Visit One of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World
Dubbed by the American Society of Civil Engineers, the CN Tower is one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. From its incredible architecture and its monumental height towering above the city to its practical use offering tourists and locals alike something to do.
Inside, it offers fun activities such as the glass floor towering nearly 1200 feet, the 360-degree restaurant that sits atop the building, and of course, the SkyPod, known to be one of, if not the highest public observation deck in the world!
Pay Homage to the Legends of Canada’s Sport
Canada is known for many things, one of them being ice hockey. Famed as Canada’s sport, ice hockey has deep roots across the country, with seven (7) Canadian teams in the National Hockey League (NHL), one of them being in Toronto.
If you’re in the greater Toronto area (GTA), you’d be remiss not to visit the Hockey Hall of Fame, located just 1 mile from the city’s center. A museum in its own right, the Hockey Hall of Fame is a worthy visit whether you’re a diehard hockey fan or not!
See a Professional Sporting Event
Speaking of professional sports, Toronto is home to several professional sporting teams that play year-round, from their MLS soccer team to the Toronto Maple Leaf’s NHL team and the Toronto Raptors NBA team.
As a city built around their pro sports teams, you’d be missing out if you didn’t at least catch one game while visiting. Tickets are fairly cheap if you’re flexible on seats, and the entertainment alone is worthwhile whether you’re a sports fan or not.
Head Out on the Town in the Distillery District
Finally, to finish off an eventful day, week, or however long you’re visiting, be sure to pay a visit to Toronto’s distillery district and paint the town red! There are festivals or outdoor exhibits at any given time of year, not to mention being surrounded by bars, restaurants, distilleries, and breweries.
Even if you’re not the party animal of the bunch, the distillery district comprises beautiful architecture, with several surrounding businesses transforming old historic Victorian buildings into their place of business.
There are endless things to do in Toronto, no matter the time of year and no matter your interests and intentions. Whatever you choose to do in the big city, you’re sure to enjoy it!
