Ready for an outdoor adventure? Rather than chasing waterfalls, it’s time to chase sunsets! Sometimes we get lost in the hustle and bustle of city life, that we tend to ignore the wondrous beauty of nature around us. Sometimes we really need to take a step back and admire our beautiful province. That’s why an evening escape to one of Ontario’s Parks is a must – especially for a sunset evening. And we’re in luck, some of our province’s lovely parks ARE the best places to watch sunsets in Ontario.

Here’s a list of a few parks to visit.
