Summer Fun Guide, Ontario's Comprehensive Guide to Year-Round Fun in Ontario, Suggests a Visit to Several Ontario Outdoor Attractions That Feature Fascinating Geological and Archaeological Oddities

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 06, 2016) - Summer Fun Guide (www.summerfunguide.ca), a comprehensive Ontario vacation planning guide and directory of events, activities, attractions and places to stay in Ontario, is always on the lookout for interesting things to do in Ontario for both tourists and residents alike. With an in-depth knowledge of Ontario tourism, Summer Fun Guide is the place to go to find all the must-see attractions and discover many of the province's hidden gems. "Ontario encompasses an area much larger than many countries, with a landscape as varied as it is wide. From the rugged beauty of the Canadian Shield to the Niagara Escarpment, Ontario has vast forests, countless lakes and rivers, rolling farmland, and vibrant metropolitan areas. Ontario is also home to several natural attractions that are geological and archaeological oddities. Each offers an exceptional experience that can be appreciated by people of all ages and, we feel, are well-worth visiting," says Shari Wert, Co-Publisher of Summer Fun Guide.

For a fun and adventurous one of a kind experience, we suggest checking out the following five places to visit in Ontario that are geologically or archaeologically unique:

  1. Petroglyph Provincial Park -- Located near Peterborough, Petroglyph Provincial Park has the largest known concentration of ancient First Nations rock carvings in Canada. View more than 900 petroglyphs of animals, humans, and other images carved into a marble rock face.
  2. Scenic Caves -- Located near Collingwood Blue Mountain, you can explore caves, caverns, trails, and breathtaking lookouts from the highest point of the Niagara Escapement. Scenic Caves Natural Adventures offers eco-adventure tours, tree-top walking, and ziplining.
  3. Bonnechere Caves -- A weird and wonderful sight to explore or take a guided tour, Ontario's "Natural Underground Wonder," the Bonnechere Caves, located near Eganville, were the bottom of a sea 500 million years ago.
  4. The Grotto and Indian Head Cove -- The Grotto and Indian Head Cove are located near Tobermory in Bruce Peninsula National Park. Hike down from the Bruce Trail through the natural chimney in the rock of the Niagara Escarpment to get to this unique natural rock formation, beautiful grotto, and surrounding crystal clear waters of Georgian Bay.
  5. Warsaw Caves Conservation Area -- The Warsaw Caves Conservation area features a campsite, beach, several walking trails, and a fascinating group of underground caves that were formed by glacial melting at the end of the last ice age.
