Sneak Peek – Inside the Ontario Summer Magazine

photoGuest Blogger Katherine Low: As Publications Manager at Ontario Tourism, one of the best parts of my job is editing the Ontario magazine, as I get to be the first to read about new and unique attractions and experiences across our beautiful province. Whether it’s a story on the rugged beauty of a provincial park or a fun, new urban hotspot, I am always finding inspiration to get out there and see it all. I love to travel but I feel most at home paddling on an Ontario lake – lucky for me, Ontario has over 250,000 lakes to explore! Home sweet home.


When I was little, I used to count the days until the Sears Wishbook landed on my doorstep in early winter. My sister and I would carefully pore over the glossy pages of the catalogue, perusing new toys and stuffed animals while we dreamed of the games we would play. We chose carefully and circled a few “must-have” items to add to our Christmas lists. I can still remember the smell of the thick catalogue. It was always the first sign that winter was here.

Just as the Wishbook inspired me to start dreaming about Christmas, I hope the newest Ontario magazine will inspire you to start dreaming about this summer!

And now available as a flipbook or in tablet form as a free download via itunes, there are a myriad of ways to start dreaming about your own Ontario “sandbucket” list. Whether it’s a daytrip to any one of Ontario’s beautiful Great Lakes beaches or a camping trip to Algonquin Park, you’ll find inspiration, ideas and planning tools to help turn your summer travel dreams into reality.

Relax on a beautiful, sandy beach. Race down a water park slide! Marvel at legendary artwork and applaud home-grown theatre or world-class performing arts. Savour a wine and culinary excursion! Step back in time with the War of 1812 Bicentennial. Whether it’s a city escape or natural wilderness, Ontario has everything you could ask for in a brilliant summer vacation.
