The largest city in Canada and the capital of cultural and leisure diversity, Toronto has a mix of attractions and enchantment that brings millions of tourists every year.
The city center is relatively easy to navigate, with many of the top attractions within walking distance of each other and a subway system to cover longer distances.
So buckle up and get ready to travel with us through the best and must-go spots to visit in The 6!
The grouping of waterfalls called Niagara Falls is actually three waterfalls: Canadian Falls “Horseshoe Falls”, American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls.
You can cross the border into the US (on Rainbow Bridge) to see the US side of the river but you will need a passport or form of formal ID.
Along the way, visit the charming town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, stop for lunch at a venue with a spectacular view overlooking the falls, visit a local winery for a tasting, and get photos of the natural landmark from some outstanding lookout points.
If the weather and season permits, you can also ride the Hornblower boat out onto the river for an up-close experience with the falls.
One of the most popular attractions of Niagara Falls is the Hornblower Cruise – also known as “Voyage to the Falls”! These boats have an upper deck where you get exposed to all the elements but they also have lower-level viewing with seats.
The CN Tower
An icon in Toronto’s landscape, when you see this tower you remind of Toronto.
Built by the Canadian National Railways in 1976, the CN Tower is considered to be one of the world’s modern wonders. It once held the record as the tallest building in the world and is currently one of the tallest free-standing structures. The top of the building contains a glass-bottom floor as well as a revolving restaurant, known as the 360 Restaurant. At the restaurant, you can enjoy an exceptional dining experience while overlooking the entire city of Toronto.
Inside the tower, there is a famous glass floor for those brave enough to walk on. There is a restaurant at the top called: 360 Restaurant, which is known for serving high-class dishes with local ingredients. And the best part: The restaurant makes a full rotation every hour so you truly get views of all over the city!
The Royal Ontario Museum
The Royal Ontario Museum, or ROM, is a museum of natural history and cultural diversity. It is Canada’s largest museum of its kind. The outdoor building is uniquely designed and recommended for its one-of-a-kind architecture.
It is located at Bloor Street and Avenue Road and has a history of displaying just a little bit of everything! However, this makes sense – the ROM is the largest (and most visited) museum in Canada and one of the largest in North America.
With around 6 million pieces, the numerous galleries and exhibits feature things from spiders to art, culture to dinosaurs, and Rome!
If you are a sports fan, Toronto is the place to fill your passion, this city has the most supportive fans I know. In any sport, the Torontonians are enthusiasts of its representative teams.
The Hockey Hall of Fame
Toronto is an ice hockey country and has been since 1917 with the founding of the Toronto Maple Leafs. It’s also home to the Hockey Hall of Fame, which makes it a must-see attraction for visitors who love this exciting sport. Home to the prestigious Stanley Cup, the museum features the greatest players in this sport as well as explains its history through artifacts and film. It also has state-of-the-art interactive multi-media exhibits that allow visitors to project themselves playing against the professionals or to become play-by-play broadcasters.
Scotiabank Arena/ Rodgers Arena
If you are a fan of live sports these spots are for you!
Home of 2018-19 NBA Champions, The Scotiabank Arena, formerly Air Canada Centre, is a multi-purpose arena located on Bay Street in the South Core district of Downtown Toronto. The arena is 665,000 sq ft in size.
The Scotiabank Arena opened its doors in February 1999 and has been recognized with more than 40 industry awards highlighting the venue’s security, accessibility, fan service, environmental commitment, sales and box office service. It has also hosted over 39 million fans at over 2,600 events.
Leafs tickets can be very expensive but are definitely worth the experience of watching professional level hockey in Canada. Raptors tickets can be less expensive if you don’t mind sitting farther up in the stands!
But if you couldn’t make it for the game you can still have fun, even watching in any of the sports bars nearby is an experience worthy of a visitor to Toronto, but one place became a tourist attraction after the Raptors championship.
Maple Leaf Square/Jurassic Park
Maple Leaf Square is a multi-use complex and public square located in the South Core neighborhood of Toronto. During the 2014 postseason for the Raptors, the public square was nicknamed by fans as Jurassic Park (in reference to the film from which the Raptors team name originated).
Originally named SkyDome, The Rodgers Arena is a multi-purpose stadium in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, situated just southwest of the CN Tower near the northern shore of Lake Ontario. Opened in 1989 on the former Railway Lands, it is home to the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball (MLB).
The Blue Jays are the only Canadian team playing in Major League Baseball so if you’re free anytime from April to September, Toronto is a great time out in the sunshine to watch a good baseball game. The other great thing about tickets at the Rogers Centre is that that they are still relatively inexpensive. You can go to a game for cheap and enjoy the game from decent seats!
In the heart of downtown Toronto lies an ancient-looking castle. This beautiful castle was created in the 20th century by a wealthy businessman named Sir Henry Pellat. You can take a tour of the inside of the castle as well as the gardens.
This place was the dream of a wealthy man who always wanted to live in a castle, so he built one. Casa Loma has 98 rooms and was the largest house in Toronto when it was built. It also has secret passageways, lovely gardens, a library, a hunting lodge, and even an elevator. Three hundred people worked three years to construct this magnificent complex.
