Top Tips for Visiting Toronto
1. Book the CN Tower
As one of the most popular tourist attractions in Canada, slots to take in the view at the CN Tower fill up fast. You can either go early and beat the queue to secure your spot, or you can book a meal which allows you to skip the line and take the ride to the top. Although a little pricey, it is worth it if you are on a time crunch – or if you want to sample some delicious gourmet food!
2. Visit the Canadian National Exhibition
Currently the 10th largest fair in North America, the Canadian National Exhibition attracts over 1.5 million visitors per year. If you are planning on visiting at the end of August, make sure you visit this incredible fair! With international performers, dozens of rides, delicious food and fascinating exhibitions, there is enough to keep you entertained for days.
3. Winterlicious and Summerlicious
Winterlicious and Summerlicious are the perfect opportunity for foodies to discover Toronto’s culinary scene. Visit either of these and prepare to indulge in world class cuisine with three course meals and one-off events in more than 200 of the city’s top restaurants. Make sure you look into the dates available and take advantage of the fabulous dining options around the city at the time!
4. Take a Bus Tour
The hop-on, hop-off bus tour in Toronto is very popular with visitors as it provides a great introduction to the city. Go around once and get a feel for the host of activities that Vancouver has to offer and decide which ones you would like to explore further.
5. Attend a Sports Game
If you want to cheer on some world class sports teams, attend a game in the Rogers Centre – if the evening weather is nice, the centre will open the dome for the baseball games. Tickets for both baseball and basketball games can be reasonably priced, so have a look online to get the best deal.
