Welcome to the so-called “Center of the Universe”, where big city living and entertainment are in their heyday and entertainment is never far away. As one of Canada’s busiest cosmopolitan cities, Toronto serves up fun in huge doses and strikes that careful balance between neon lighting and beautiful natural surroundings.
Venture out of your Toronto hotel and scale to the highest heights in the CN Tower, the 3rd tallest building in the world, where you’ll enjoy a view that stretches as far as Niagara Falls on a clear day. Back on solid earth, you’ll find over six million artifacts to explore at the Royal Ontario Museum, a huge building where the past is more engaging than ever. The Art Gallery of Ontario has incredible works of artwork from around the globe, including several notable pieces from Europe and Canada. For a more quirky look at history, the Bata Shoe Museum won’t disappoint.
In a city of this size, fantastic shopping opportunities are all but a given. Walk the posh, upscale stores of Yorkville and stop for a bite at a high-end restaurant or peruse the eccentric boutiques to be found along Queen Street. The Distillery Historic District has a wonderful collection of galleries, shops and restaurants all nestled among restored Victorian industrial buildings.
Getting outdoors is easy too. Hop a ferry and visit the beaches, trails and amusement rides on Toronto Island Park, a favorite getaway for visitors and locals alike. High Park is a splash of green amidst the concrete jungle, where swimming, tennis and other ball sports are always in full swing.
Come nightfall, the city comes alive with pulsating nightclubs and delicious options for dinner. The Entertainment District knows how to throw a party, while Yonge Street won’t disappoint those looking for a chance to shake their tail feather.
