Toronto's Must-See Attractions and Activities Are Always Amazing



Get your walking shoes on, because we have some amazing attractions & activities for you to see in Toronto.

There are some that you may expect, such as the omnipresent CN Tower. Right in the vicinity is the former Skydome, which has retained its impressive retracting dome but gained the less memorable name of the Roger's Centre.

If you are the mood for some serious shopping, get out of your mall mentality and check out two of Toronto's unique shopping districts: West Queen West and Kensington Market. Your souvenirs will never look the same. There is also the pedestrian-only historic Distillery District with old-world charm infused in its many shops and restaurants.

If nature is your forte and city-living is taking some getting used to, there are some pockets of Toronto that will satisfy your craving for the green side of life. High Park is 400 acres of public space with glorious historical buildings peppered throughout. The Toronto Islands offer a rare view of Toronto with Lake Ontario rippling in front of the city skyline. Come with a bike to enjoy one of the car-free islands.

The Art Gallery of Ontario or the Royal Ontario Museum are world class ways to get your culture fix. 

Whatever type of entertainment you seek, Toronto is more than happy to oblige.
