People enjoying a sunny day at Bruce Peninsula.

There are countless beautiful places in Ontario that deserve a visit a least once in your life. Earlier this year, we featured secret places, stunning small towns, and even surreal places you might not have known existed in our own backyard. But perhaps the one place we've featured that you absolutely must visit is Bruce Peninsula National Park.

Sitting right beside the Georgian Bay, the Bruce Peninsula offers some of the most breathtaking features of the Ontario landscape, including flowerpot-shaped rock formations and the Niagara Escarpment wineries. Even more, the park includes an amazing, hidden Grotto that is just on the Bruce trail. Along the way, you'll encounter rock arches, pebble beaches and massive cliffs that will definitely take your breath away.

From Toronto, it's only a 3 hour and 59 min drive, so it truly is a paradise close to home. In the summer months, the peninsula can sometimes even look like the Caribbean. In the northern section of the beach, near Lake Huron, there is also a beach called the "Singing Sands" where you can swim in some of the clearest blue waters around, all while being surrounded by majestic views of greenery and fauna.

You can also do several family activities, including camping, kayaking and canoeing in the warmer months.

Happy adventuring!
