See the most known tourist attraction in Canada – Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls is part of the natural border between Canada and the United States. It is located on the Niagara River, which drains Lake Erie into Lake Ontario, and has the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world with a vertical drop of more than 50 metres.
Visit a Toronto Blue Jays game
Attending a Toronto Blue Jays game is a perfect way to spend the summer afternoon with friends. Watching a baseball game on a sunny day with over 50,000 fans makes a perfect formula for an unforgettable experience.
Hit a Victorian Patio in the Distillery District
Where are some of the best pubs in Toronto hiding? In the Distillery District. Formerly the home of the largest distillery in the world, it is now a bustling pedestrian neighbourhood, full of art galleries, restaurants and numerous patios. The developers maintained the industrial Victorian aesthetic, making it a fun place to wander around, if a little more pre-packaged than other neighbourhoods.
See the City from above
It is impossible to visit Toronto without seeing the CN Tower, mainly because – at the height of 553.33 metres – it dominates the landscape. Take in the view from the LookOut level at 346 metres, walk on air on the Glass Floor and outdoor SkyTerrace at 342 metres, or check out the views from the highest perch of all: the SkyPod at 447 metres above the city!
Eat your way around the world
Almost half of the population of Toronto was born outside Canada, so it is entirely possible to take a trip around the world without ever leaving the city limits. Head to Chinatown, Little India, Little Italy and a lot more to taste different cultures in one place. But make sure to leave room for the Canadian favourite specialty – poutine.
YOU CAN ALSO
See a big show
Toronto bills itself as ‘Broadway North’, and with many touring companies coming through town, the city has an impressive theatre scene. There are plenty of theatres, where everyone can find a show for himself or herself.
Take in some history
Toronto is full of museums, such the Royal Ontario Museum, which houses a massive collection of cultural and historical items, as well as random rotating exhibitions.
Shop until you drop
Toronto has a handle on shopping. Toronto Eaton Centre is jammed with shops, and so are King, Queen and Bloor street, from high street brands to more chi chi designers. Grab some fresh produce and antiques at the St. Lawrence market before scouring Toronto’s many independent bookstores for a good read.
Visit the islands
With more than 2 million visitors each year, the Toronto Islands are one of the city’s top attractions. Especially on a nice summer day, it is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the weather. Ferries depart from the city ferry docks at the foot of Bay Street, and the three island destinations are just a 10-minute boat ride away.
