Wander through High Park. This huge park highlights just how much green space Toronto has, despite being a bustling city. This park boasts sunken gardens, hanging basket gardens, nature trails, ponds, and more — all stretching across 165 acres.  

Explore the St. Lawrence Market. Discover delicious local fair, find a special gift for someone, or just walk around and enjoy the atmosphere of this market, which is over 200 years old. It’s a great way to spend your time, and allows you to find unique, artisan products that help you support small businesses.

Take a trip to Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls State Park is only an hour away, so why not hop in your Lincoln and visit this natural wonder? Whether you join a tour or simply take in the Falls from the many viewpoints, it’s a great way to while away an afternoon or a weekend.

Wherever you want to go in and around Toronto, the best way to travel is behind the wheel of a Lincoln SUV. To find the one that’s right for you, stop in soon to see us here at Downtown Lincoln.
