    Excellent nature trails, #BackyardNature, #WildNFree. Bring some bird seeds and feed the birds from your hands - lots of chickadees, Nuthatchers, Downy woodpeckers, BlueJays, Cardinals and lots more. You might even be lucky to see Wood Ducks, beaver and other aquatic wildlife.

Where to stay in Mississauga

Mississauga is best known for housing Toronto's airport-- most of the city's accommodations cluster just a few minutes from the terminal. If you're looking for a place to rest before your flight, you'll find a range of options on Dixon Road, to the north of the airport, or on Eglington Road West to the south. Don't expect much character--your options include mid-range chain hotels and basic inns, with little else on offer. You can find a handful of business-oriented hotels in the city itself, mainly located around Burnhamthorpe Road.
