Take in the city sights

Even if you’re a local, there’s something special about a leisurely stroll through High Park on a Saturday or exploring the eclectic thrift shops in Kensington Market. If you’re into Vintage, a stop in the Kensington neighbourhood is a must, including shops like Bungalow, Orbital Arts and Blue Banana Market.

Additionally, Toronto is renowned for its culturally rich attractions. Take in the rotating exhibitions at the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) or get your history fix at the Royal Museum of Ontario.

Explore a foodie’s playground

Hungry after all that walking? Toronto is home to some shiny foodie gems. Grab a Greek platter at Mamakas or if you’re feeling something cozier, sip on some hot udon noodles at Raku.

Experience Toronto at night

After a long day of exploring, it’s time to unwind and experience Toronto’s colourful nightlife. Check out a drag show at The Drink, sip rooftop cocktails at The Drake or belt your favourite ballads at Bar Mordecai, White Claw’s new Wes-Anderson inspired karaoke room. If you’re feeling up for a good laugh, head to Yuk Yuk’s or the Comedy Bar for an improv or stand up show.

Adventure to nearby attractions

If you’re up for exploring, Toronto is surrounded by adorable little towns, beautiful scenic views and unique fall experiences, just a short drive away. Take in the views of Niagara Falls, or, better yet, stay a little closer to home and explore the Toronto Island.
