Local Seasons: 

 

Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, this Canadian city offers four distinct seasons.  Due to the proximity to the Lake as well as the warmer weather, summers tend to be the busiest time.  With daytime temperatures reaching right around 80 F and the evenings dropping near 60 F, it’s the perfect time to enjoy many of the numerous outdoor activities available.  Spring brings a rebirth as Mother Nature’s finest bursts onto the scene.  As the temperatures begin to warm, the visitor is welcomed by the beauty of a widening range of colors throughout the area.  Fall is even more vibrant as the leaves turn to a multitude of oranges, yellows, browns, and everything in between.  With the daytime temperatures still near 60 F during this time, and with the colors abounding, it’s a perfect time to enjoy a stroll through any of the city’s numerous parks, and possibly a quiet lunch at one of the great restaurants located in and around the city.  The winters tend to be cold, with a fair amount of snow.  A nice warm drink by a roaring fire while snowflakes fall is a perfect way to end a day.  Whatever the season, this lakeside city has something for everyone.
