Being the most populous city in Canada, there’s always something going on in Toronto. The city is a true creative hub where music, movies, theater, and television are produced on a daily basis. Visitors can choose from a wide range of museums and other cultural activities to fill their days. Thanks to its chequered street plan, driving around Toronto is easy. Pick up your rental car in the center and explore every corner of the city at your own pace.
Toronto is famous for its skyscrapers and the best way to see them might just be by taking the ferry over to the Toronto Islands, where you will find a theme park, a golf course, and other entertainment options. Another way to get a great view of the city is by taking the glass elevator up to the top of the CN Tower. It has a viewing platform, a revolving restaurant, and in summer you can do the Edgewalk and stroll around the tower while being protected with a security harness. Whether day or night, when the skies are clear, the views from the top are amazing.
On bad weather days, head to one of the many museums. No less than ten historic houses, museums, and galleries teach visitors more about Toronto’s past. While the Ontario Science Center challenges the minds of young and old, the Hockey Hall of Fame is dedicated entirely to Canada’s most popular sport. More than just a hall of fame, it has exhibitions, games, memorabilia, a replica of an NHL dressing room, and lots more.
Getting hungry? Not a problem, because Toronto is home to a diverse culinary scene. On the one hand, there’s a large variety in international cuisine with restaurants serving foods from all over the world. On the other, there’s an upcoming movement promoting Canadian cuisine and the use of local produce.
Go for an elaborate dinner or grab a quick bite before catching a live performance at one of the city’s jazz clubs. In case you want to dance and shake those hips, places like salsa club Lula Lounge, Ace Nightclub, and The Mod Club have got you covered.
Also, in case you need a break from the city for a while, simply drive out to Niagara Falls and be dazzled by one of the world’s most impressive waterfalls, located only an hour and a half from Toronto by car.
