Train
“The Most Magical Part of Ontario! Take the Tour Train there that would take you between the Mountains. You must fly to get there because it's a very long drive, we are talking 15 hours from Toronto but it's SUPER WORTH IT!! You'd think you are in Switzerland. Google it to read more about the area ”
