    Canada’s capital of culture

How to enjoy Toronto

With striking architecture and a cultural scene that embraces everything from fine art to indie music, Toronto is a buzzing city with a laid back feel

  • Head to the Air Canada Centre for Maple Leaf hockey home games or major touring acts such as Alicia Keys, Beyoncé or Green Day
  • The Annex of Yorkville is where to go for exclusive shopping, including labels such as Gucci and Vera Wang as well as the upscale department store, Holt Renfrew
  • Niagara Falls is just across Lake Ontario and makes for a sensational day trip. For the ultimate view, consider a heli-tour

For a sense of old Toronto, explore the Distillery District. It features charming brick-paved pedestrian streets and strikingly restored Victorian industrial buildings. It is home to theaters, restaurants, and galleries, as well as bijou fashion boutiques and jewelry stores. For colorful food and farmers’ markets, explore the stalls and stores of the popular St Lawrence Market.

No trip to Toronto would be authentic without a visit to the CN Tower. At a height of 1,815 feet, it is one of the tallest buildings in the world and offers a range of vertiginous thrills. The most sedate of these is the 3600 Restaurant which gives you the opportunity to savor an award-winning menu (melt in the mouth lobster and steak) while admiring the revolving view. If you are a little more daring, try to step out on the glass floor. If you are an adrenaline junkie, go for the edge walk. It is too scary to describe, so we’ll just say one word: outside.

    When to visit Toronto

    Winter can get cold, seriously cold, although the city tries to protect its people by providing subterranean walkways to the downtown stores and offices. The arts festival North By Northeast takes place over a week in June and includes music, film, comedy, interactive presentations and art.
