Niagara Falls


No list of top things to do in Toronto is complete without mentioning this incredible sight. Feeling brave? Stand a metre from the edge of Horseshoe Falls at the Table Rock for an incredible view, or if you're feeling more active, there are over 300km of bike trails and self-guided tours you can take. Those looking for a real heart-stopping thrill will enjoy the Journey Behind the Falls, where you can actually go into the falls themselves, descending 38 meters through solid rock in a lift to stand next to the curtain of water. There are also helicopter rides available for a jaw-dropping view, or nearby vineyards for those looking for a more chilled-out experience.

 

Rogers Centre

Toronto's Major League Baseball team, the Blue Jays, play their home games here, so if they are in town when you are, don't miss out on checking out a game! Show your support by donning a jersey and a blue hat, and get the best view by the waterfront, hot dog and beer in hand!

 

CN Tower


An iconic part of the city's skyline, this 553-meter structure packs a serious punch. Once the world's tallest tower, you can't miss it - and you won't want to miss out on a trip up top, either. Check out the view from the LookOut Level at 1,136 feet, walk on air on the Glass Floor at 1,122 feet or if you're feeling brave, head to the highest perch of all, the SkyPod, which towers over the city at a stomach-churning 1,465 feet. There's also a restaurant up here if you get hungry between gazing at the city.

 

St Lawrence Market

Named the world's best food market by National Geographic, this market is a must-see (or must-eat... lots) in the city. Open since 1803, it's home to over 120 sellers selling everything from gourmet bread to fresh vegetables and sweet treats aplenty. On Saturday's, don't be surprised if the wares are a little less edible - instead, antique dealers rock up to offer an amazing range of trinkets - perfect for a souvenir to take home for someone special.

 

Toronto Islands

If you need a break from the city, take a trip to one of Toronto's many islands. Hop on a ferry from downtown and enjoy the choppy waters on the way to Lake Ontario. It's easy to reach other islands from here, so take your pick! Center Island is more popular with visitors, whilst Ward's Island is truly beautiful, with a scenic boardwalk, quaint cottages, boats bobbing in the water and a beach cafe that features live music acts. You'll feel like you're a million miles away from the city!
