Niagara Falls notwithstanding, there are plenty of other equally-enjoyable day trip destinations near Toronto. You have Hamilton at the western tip of Lake Ontario, which you will be passing by on your way to Niagara Falls. You could follow the south shore of the lake east to Oshawa, Belleville, and then Kingston-ON. Barrie on the shores of Lake Simcoe is another great destination for a day trip. If you are driving to and from Toronto Pearson International Airport, then you could easily check out Mississauga. Kitchener is not that far off from Mississauga. But the real adventure lies in a Great Lakes road trip. Book your car rental in Toronto from our website right now and plan for a road trip that takes you from Toronto to Niagara Falls, NY, and then along Lake Ontario’s south shore to Rochester-NY. Another choice is to head from Niagara Falls to Buffalo, NY and then continue the road trip along either shore of Lake Erie. You could also continue past Barrie and Wasaga Beach to Sudbury along Georgian Bay, and then drive on till you reach Sault Ste Marie, ON and Sault Ste Marie, Michigan near Lake Superior.
