The 5 Most Popular Hotels in Mississauga
Choosing A Hotel in Mississauga
Quick Summary of Most Popular Areas
Port Credit: scenic waterfront area with shops, art shows and festivals
Streetsville: the village within the city
Toronto Airport: Toronto Pearson International Airport is Canada's largest and most used airport
You are in Mississauga, now what?
Surprise! You've just landed at Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and booked a hotel near the Toronto Airport only to find that you're actually in Mississauga. Don't fret though, Toronto is not overly hard to get to, plus there is a bunch of stuff to do in Mississauga as well. Just a hint to out-of-towners: If you want to spend your days in Toronto, book a hotel downtown Toronto and not near the airport.
If you do happen to be in Mississauga for a reason and not by accident you'll most definitely want to check out either Port Credit or Streetsville, or both. Port Credit is a fairly scenic area that stretches across the waterfront and is where you'll find many boutique shops as well as a 22km stretch of the 650km Waterfront Trail (the full trail stretches from Niagara-On-The-Lake to the Quebec border). Streetsville is a quaint village and has a cozy main street with a handful of shops.
It's been called 'Ontario's shopping capital' although I'm pretty sure they dubbed that themselves... Mississauga does have a fairly large shopping mall called Square One, which is something like a million square feet. Mississauga is also home to Playdium (a pretty awesome indoor/outdoor gaming park) and the popular Woodbine Racetrack (for those that enjoy the smell of horse manure while gambling).
How to get around the city
Finally, important to note, Mississauga is not a walkable city so you will need some mode of transportation to get around. Driving is probably the most convenient as navigating and parking is fairly easy. However, if you are flying into Mississauga and renting a car is not in the budget you can easily get around with Mississauga's public transit bus system - miWay.
Downtown Toronto...ya let's face it, you probably meant to go to Toronto. Joking aside, Mississauga is about a 20 minute drive from Oakville and only about 2,000km from beautiful Daytona Beach, FL.
