Toronto’s iconic CN Tower was once the tallest freestanding structure in the world and is still home to the highest glass floor paneled elevators. You can hop into an elevator and ride all the way up the 553 m for some of the most amazing panoramic views of the surrounding city and Lake Ontario. Here you can also try the Edgewalk, a place where visitors are attached to an overhead safety rail and can walk hands-free on a 1.5 m ledge encircling the top of the Tower’s main pod at 356 m high. Pretty amazing!
Visit the Toronto Zoo
Considered Canada’s premier zoo, the Toronto Zoo does not only represent more than 500 species but makes considerable effort to protect and conserve endangered species from around the world. Guests can enjoy the Zoo’s 5000 animals along the 10 km of walking trails. Spending time at the Toronto Zoo is a great way for kids and adults alike to enjoy this Canadian metropolis.
High Park, the Central Park of Toronto
This large, centrally located park is the highlight of Toronto’s park systems for combining extensive natural areas with maintained parkland. Despite being in the middle of the most populous city in Canada, over one-third of the park remains a natural site and is home to several species of wildlife and rare plant species. High Park is a delightful way to escape the bustling city life and immerse yourself in the fresh air and natural outdoors.
Hockey Hall of Fame
This interactive museum is a great way to get introduced to the sport if you are looking to feel like one of the locals, but it will also enliven true hockey fans with the wide collection of hockey-related artifacts such as the original Stanley Cup. No trip to Toronto is complete without a dose of hockey in one form or another, and this is a great way to get your fill of the sport.
St. Laurence Market
This is one of the world’s great markets where each merchant has a square on a lively and authentic patchquilt. A visit to this gigantic market space is a wonderful way to spend a day and get an authentic taste of Toronto and of the history behind this city.
These are just a few Toronto places that you should definitely check out but I think you’ve made a pretty clear idea by now that Toronto is a wonderful place to visit.
