Toronto Attractions

CN Tower

It’s not every day that you get the opportunity to visit one of the seven wonders of the modern world, but when you visit downtown Toronto you can do just that at the iconic CN Tower. There are various ways you can experience the CN Tower, but as a minimum you should take a trip to the Look Out to take in the awe inspiring views of the city and beyond from the tallest tower in the world, and the Glass Floor where nothing but a pane of glass separates you from the ground more than 1000 feet below you! If you want to take it higher still, head up to the Sky Pod at 1465 ft, or try the EdgeWalk for the most adrenalin filled experience of all. With movies, a motion theatre ride, and excellent food and views at the 360 Restaurant, there is plenty to keep you occupied on a visit to this Toronto icon.
Oh, and finding it shouldn’t be a problem since it is visible from virtually anywhere you might be stood in the downtown area.

Art Gallery of Ontario

For the culturally minded, no trip to Toronto is complete without visiting the Art Gallery of Ontario, also known as the AGO. The Canadian Collection is particularly impressive with works from such renowned masters as Emily Carr and the Group of Seven, as well as housing an extensive collection of Inuit art. The African and Oceanic, and European Collections also represent important regional focus, with further highlights being offered by the Photography Collection which includes over 40,000 works dating from the earliest days of this art form, and the Modern and Contemporary Collection where works from Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro rub shoulders with works from present day Canadian artists such as John Massey and Brian Jungen. As you would expect from an art museum of this stature, in addition to the permanent collections, there are also several major exhibitions showing at any one time.

Toronto Maple Leafs

Perhaps the most famous sports team in Canada, Toronto Maple Leafs NHL ice hockey team play at the Air Canada Centre in downtown Toronto. Unsurprisingly, tickets to see a Leafs game are difficult to come by, but if you plan your trip early enough you may be lucky enough to witness one of Canada’s most popular hockey teams on home ice.
