Mississauga Day Trips
While Mississauga offers a lot of fun opportunities, there is also a lot of fun day trips to take from the city. An hour away is Niagara Falls, where you can take pictures by the waterfall, ride underneath the falls in the Maid of the Mist, or skip the falls and visit the Niagara Wine Region. A shorter 30 minutes away is Toronto, home of the Toronto Raptors and the iconic CN Tower. Around two hours away in the U.S. is Buffalo, New York, where you can choose to view Niagara Falls stateside, or experience the city of historical architecture. For a peaceful getaway, head to Oshawa, a residential city an hour north. For a fun beach day, 30 minutes away also lies Hamilton, a city on the tip of Lake Ontario.
