Take in the sights
Nothing says Toronto like the CN Tower. This iconic building is the world’s second tallest freestanding structure (553.3m) and an award-winning entertainment centre. Its observation levels include the famous Glass Floor and EdgeWalk, the world's highest 'hands-free' walk 356m above Toronto. The views from the top are sensational and on a clear day you can see the Niagara Falls.
Not far from the CN Tower is another Toronto must-see – the Hockey Hall of Fame. Canadians are passionate about hockey and the interactive exhibits, life size statues and memorabilia help explain why.
The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is among the world’s leading museums of natural history and world cultures. Fascinating as its collections are, the museum is as much a tourist attraction for its exciting design as it is for its contents. For more culture, head to The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). One of the largest art museums in North America, its collection includes Canadian and European art with works by artists such as Rubens, Monet, Picasso and Warhol.
When you’ve worked up a thirst, check out Steam Whistle Brewing. Located in what was once home to the Canadian Pacific Railway steam locomotive repair facility, it’s now a designated National Historic site. Take a tour of the brewery and learn how the company brews its own Pilsner.
Multicultural neighbourhoods. Multiple flavours
An astonishing one in two Torontonians was born somewhere else. And it’s this ethnic diversity that gives the city its energetic multicultural atmosphere. It also gives rise to an extraordinary diversity of restaurants. Pretty much whichever world cuisine you fancy, you can find it in Toronto. It really adds to the whole holiday experience.
Go Greek in Greektown or a have a tasty thali in Little India. Feast on dim sum in Chinatown or Neapolitan pizza in Baldwin Village. (Be sure to stop for a coffee in one of the Italian sidewalk cafés.) In the bohemian neighbourhood of Kensington Market you’ll find just about any food you can think of. With its colourful cafés, quirky independent shops and market stalls, it’s a great district to explore. Stop for lunch in one of the funky restaurants, and then go shopping for souvenirs.
Putting the life into nightlife
Like its cuisine, Toronto’s nightlife is impressively diverse. You’ll find everything from slick cocktail bars to laid back lounge bars where you can hear live jazz and blues. If you’re more into dancing, head to Clubland where you can party till the early hours. There’s also a vibrant film scene and outstanding theatre – the city has the third largest English-speaking theatre district in the world.
