Visiting Toronto

Inside info

World famous, Toronto offers amazing tourist attractions and year-round events. It is also Canada's most diverse city, with dozens of multi-cultural sections, from little Italy to Chinatown. It is interesting to note that more people live in Toronto (over 2.48 million inhabitants) than in the other four Canadian Atlantic provinces combined. While in Toronto, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is a must see. It is filled with all sorts of things, from art from Asia to medieval suits of armour to Egyptian tools used in mummification. Then the National Tower offers a wonderful view of the whole city with a glass floor you can walk on and a great restaurant, the CN Tower Restaurant. The restaurant The Elephant and Castle is worth to see, it looks a little bit like a quaint British pub. There are funny statues of elephants all over the place, sometimes they even are on a boat rowing. The atmosphere is nice, and this is a good place to go and talk. Some brewpubs, such as ‘C'est What?’, 67 Front at Church, and the Steam Whistle brewery, located in an old train roundabout, are also to be seen. ‘C'est What’ has been serving up local flavours in food, drink and music since 1988, including a showcase of local visual arts. It is very friendly and offers a great selection of 45 craft beers (including their own brews) from Canada to Jamaica to Germany.

Travel review

While in the United States, we went on a trip to Toronto mainly because, like crazy tourists, we wanted to see the Niagara Falls. However, Niagara Falls was so touristy that it was a bit of a disappointment. We therefore went to the Victoria Falls after and it was much better, we were able to bungee jump there… an unforgettable experience!Of course we went to the top of the CN Tower and the view is so spectacular from there that you can see what seems like the whole of Toronto, and then across Lake Ontario.We also discovered the Ontario Place, an entertainment area built over the lake ‘ Toronto Islands’, where the locals escape the buzzing city for picnicking and grilling, park walks and cycling. We were also lucky to see the Canadian National Exhibition that runs 18 days from mid-August and which proposes exhibitions and activities for the whole family. Don’t miss it!
