Why visit Toronto?

The dynamic and international city of Toronto is considered to be Canada’s most fun city, not least because of its wonderful culinary scene, buzzing nightlife, excellent shopping, great parks and lakeside beaches. There are lots of things that make this city one worth visiting, are the lively events and festivals, along with the multicultural, progressive and warm people that populate Toronto.

Things to do in Toronto

Start exploring the city by stepping into its excellent museums, such as the Ontario Science Centre, or the Royal Ontario museum. Both places are family friendly, with lots of educational and fun exhibits, which range from science to natural history and art.

In summer, head down to Lake Ontario, and enjoy the beaches that run along the shoreline, or engage in some fun watersports, such as stand-up paddle boarding, windsurfing, or just relax on a boating cruise around the lake. If you’d rather stay on dry land, then you can explore the Waterfront Artisan Market that runs on weekends in the summertime.

Other highlights include heading up to the top of the CN Tower for the best view of the city, or heading out to the curious Casa Loma, a large castle built by an eccentric millionaire in the early 1900s.
