Toronto, being the capital of the province of Ontario, in Canada, is North America’s fourth largest city and Canada’s biggest city. Today, we will take a look at the main attractions of this diverse, multicultural and sprawling metropolis.
A must-see icon of Toronto and perhaps the most important landmark, the CN tower is North America’s tallest tower and the third tallest in the world, with a height of 553 m. The top floor, accessed by transparent glass elevators, features a fantastic panoramic view of the city, and also has a glass floor, with the visible ground right below your feet. The rotating restaurant is here as well, providing you the experience of eating while watching the 360 view slowly passing by as it rotates.
The Toronto Islands are the ideal destination for those seeking the outdoors, especially during the summer season, where temperatures will be on average 2 or 3 lower than in the city itself. The islands are connected by a fast ferry ride to the mainland. If you will in fact be visiting during the summer, the island themselves are connected to one another by bicycle paths, providing a tremendous opportunity for cycling, and also the water from Lake Ontario surrounding these islands will be warm enough to swim in, particularly at Hanlans Point Beach.
Toronto is home to various ethnic groups, so if you are looking to taste cuisine and experience cultures from around the world, be sure to check out the many ethnic districts in the city, most notably the Little Italy and Portugal village, Chinatown, Little India, and Korea-town. They all feature countless coffee shops, stores, restaurants, and grocery stores.
If you are looking for fun, and/or have children traveling together, it is worthy to mention the Canada’s Wonderland theme park, only 40 minutes away from downtown Toronto and considered one of the major amusement parks in all of North America. There are more than 200 different attractions, and the park is open May through October.
If you will be visiting Toronto during the winter season, and crave sports, don’t miss out on ice hockey games taking place at the Scotia-Bank Arena at Bay Street, downtown Toronto. This is where the Toronto Maple Leafs, also known as simply ”the Leafs”, have made their home. The seasonal games start every year in October, and last until June of the following year.
The world’s longest street as recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records, the ideal way to explore it is on foot, featuring a diversity of stores, restaurants, and shopping malls in between, making it a prime section of the city in which to shop.
