SLIGHTLY OVERLOOKED, BUT WILDLY INTERESTING
A prominent centre for entertainment and sports events, Oshawa is a city that sits on the shore of Lake Ontario and is so much more than just a mere Toronto suburb. In addition to incorporating countless trails and parks, Oshawa is extremely rich in culture and makes for an equally great place to live and tourist location to visit. Unfortunately, Oshawa is often missed as not many tourists go much further than Toronto. If you are looking for a laidback place to enjoy, this town has much to offer.
The Canadian Automotive Museum is a very popular place to visit. If you’re into cars and would like to explore some interesting specimens, including Canadian-made ones, this is the place to be. Filled with cars that date back to 1902, this is a 2,300-square meter museum housed in what used to be a local dealership. Another thing you could try is to wander around the Parkwood estate, which was once the residence of the founder of General Motors of Canada. It boasts no less than 55 rooms and a stunning garden often used for photo shoots and weddings.
