InterContinental Toronto Centre
Start your day with a 15 minute stroll through the Entertainment District to historic St. Lawrence Market, where the indoor stalls overflow with fresh produce and artisan foods. Ask the local vendors about the latest food trends, then delve deeper into Toronto’s rich culture at the nearby Hockey Hall of Fame. After poring over NHL memorabilia, movies and trophies, take the subway to the Art Gallery of Ontario, where you’ll find everything from Old Masters to contemporary Canadian sculpture.
After stopping at a sidewalk cafe for lunch, we suggest you visit Kensington Market. In Toronto’s famous bohemian district you can explore multicolored stores harboring vintage clothing boutiques and unique craft galleries. Later, make your way back towards the waterfront to discover the sharks and turtles at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, or ask the concierge to book tickets to a pro baseball game at the Rogers Centre. In summer, head for the scenic parks and beaches of the Toronto Islands.
As the day draws to a close, why not head to the landmark CN Tower to watch the sunset from the 447 meter observation deck? On clear evenings, you can see as far as Niagara Falls and into New York State. It’s only a few steps back to the hotel, where you can savor a flawless dinner at Azure Restaurant. Afterwards, you could settle back with a cocktail at the Azure Bar & Lounge, or ask the concierge to arrange tickets to a symphony at Roy Thomson Hall, or a musical at the Royal Alexandra Theatre.
