Toronto is considered Canada’s melting pot. It is said that half of the people living in Toronto were born outside of the country, so that means lots of different languages, sights and flavors, which make the city a really fun place to explore. With only a few days in Toronto, we set out to visit a mix of neighborhoods, top attractions, and of course, we also made time to sample plenty of food. The following travel guide will showcase 25 things to do in Toronto, so if you’re planning a trip here or you need some travel inspiration, be sure to stick around as we take you on a city tour.
Not many visitors know this about Toronto, but just a short ferry ride from the city you have a chain of islands that offer some of the best views in the whole city. The largest and most visited of them all is Centre Island and it’s a great place to be during the summer months. It is a real nice quite green escape form the hustle and bustle of the downtown. Yeah, it is super relaxed. You can enjoy watching like little baby ducks and swans. Super cute! And this is where you get the most iconic views of the city. Like those postcard perfect views. So, you may have never seen this vantage point in life and you will definitely love up here.
Next place up is the CN Tower and you have to show up 30 minutes earlier as the waiting line is longer, and no one is willing enough to wait for two hours in long queues. The CN Tower was once the world’s tallest free-standing structure and the world’s tallest tower for more than 3 decades. It can be a bit unnerving if you’re not a big fan of heights, especially once you reach the glass floor, but it’s one of those iconic attractions that you can’t miss. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even do the Edge Walk which takes you on a hands free walk around the roof of the main pod.
Ripley’s Aquarium is one of Toronto’s newest attractions and it draws big crowds. The aquarium is home to 450 species, but our favorite part was The Dangerous Lagoon, which is an underwater tunnel where you can see sharks, stingrays and sea turtles swimming above your head. The aquarium is located right next to the CN Tower, so you could easily to both on the same day. If you luck out with a nice day, we’d recommend going for a walk along the Harbor front. You can often find live music and various events and exhibitions taking place, plus it’s a really nice area to enjoy a stroll.
Baseball’s Hall of Fame
Formerly known as the Sky Dome, this stadium is home to the Toronto Blue Jays. Baseball fans can take tours or catch a game during the season. The ever growing collection is getting a little higher with this latest Toronto Blue Jays hat. And the Toronto Blue Jays are Canada’s only team in Major League Baseball and they’re a pretty awesome team. They’ve won two World Series both in the 90’s.
