ONTARIO Map - CANADA
Today I've got another amazing mapcard (I'm really starting a collection - they're really great!) from my good friend Jason who live in the Ontario province (not state, province!). Thank you very much man! This postcard took 8 days to arrive!
Ontario, is one of the most heavily visited regions of Canada. Four major attractions draw most of the tourist: Toronto, as the country's largest city, Niagara Falls, as the overwhelming experience, Ottawa, as the country's capital and Algonquin Provincial Park - not only Ontario's largest and oldest, but also one of the best known parks in Canada. The origin of the name Ontario is believed to come from an Iroquoian word with the meaning sparkling or beautiful water or lake. This word was originally used to describe the large body of water that is currently known as Lake Ontario.
