadians live within 30 minutes of the Trail, so there is no excuse to not use it! (Ontario)
