The Megacity

Toronto is Canada’s largest city: more than 2.7 million people inhabit the New York of the north, and it also boasts more than 200 ethnic groups living in its city limits. But the capital’s electric energy shouldn’t put you off. Walking through the St. Lawrence market or enjoying the vibe in the summer at the Distillery District, you’ll quickly realise that Toronto pulsates just as much as it soothes, a city by turns electric and intimate.

The top attractions in Toronto

1. The Distillery District

The Victorian brick buildings that form Toronto’s Distillery District once housed the headquarters of the Gooderham and Worts Distillery, the largest distillery in the world in the 19th century. Today, the distillery is a mecca of boutique stores, studios, bars, cafes, and theatres, one of Toronto’s—and Canada’s—foremost cultural destinations.

2. CN Tower

The CN Tower defines Toronto’s skyline in an unquestionable fashion. Take the 58-second elevator that will take you up the 553-metre Tower and enjoy the best view that the city has to offer. If you’re looking for something more adventurous, make sure to book the EdgeWalk tour, the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk on a wide ledge.

3. Toronto Island Park

A 13-minute ferry ride away, Toronto Island Park stretches for three miles from Ward’s Island to Hanlan’s Point, in between which you’ll find walking trails, beaches, amusement parks (kid-friendly), and charming cafes. Have a picnic on one of the many meadows or swim on the breezy Toronto Island beach, and make sure to visit the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse, one of the country’s oldest.

4. Toronto City Hall

Toronto’s City Hall is as futuristic as it is contemporary, a 27-storey tower celebrated for its distinctive architecture. Three arches circle above a fountain in front of the titanic building, to which Torontonians and tourists alike continually flock. In front of the striking building lies a bronze sculpture called Three-Way Piece No. 2 by Henry Moore, a memorial to the dropping of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, Japan.

5. Royal Ontario Museum

As one of the largest museums in North America and the largest in Canada, the Royal Ontario Museum is unmissable for any art and culture aficionado. The ROM is home to a superlative collection of 13 million paintings, cultural items and natural history specimens, featured in over 40 gallery and exhibition spaces.
