Things To Do in Toronto

We’ve heard Toronto described as “New York City run by the Swiss,” and it’s true—you can find world-class theater, shopping and restaurants here, but the sidewalks are clean and the people are friendly. The best place to start is literally at the top—the CN Tower, the tallest freestanding structure in the Western Hemisphere.

“CN Tower’s most thrilling attraction in its history, and the first of its kind in North America”. The EdgeWalk, even though completely safe, is not for the faint of heart, to put it mildly. The tickets go for about $145 USD. 

A small cafe (VUE Bistros) is located on the LookOut level; it serves Canadian fast food and beverages.
The tower’s main restaurant, the 360. For a panoramic fine dining dinner head to the 54th floor Canoe, located about 5 minutes’ walk from the CN Tower.

This is Canada’s largest Museum– and one of North America’s biggest/most visited museums. It is more than a century old and houses more than six million items in forty (40) galleries… The collection covers Art, History as well as “World Cultures”. The Museum also carries out research around the World!! It is centrally located and can be readily reached by Toronto’s subway system— and even has its own station [which is also is “thematic”]. Special exhibits keep people coming to the Museum!

Located just North of Toronto, Canada’s Premiere Amusement Park truly has something for everyone. For thrill seekers, the park features 70 rides including 17 roller coasters and the all-new Yukon Striker, the world’s fastest, tallest and longest dive roller coaster. And for families, the park includes 2 children areas with rides, games and live entertainment. In addition, cool off in Splash Works, a 20 acre water park or take in any of our world class live shows and special events. Each fall brings the return of Camp Spooky for kids and families by day, and Halloween Haunt’s frightening attractions by night. And new for 2019, families can enjoy Winter Fest, where the park will be magically transformed into a winter wonderland full of enchantment and holiday cheer.

A modern day ice hockey museum, where many of the greatest hockey stars are recognized for their achievements. Love the stained glass dome created by Andy McCausland’s company, Robert McCausland.

It’s just so difficult to say “Toronto” and “Islands Park” in the same breath: it’s impossible to believe there are 3.5 million people just across the bay from this idyllic place. The transformation begins with the ferry’s mighty horn blast as it departs the pier. The 20 minute ride takes you to a different world.

There’s something for everyone here: children’s amusement park, clean beaches, swimming, picnic sites with bbq’s for any size gathering; there are gorgeous gardens, fountains, bike & walking trails.

The view on the north side is a beautiful cityscape across the glistening harbor. On the south side is Lake Ontario. The bike rental concession, on the boardwalk rents bicycles, tandems and even pedal-driven surreys by the half hour. After a pleasurable 1/2 hour ride on a rented surrey, we had a very nice meal at the lagoon-side restaurant. The food was good, and reasonably priced.

Ontario Place – Wander around the acres and acres of islands and futuristic buildings housing an imaginative entertainment complex.

Explore the Waters of the World at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada.
