Description

If you're looking for a city that tops them all, look no further than Toronto, Canada. It's the tops. Literally. Toronto is home to the CN Tower, the world's tallest structure and one which can be explored from the very top. It's a metropolis wonderland on par with any major city in the world. That means one very important thing--you'll never run out of things to do. And the best of all is that just about everything is kid-friendly, so it's an excellent place to bring your entire family. From calming activities like historical sites, parks, gardens, and museums to activities that require a bit more energy like amusement and water parks, festivals, cultural celebrations, and zoos, Toronto is nonstop fun. Shopping is a fabulous mix of quirky and upscale, so you're sure to give your wallet a workout. And if your tootsies need a bit of a break from all of the fun you'll inevitably have all day long, you can sit back and take in a world-class professional hockey game, a dance or musical concert, or a theater performance. You're sure to leave Toronto delightfully exhausted.

Like other Canadian cities, Toronto features a wealth of adventure and beauty. Being so close to the US, there's no excuse not to visit such a beautiful and welcoming city.

Beautiful city. I wish we could've spent more time there. We wanted to visit the revolving restaurant in the CN Tower, but time didn't allow it.
This city is bustling with beautiful, friendly suburbs. The Canadian charm that this city offers is so much fun.
The Hockey Hall of Fame was an amazing attraction to visit if you're a hockey fan. It was the highlight of our very short trip.
We ate at Wayne Gretzky's restaurant, Gretzky's, on two different trips to Toronto. They have great pub-style fare. The desserts are great. I would recommend the 99 brownie or the 10-layer cake. Make sure you get the poutine anywhere you go in the city. It's phenomenal!

Toronto is a great, accepting place to do... Not very much. Stay outside/off of Yonge St/Bay Street/ The downtown core and you might actually have a good time. If it's summer, check out the Toronto Islands. They are really beautiful and there is a small amusement part on Centre Island.

As well, go to St. Lawrence Market, Queen west WEST for art galleries, Danforth street for street festivals, Church and Wellesley for LGBT things to do.

There is always something going on- check something like Now Magazine before you go to see what's going on that day and head to a local, small arts, theater, etc event. That's where it's at in Toronto. You don't need to spend a lot to have fun.

Also, if you are looking for the alternative area, check out Kensington Market on a warm day. Get a local coffee and people watch, shop in the alternative stores, etc.

Spare yourself from going to the CN Tower unless you don't have anything better to do. I loved it, but that's because I loved seeing the city I know so well below my feet.

I've lived here my whole life and I LOVE living here. Come with an open heart and open mind and don't get scared by all the hustle and bustle of city life. There is amazingness to be found past the cold stares of businessmen and people saying "sorry" when you bump into them on the subway by accident.
