One of the fastest growing cities in Canada, Vaughan is just north of Toronto, and although it is a suburb of the large city, it is a city in its own right. Vaughan has a long history that dates back to 1792, but it wasn’t until its massive expansion after 1991 that put the city on the map.
Not only is Vaughan a cultural melting-pot, it is also filled with things to do. It is home to the largest amusement park in the country, one of Canada’s largest shopping centres and an open-air heritage museum. In short, it is a city well worth visiting.
Some Interesting Facts about VAUGHAN:
If you are a fan of the famous Group of Seven, then you must visit the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. This small art gallery features an extensive collection of paintings by Tom Thomson, as well as other works by other artists from this renowned group.
The art gallery is small, but it sits amongst 40 hectares of forest. In addition to the art gallery itself, there is also a sculpture garden, the historic Tom Thomson Shack and a cemetery where six of the Group of Seven are buried.
After strolling through the gallery and admiring the artwork, explore the grounds and go for a nice walk along one of its trails. The trails wind through some picturesque forest of pine, maple and oak.
