Lake Ontario bridges the divide between New York and Canada, with its shoreline left undeveloped to the south and bustling to the north. Toronto’s 28-mile-long waterfront is among the longest in North America with sections of sandy beach punctuated by urban development replete with observation windows and chic terraces. Also to the north, Niagara-on-the-Lake is considered Ontario’s loveliest town with a lake front park and historic buildings that draw in even the most committed outdoor enthusiasts. In New York, visitors can enjoy relative solitude in verdant hills or on the lakeshore. To balance the trip out, a visit to Rochester is ideal in order to enjoy the city’s exceptional architecture and city parks. On either side of the border, we recommend an overnight stay among the region’s natural beauty. Book a luxury yurt or secluded cabin along the shores of Lake Ontario for a memorable getaway.
