1. Kensington Market
Kensington Market is a multicultural neighborhood located in Downtown Toronto. During the weekends of the spring and summer months, they have a street festival filled with plenty of music, food, fashion, and fun. The Market had a little something for everyone: to a bar where you can take shots, vegan sweets and treats, clothes for fashion, tattoo parlors, the list goes on… The next time you visit Toronto, make sure you check this place out.
2. Niagara Falls
If you have never been to Niagara Falls it is one place that you have to visit at least once in a lifetime. The Falls are located a little over an hour away and the best part about it, it’s free! The Canada side is a better side to view the Falls so make sure you check it out while you are visiting Toronto. Even though it is free to view the Falls, you do have to pay for the tours and excursions while you are there.
3. Dinner at 360 Resturant in CN Tower
Everyone knows about the CN Tower, the second-largest building in the world! Did you know that they have a restaurant located inside called the 360 Resturant? The restaurant is called 360 because it rotates slowly 360 degrees to give you a panorama view of the city. The food and drinks are moderately priced and the ambiance gave you an upscale feel. This experience is definitely needed when visiting Toronto.
4. Jurassic Park
If it’s free then it’s for me! Jurassic Park in Toronto is an outside area where they will show professional sports games that are taken place in the Scotiabank Arena for free. Let’s face it, it can be expensive to go to an actual professional sports game but this way you can view the games that are taken place with sports fans alike and feel like you are actually in the game. Depending on the season and the sport this would be a great alternative than a sports bar.
5. Shop on Queen Street
Let’s face it, Toronto has some nice, hippie, shopping places that are original, to say the least. Queen Street is no different. Queen Street is a street filled with original boutiques and mainstream stores like. If you love to shop and want to buy something that you will only find in Toronto then this is the place to go.
5. Harbourfront Centre
Located just outside of Downtown Toronto, Harbourfront Centre has tons to offer with restaurants, bars right off the water, a concert center, boats, and walking trails alike. This is the one place that you have to check out if you love nice sceneries and chill atmosphere perfect for relaxing.
6. Toronto Professional Sports Game
This one is for all of my ballers! If you can afford to go to a Toronto-team sports game, GO! Toronto fans are intense and full of life, and sports rule the city. Whether you are a basketball fan and think ball is life or a hockey fan and think that fighting on ice is the best thing since sliced bread you have to attend a game.
7. Tea Room at Windsor Hotel
It’s tea time! When was the last time that you had a tea party where you can dress up in dresses and hats? Tea Room at Windsor Hotel is a beautiful hotel with two tea rooms with the classic England layout that you’ve seen only in movies. They had tea, a three-course meal tier, and they even had alcohol. I had the Hennessy mint and let me tell you, that drink was way too strong for 1 pm in the afternoon. Definitely, a place that you should stop by if you’re feeling fancy.
8. Yonge-Dundas Square
You’ve probably heard of New York’s City Times Square but you haven’t seen anything if you haven’t seen Yonge-Dundas Square. Dundas Square is the same exact feel as Times Squares where there are a ton of people, stores, shops, restaurants, and everything you can imagine. If you are not a fan of crowds, then this may not be the place for you. If you like New York but need something a little cleaner, then this is definitely a place that you should check out.
