Toronto is the capital of the province of Ontario and is the largest city in Canada. Toronto is considered a global city and one of the world’s major financial cities. It leads the economic sectors of finance, business services, telecommunications, transportation, media, art, film, medical research, sport, education, and tourism.
Here are some interesting ideas you can do in the city:
Is one of those places that cinema and television have become a legend. One of the most interesting attractions in the area is the Maid of the Mist boat that sails in the summer season and allows you to get as close to the falls as possible and is a worthwhile experience.
There is also the option of Journey Behind the Falls, which allows you to see the falls from the inside or the Skylon Tower, which you can have, a nice elevated view of the entire area.
is a structure that is classified as the fourth highest in the world with a height of 553 meters. It is located in the center of the city and is one of its main tourist attractions.
It is the world emblem of Toronto city and its most recognizable construction. The CN Tower is one of the highest communications towers in the world and also offers a complete view of the city from the viewpoint of its upper part, where we can also enjoy the restaurant.
is a small set of islands located on Lake Ontario, a short distance from Downtown, and connected to each other by several bridges. They are an oasis of tranquillity in the face of the agitation of the city since all of them are a park.
It offers the possibility of enjoying long walks along its trails, good possibilities for a picnic afternoon or even taking a swim in one of its beaches. In addition, you will have the best view of the Toronto cityscape.
To get to them, there are three routes that depart from the dock at the end of Yonge Street. Each of them leads to a different
area of the islands, although the route to Center Island is the most popular.
Chinatown and Kensington Market:
Chinatown is the most popular neighborhood of the different foreign communities in Toronto. Its point of reference is the cross between Spadina and College Streets. It is a gastronomic and commercial landmark. There you will find fantastic Asiatic restaurants, especially Chinese.
Just behind Chinatown, is Kensington Market which is the hippie and alternative area par excellence of the city. It is quiet, alternative, somewhat bohemian neighborhood with some artistic details, cafes, small restaurants and second-hand clothing stores. Ideal for relaxing in one of the cafes, taking a piece of homemade cake.
Art Gallery of Ontario:
From Cezanne to Picasso through Rubens, Goya, Tintoretto or Toulouse-Lautrec. It also has an important collection of modern and contemporary art and important sections dedicated to photography and sculpture. However, much of its appeal lies in the temporary exhibitions it houses, usually with very large names in the world of painting.
The building itself is an interesting architectural work, as it was renovated by the architect Frank Gehry in 2004. Its southern front, made of glass and titanium, has become one of the symbols of the city.
Its location is in Dundas ST West, next to the intersection with Beverly, in the heart of the city.
