Your Travel Guide To Toronto Canada

  • The CN Tower
    • If you really want to see all of Toronto in a fantastic way, you need to hit up the CN Tower and get a birds eye view of the city. There’s also a revolving restaurant, so if you’re a little bit hungry, you don’t have to go far.
  • Chinatown
    • Soak up the sights of Chinatown! This is a little more of a novelty if you’ve never been to another Chinatown (in California or New York City, for example). You can shop for some Chinese art or souvenirs, see the interesting architecture and roofing, or get candy, tea, fresh fruit, vegetables, or snacks from the vendors. It’s a nice way to spend an afternoon!
  • Richmond Station
    • On the corner of Yonge and Richmond, this restaurant receives rave reviews. Amazing food and service make Richmond Station a Toronto gem. Try the rib steak or any of the incredible desserts– you won’t be disappointed.
  • The Senator Restaurant
    • Located on 249 Victoria Street, The Senator is the oldest restaurant in Toronto! It’s been there since 1860, and has great diner food to this day. Try the fluffy pancakes or the omelettes, or any of its organic grub and great coffee. You’ll love it, and have a good story to boot.
  • Fresh
    • With 4 locations, this Toronto joint showcases what vegetarian can truly be. Great taste and veggie options make this location a must visit. Great for vegetarians or just trying something new!

There’s also an audio tour that is available in eight languages included with admission, which is $24 for adults, $18 for Seniors and Youth, and $14 for children– but kids age 3 and younger are free.
  • Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada
    • This amazing aquarium is such a treat to visit! With thousands of marine species and crazy fun activities available such as photography classes and yoga classes(coming again in 2016), dive shows, dining, shopping, and of course, marine life, you’ve got to see the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada for yourself!
  • Parlour
    • Parlour is a sophisticated vintage lounge that’s just like a speakeasy! The staff adds to the ambience, as they’re dressed in corsets.

Loved by locals, visiting Pravda is like stepping into a time machine to across the globe– just with a better drink list.
  • The Waterfront
    • With a beach, board walk, and the Toronto Islands (sans cars), you’re bound to be able to relax a little. If you love the sound of waves and the sight of any body of water, let alone the ocean, the waterfront is for you.
  • Niagara Falls
    • Book a tour, or just go see it! These falls are not to be missed. Or just go on a boat ride, taking the guided Maiden of the Mist. Why not?!
