Toronto is the most populous city in Canada, and one of the most culturally influential cities in the world. Toronto is also incredibly diverse, which is something that you will immediately recognize upon looking at the names of the city’s neighborhoods or while on a Toronto city tour. In addition to Little Italy and Chinatown, you will also see Koreatown, Little Portugal and the almost-politically-correct-named Irish neighborhood, Cabbagetown, which is comprised of the largest continuous and best preserved area of Victorian housing in North America. While touring these neighborhoods is part of the fun of Toronto sightseeing, some of the most fun things to do in Toronto will be found downtown, particularly between Queen Street and the water. Whether you’re looking for an Entertainment District rivaling New York City’s Broadway, some of the freshest food that you'll ever come across while shopping (St. Lawrence Market) or a few cozy pubs where you can enjoy some Molsons, this part of Toronto has it all!
Some of the biggest Toronto attractions include the Toronto Stock Exchange, the Hockey Hall of Fame, the CN Tower, Eaton Centre and the Rogers Centre (formerly known as the SkyDome). The city of Toronto, like New York, Chicago or London, is also one of the premier destinations for shopping, nightlife, entertainment and dining. The Distillery Historic District, one of the most popular areas in Toronto for all four, contains some of the city’s most experimental restaurants, unique boutiques, quaint coffee shops and quirky artisan shops. There are also several venues within the district, too, though the best places to see live music are closer to the University of Toronto. Lee’s Place is particularly popular for mid-level bands that you may have heard your friend from Brooklyn mention in passing. While music and theater are two of the most important facets to the cultural scene in the city, no Toronto tour would be complete without a stop in either the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Ontario Museum, Casa Loma or the Bata Shoe Museum, which often seems more like a Comparative Lit dissertation than a museum.
There are dozens of day trips from Toronto. The most popular is the Niagara Falls tour from Toronto, as the falls can be reached from downtown in less than two hours. The Scarborough Bluffs, an escarpment overlooking Lake Ontario, are another popular destination. There are plenty of recreational activities for visitors to the Bluffs to do, the most popular of which are hiking and mountain biking.
