Ontario’s “Garden City” boasts more than 1,000 acres of parks and green spots, and it’s also affectionately referred to as ‘St. Kitts’ by the younger population that’s mostly comprised of university students. That’s right – we’re talking about the city of St. Catharines, the largest city in Ontario’s Niagara region. It’s only a stone’s throw away from Niagara Falls and all of the tourist activities that one can enjoy there, and it’s very close to several different wineries, breweries, and more. It’s also the home of one of the most beloved post-secondary institutions in the province – Brock University.
