If you’ve got a travel itch and you’re wondering where to scratch it, consider Toronto. It’s called “New York City Run By the Swiss,” and there’s no better moniker for a city that has a bit of everything. From sports to shopping to people-watching, Ontario’s capital will rock your world.
Things to Do
If you’re a sports fan, you can take in a Blue Jays or Toronto FC game at the ballpark downtown, depending on the season when you’re visiting. The Maple Leafs also play downtown, and with the Hockey Hall of Fame nearby, there’s always a competitive spirit near most Toronto hotels. Visit the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the Aga Khan Museum of India, all located in the Discovery District, to enjoy exhibits as diverse as the city itself. Or, if you’re looking for some retail therapy, the Eaton Centre downtown is an urban shopping destination where you’ll find the perfect souvenir. And it’s almost a rite of passage for every Toronto visitor to see the entire city skyline from an observation level on the historic CN Tower, located near many downtown hotels.
Food and Drink
If you’d rather experience the city through its cuisine, you’re in luck because Toronto’s got something for every palate. Near the Entertainment District, Chinatown boasts many places to enjoy authentic dim sum, while, in the East York neighborhood, restaurants in Greektown offer traditional Greek food. And just north of the Entertainment District, you’ll find Little Italy, providing plenty of pasta and authentic Italian wine to titillate your taste buds. After you’ve eaten, relax in one of the city’s many historic hotels before getting up and doing it all again tomorrow, thanks to the awesome Toronto hotel deals you found.
