Over the past few years, Toronto has grown to be one of the most popular cities in North America and it’s been proven it hasn’t been a mistake. Whether you’re a fan of Toronto sports team or in love with talented musicians the city has produced (Drake and the Weeknd just to name two) or just love the diverse culture the city provides
12. CN Tower
The CN Tower was once the largest building in the world until the Burj Khalifa was built a couple years ago in Dubai. Make your way to the top of the structure and stand on the glass floor as you get an amazing view of the city.
11. Royal Ontario Museum (ROM)
The ROM is one of the largest museums in North America and without a doubt, you will get lost in here if you don’t track your steps properly.
10. Blue Jays Game
Put on your favourite Blue Jays gear and make your way to the ballpark. Note: you will stick out like a sore thumb if you aren’t wearing anything Blue Jays related. The Rogers Center is always an amazing atmosphere and Blue Jays always give the fans something to cheer about.
9. Raptors Game
Get ready to get loud at the Air Canada Center. The fans that show up at the ACC every night are known to be some of the loudest and most passionate in the NBA, even LeBron James said so.
8. Distillery District
No matter what time of the year it is, there will be something cool going on in the distillery district. Whether it is the Christmas market during the winter or it is summer time and you are going on tours of the different breweries in the district, you’re going to have a great time.
7. Eaton Center/Yorkdale
Stepping into either one of these malls will have you feel like you are in a whole new world. Both malls house all of your favourite retailers as well as a great shopping experience that you won’t quickly forget.
6. Toronto Island
There aren’t many cities in the world that have their crowded downtown sector next to their beach, but Toronto is one of them. A day to Toronto Island can be filled with trips to the different beaches or catch a flight from Billy Bishop Airport and just get out the city completely.
5. Canada’s Wonderland
If you’re in for the thrill and screams a stop at Canada’s Wonderland is a must. This amusement park is the largest in Canada and has a couple rides that will make you scream until your lungs pop out of your chest.
4. Queen Street West
Queen Street West is known for its art and forever transcending influence on the city of Toronto. You will notice great boutiques, professional graffiti, art stores and much more when traveling along this street. It was named one of the trendiest streets in the world and for great reason.
3. Yonge-Dundas square
When you step into Yonge-Dundas Square you’re quickly going to feel like you are standing in the middle of Times Square in New York City.
2. Kensington Market
It may be a little hard to navigate when you’re in Kensington market as there are plenty of one-way streets, but the shops you come across will not disappoint. Kensington Market has great restaurants, great shops and a distinct culture that is hard to describe but very easy to love and fall in line with.
