Fall in Ontario is a beautiful time of the year that many Ontarians might take for granted. When I lived briefly in British Columbia as a student, many people I met were from Ontario, and invariably, the thing they missed most were the autumn colours.
Algonquin Provincial Park is renowned for its spectacular display of colourful foliage. Of course, if you’re from Toronto (or anywhere in Southern Ontario), it’s important to know the colours in Algonquin peak about two weeks before they do in Southern Ontario. Usually, campgrounds, hotels, and resorts book up fast for that last weekend in September.
