Delicious food

Toronto’s motto is ‘Diversity Our Strength,’ and this diversity of Toronto's extends to its neighborhoods due to its food scene. You will get a vast range of eateries that will increase your hunger and make you a regular visitor to the city. Whether you are a traditional, Korean, Indian food lover, you will have a plethora of restaurants that will provide you with a range of tasty and delicious food. Why not visit St Lawrence Market to try out some of the fresh produce and local offerings that Toronto can throw your way?

Culture hub

Toronto is one of Canada’s main cultural hubs. In Toronto, you’ll find the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario, as well as countless cinemas and theatres that will fulfill the wishes of any culture vulture – it was home to the world’s first ever permanent IMAX theatre after all! Not to mention the iconic CN Tower, a telecommunications and tourism hub, which was the tallest building in the world for over 30 years before it was eclipsed by the Burj Khalifa in 2007.

Toronto Island Park

Initially built in 1862 as a relaxation community for the well off, Toronto Island Park is presently a top decision for everybody to disengage and decompress from their day-to-day routine. The Park is made out of 15 little vehicle-free islands in Lake Ontario, where you'll be able to discover parklands, sea shores, and bicycle ways for a day out that will surely put a smile back on your face. Stress be gone!

Lake Ontario

One of the five Great Lakes, Lake Ontario, is a fundamental piece of what makes Toronto so extraordinary as a city. When the climate is fine, local people rush to the waterfront for seashore days, travels, cafés, and markets. If you really want to enjoy the water more thoroughly, prepare to jump, climb, stand up an oar, or quest for shrouded seashores, inlets, and tidal ponds on the shores of this picture-perfect lake.

Nature is all around

Although Toronto is a huge and bustling city, there’s plenty of greenery to be enjoyed. Besides the aforementioned Toronto Island Park and Lake Ontario, you can also pay a visit to urban lungs like High Park, Riverdale Farm, and Rouge National Urban Park, to name but a few. If you’re after a family day out, you may also want to check out the Toronto Zoo and Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, both daytrips that will leave any animal-obsessed kid with treasured memories for years to come.

Sports haven

If you have visited the city before, then you must know that Toronto is replete with sports centers, casinos, and gaming points. If it’s your first time paying Toronto a visit, and you’re keen on sports, you need to go watch a game at the Scotiabank Center, take in some baseball at the Rogers Center, and soak in some soccer on the BMO Field. Hockey buff? Check out the Hockey Hall of Fame for a walk through sporting history where the all-time greats are commemorated.

It's safe, clean, and cool

Toronto is an efficient, safe, and clean city, yet not very many people realize that we have a cool streak. Up for a spot of people-watching the trendiest denizens of Toronto? Go watch the city come to life at Trinity Bellwood Park on Queen St. West. Furthermore, you might be rewarded with the opportunity to take a selfie with the elusive white squirrel.

Why should I visit Toronto?

We’ve barely scratched the surface of the reasons why we think you should visit Toronto at the earliest chance you get, but you really have to see it for yourself. It is guaranteed that the city will not disappoint you and we’re sure that your trip will be one you’ll never forget.
