Toronto’s cultural impact has been considerable, and the resulting slew of museums and galleries demonstrates just how important art is to the city. During your trip to Toronto check out The Art Gallery of Toronto, the largest art gallery in Canada, which contains the world’s largest collection of Henry Moore sculptures. The Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art has extensive exhibitions of the best in ceramics, while the Royal Ontario Museum contains collections of Canadian folk art, as well as the world’s largest totem pole.
If you have a head for heights then a trip to the top of the CN Tower is a must. The walkway that runs around the viewing platform at the top is probably best left to those who do not suffer from vertigo, though.
Back on terra firma you’ll find the Hockey Hall of Fame right on Yonge Street in downtown Toronto. Canadians take their ice hockey very seriously, and if you want to really immerse yourself in Canadian culture then try to catch a game during your trip to Toronto. The Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League are the pride of the city but if tickets aren’t available, the Marlies of the American Hockey League also play downtown. Toronto is host to several others sports teams including the Raptors of the NBA, the Blue Jays of Major League Baseball, and the Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. Toronto FC of Major League Soccer is another very popular draw for locals.
If there’s one absolute ‘must-see’ during your time here, it’s a trip to one of the seven natural wonders of the world – Niagara Falls. Home to three different waterfalls, Niagara Falls is around an hour and half drive from Toronto.
