Ontario: Top 5 Things to Do During a Business Trip


Business trips are a part of life for millions of people around the world, but they don’t have to be all work and no play anymore. Gone are the days of slaving away for 18 hours a day, carting our laptops everywhere we go. With the advancements in technology, we can work smarter and faster – giving us more time to relax and unwind when we are away from home.

A balanced approach to business trips is needed if you are going to make the most of your visit to a new city or country. To avoid only ever seeing four walls during your next stay in Ontario, below are the top five things to do in this fantastic destination:

  1. The Big Nickel

After all, businesses are all about the bottom line, right? So, what better place to visit during a business trip than a giant nickel in the sky? Canada is all about roadside attractions and this one does not disappoint!

Located at the Dynamic Earth Science Museum in Sudbury, the Big Nickel was built almost 50 years ago and pays its respects to the mining industry of the area. This nine-meter replica of a 1951 Canadian nickel is a must-see on your next trip to Ontario.

  1. Niagara Falls

One of the most obvious choices, and certainly worth the trip for all entrepreneurs, is going to see Niagara Falls. For first-time visitors to Ontario, this is one of the ultimate experiences in the area. Niagara Falls is one of the most talked about waterfalls in the world, and for good reason!

There is an entire city built around it, so there is no shortage of Niagara attractions to add to your list.

  1. Tim Hortons Southside Shuffle

If your business trip to Mississauga is in September, you are in luck! September is time for the annual Tim Hortons Southside Shuffle Blues & BBQ Festival. This popular festival attracts over 80 000 attendees in 3 days for an outdoor event dedicated to jazz and blues.

Held at Port Credit’s Memorial Park, this a not-to-be-missed event. Your company’s travel department can find amazing rentals for short-term stays in Mississauga, just in time for you to share this mind-blowing experience with your colleagues or favorite clients.

  1. Maple Syrup Museum of Ontario

This little sweet spot in Ontario is dedicated to documenting the fascinating history of maple syrup production and consumption in Canada. It is a quaint museum in the basement of a multi-use building, sharing a space with other places dedicated to preserving history.

Though this cozy little museum is small, it provides an immersive and immeasurable history of maple syrup and the industry surrounding its popularity.

  1. Winter Garden Theater

Located in Toronto, Ontario, this botanically themed auditorium is the world’s last operating double-decker theater. Leafy plants and a veil of flowers adorn the walls, making each performance seem like it comes straight out of an enchanting fairy tale.

Designed to bring the outside in, the walls, lighting, and trellises are all covered with real dried leaves. That brings a whimsical element to the guided tours - available on Mondays year-round.
