Discover Toronto

Be a part of this city, even if just for a brief moment and experience the people, neighbourhoods, attractions, nightlife, cuisine, culture and sports. Here are some of Toronto’s not-to-be-missed attractions:

Couple on Toronto waterfront

Walk the iconic waterfront

Sprawling on the shore of Lake Ontario, you can gaze out for 53 miles and spy the state of New York. Snap a picture or two of the CN Tower as you go by and maybe swing into an event at the Harbourfront Centre.

Refuel in the Distillery District

Revived from the cobblestones of an old whiskey plant, the 19th century architecture is now home to handcrafted bakeries, international eats and, of course, coffeeshops. Grab a bite, maybe even a drink, and mooch around the nearby bouji boutiques while you’re at it.

Women in poncho at Niagara Falls

See a natural beauty spot

If you fancy taking a trip beyond Downtown, Niagara Falls is just a pebble’s skim away. This world wonder can jettison more than three million gallons of water per minute so be sure to pack that poncho.

Winter in Canada

Take cover from the cold

Travelling in winter? Toronto’s got you covered. Take the PATH, a labyrinth of underground walkways connecting the city. Take the edge off the chill in the Hockey Hall of Fame or Royal Ontario Museum.

Canada hockey game

The perfect Toronto evening

For dinner, grubs up in Kensington Market and then get your skates on to catch a Toronto Maple Leafs game at Scotiabank arena. Hope you've got some room in your suitcase for some classic Canadian sports memorabilia.
