Every time someone mentioned the word “Canada”, I used to think of this place as: “the coldest place you’ll ever visit!” For this reason, I decided to visit during the summer. In only three days, we were able to visit the city’s most popular attractions. Here’s your complete guide of the ten must-visit spots during your short stay in Toronto:
1) Visit the CN Tower
This is the world’s tallest communications tower and is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Once you get to the observation level, you’ll be able to enjoy the spectacular panoramic views of the city!
2) Experience Toronto’s most extreme attraction: Edgewalk
This attraction is a must for those looking for a thrilling adventure! Walk along the tower’s edge and experience the panoramic views of the city from a whole different perspective. Sadly, we weren’t able to do this due to renovations. But hey, I’ll have to go back then.
3) Stand on the world’s highest glass floor ever made!
Ok… for those of you that have experienced the glass floor in Chicago, this might not be a surprise to you. This was the first glass floor ever made so it might be “eh” for some of you.
PS: I was having a panic attack.
4) A day tour to the Niagara Falls
The Niagara Falls is between an hour 1/2 and a two-hour drive from downtown Toronto. JUST GO! It’s the perfect opportunity to scratch this from your bucket list.
Also, get ready to wear a PONCHO!
5) Enjoy a wine tasting session and explore the vineyards near the Niagara Falls
6) Visit the Steam Whistle Brewery
Conveniently located near the CN Tower, this Brewery lets you sample and learn how Canada’s Premium Pilsner is made.
Two words: UNLIMITED SAMPLES. So save yourself a few bucks and taste ALL their samples.
7) Go to The Royal Ontario Museum
Mostly known as the ROM, this museum is one of the largest museums in North America. The perfect place to learn Canada’s fascinating history and culture. Be sure to visit the exhibition about Canada’s natives!
8) The view of downtown Toronto from Casa Loma’s backyard!
This beautiful residence built in the 18th-century is the second most popular tourist destination in Toronto, Ontario.
9) The St. Lawrence Market has it all!
This lovely Market has everything you can possibly think of! From bakers to vendors and antiques to artisans. Here you can purchase Canada’s famous and delicious Maple Syrup at a very reasonable price.
10) Why deal with traffic when you can explore downtown Toronto on wheels?
Schedule a Bike Tour and discover Toronto’s most popular attractions such as Chinatown, City Hall, the Hockey Hall of Fame and the Entertainment District. An absolutely must for those interested in learning Toronto’s history, culture and architecture.
